The Porsche 918 Spyder is the production car with the fastest lap time at the Nurburgring. It managed a staggering 6:57 lap around the legendary track, a time that is only bettered by pure race cars.

The Hybrid is about as fast as you can get in a street car. The price tag matches that speed with the U.S. cost being just a bit under $1 Million. This then is a technical showcase that only a few will ever get to experience.

Even seeing one driven is a rare treat. For those that were able to attend the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed they got to see just that, as the 918 Spyder tackled the famed hill climb.

This video shows the 918 at Goodwood as it takes its lap. There is plenty of good footage of the 887 horsepower plug-in hybrid. But make sure to grab a towel as you will likely be drooling by the end.
