Porsche 918 Spyder review - better than the McLaren P1? - Design
A paragon of technology, but huge fun at the same time
When evo tested the 918 Spyder back-to-back with the McLaren P1 in issue 200, we noted that it shared the 'car-as-art' execution of its predecessor, the Carrera GT. The family ties are clear to see, and it nails a balance between looking clean and unadorned, and looking exquisite and expensive.
That car was also resplendent in a Martini Racing livery, one of several options available to 918 buyers to personalise their cars and a no-cost option on the Weissach Package. Personal taste will dictate whether you take the plunge on the graphics options - the evo office is split - but they certainly help the car stand out further.
