  • Paint to Sample; the only 918 produced in Porsche’s historic Arrow Blue
  • Fitted with the desirable Weissach package
  • Single ownership and less than 11,000 kilometres from new
  • Outfitted with the Front Axle Lift System, painted key, and 918 photobook
  • Recently serviced and ready to be enjoyed


Delivered new to the United Kingdom and offered today from its original owner, the 918 Spyder presented here in ‘Paint to Sample’ Arrow Blue, over a Black Alcantara interior with Acid Green highlights, remains in splendid condition throughout.

Outfitted with the desirable Weissach package, this only furthered the 918’s ludicrous performance. Many parts of the interior normally swathed in leather were replaced with lighter Alcantara, and carbon fibre replaced a large portion of aluminium components. Super lightweight magnesium wheels were fitted, and the windscreen frame, roof, rear wings, and rear-view mirrors were also made out of carbon fibre. Titanium-backed brake pads and ceramic wheel bearings further differentiate the Weissach cars. Together, this accounted for a reduction of 45 kilograms of weight over the standard 918 Spyder and an instantly discernible increase in performance.

In the hands of its first and only owner, the 918 was used frequently but always well looked-after and maintained without regard to cost, as evidenced by its exceptional condition with just under 11,000 kilometres (6,800 miles) from new showing on its odometer.

In the spring of 2017, the car received a full, scheduled service by Porsche Great Britain and at the owner’s request has been fitted with a set of new tyres and Weissach-specific brake pads to ensure that the car is instantly ready for continued enjoyment out on the open road. It has been unused since the service was carried out. Furthermore, the car is completely covered in the latest generation paint protection film.

With hybrid offerings quickly becoming a mainstay in the Porsche lineup, the technologies that the 918 introduced have directly influenced other mainstays of Porsche’s lineup, namely the Cayenne and Panamera, which now have hybrid variants of their own. Like its spiritual predecessor, the 959, the 918 Spyder will undoubtedly be remembered as one of Porsche’s most groundbreaking automobiles. With the Paint to Sample 918s being the most sought-after cars and outfitted with the hugely desirable Weissach package, this particular 918 checks all the right boxes for the enthusiast looking to use Porsche’s newest and most impressive supercar as the factory intended.





• Vernice su campione; l'unica 918 prodotta nella storico colore Porsche Arrow Blue
• Dotata dell’ambito pacchetto ‘Weissach’
• Uniproprietario, meno di 11.000 chilometri da nuova
• Dotata del sistema di sollevamento dell’anteriore, chiave colorata e libro fotografico 918
• Recentemente tagliandata e pronta per essere guidata

Consegnata nuova nel Regno Unito e oggi offerta dal suo primo proprietario, la 918 Spyder qui presentata è stata verniciata in una tinta campione, Arrow Blue, con interni in Alcantara nera con dettagli in verde acido e si presenta in condizioni splendide.

La vettura è equipaggiata con l’ambito pacchetto ‘Weissach’, capace di aggiungere ancora qualcosa alle gia strepitose prestazioni della 918. Molte delle parti interne normalmente rivestite in pelle sono stati ricoperte con la più leggera Alcantara, mentre la maggior parte dei componenti in alluminio sono stati sostituiti con parti in fibra di carbonio. I cerchioni sono quelli realizzati nel super–leggero magnesio e, il telaio del parabrezza, il tetto, le ali posteriori ed i retrovisori, sono stati realizzati in fibra di carbonio. Le pastiglie dei freni con supporto in titanio ed i cuscinetti delle ruote in ceramica differenziano ulteriormente le vetture ‘Weissach’. L’insieme di tutti questi lavori, rappresenta una riduzione di 45 chilogrammi di peso rispetto alle 918 Spyder “standard” ed un aumento istantaneamente percettibile in termini di prestazioni.

Nelle mani del suo primo e unico proprietario, la 918 è stata utilizzata frequentemente, sempre ben curata e mantenuta senza riguardi ai costi, come dimostrano le sue condizioni eccezionali, con poco meno di 11.000 chilometri (6.800 miglia) percorsi da nuova, riportati sul suo contachilometri.

Nella primavera del 2017, la vettura ha ricevuto un tagliando completo, come da programma Porsche Gran Bretagna e, su richiesta del proprietario, è stata dotata di un treno di gomme nuove e nuove pastiglie dei freni con le specifiche Weissach, per essere sicuri che la macchina sia immediatamente pronta a far divertire senza problemi il nuovo proprietario, non appena ritornerà in strada. Non utilizzata sin dallo svolgimento del tagliando è stata, inoltre, completamente ricoperta dal film trasparente di protezione della vernice di ultima generazione.

Con il programma “ibrido” che si stà rapidamente affermando come uno dei pilastri dell’offerta Porsche, si può serenamente affermare che le tecnologie introdotte con la 918 hanno direttamente influenzato tutte le vetture che compongono la gamma della casa, compresi i due modelli principali Cayenne e Panamera, oggi disponibili anche in variante ibrida. Come il suo predecessore spirituale, la 959, la 918 Spyder sarà sicuramente ricordata come una delle più innovative automobili prodotte da Porsche. Con la speciale verniciatura “su campione” in aggiunta al pacchetto “Weissach”, questa 918 è, senz’altro, degna di entrare nel novero delle automobili più ambite ed in grado di soddisfare tutti i possibili desideri di un appassionato che voglia usare, proprio come previsto dala casa, la più moderna e impressionante supercar Porsche mai prodotta.
