Wallpapers: the Porsche 918 Spyder
Remember this car from series 21? The crazy 875bhp hyper-hybrid is ready for your desktop...

The wait for Porsche's Carrera GT replacement, the 918, was a long one. We were drip-fed images, sat in on passenger rides, and took it for a development drive.
But, last year, at the Frankfurt motor show, the sneaky people from Stuttgart dropped a bomb on us. A 6min 57 second-shaped bomb. The hybrid-hypercar had smashed the Nordschleife lap record with Marc Lieb behind the wheel averaging 111mph. There was only one thing for it. We had to drive it.
And we did. A lot. Ollie Marriage took the rolling tech-fest round Porsche's R&D facility near Stuttgart and then out onto the open road to a place called Bad Wildbad. The trip left our Motoring Editor concluding that the 918 is, "quite possibly the most complete hypercar there has ever been."
So if you fancy sprucing up your desktop background with pics from the trip, click the size that takes your fancy, download it, and right click it onto your screen.
