Porsche takes the 918 to Aussie Outback and goes flat out
When the NT government recently removed the speed limit on some of their roads, you knew it was going to open the way for some one to do something cool.
Well Porsche has done just that.
Porsche recently brought out to Australia one of their stunning new Hybrid 918 Spyder Super car.
It appeared at the Australian Grand Prix, where Mark Webber did some great demonstration laps in it around the track.
Webber even took Porsche fan and actor Eric Bana for a ride around the track in the car.
So after the Grand Prix, Porsche had the great idea of taking the 918 Spyder to the Northern Territory to let it run loose on the open speed limit roads.

The 918 makes for an amazing sight racing across the NT outback.
So with long straight roads at the 918 and Baird’s disposal high speeds were to expected.
Topspeed recorded ? 350km/h (217mph) to be exact
See the whole video of the 918 in action below.
