Last September, Marc Lieb raced a Porsche 918 Spyder around Nurburgring, recording the circuit’s new record lap time of 6’57”. The car he drove was a little different than the average Spyder; this one had exposed carbon fiber instead of a paint finish, with a wrap applied on top to reduce weight.
The twin of that iconic record-breaking car is up for sale at CNC Motors of Ontario, California through DupontRegistry.com .
The matte black wrap is a bit unusual at first glance, but it’s actually a wrap to protect the bare carbon fiber. The result is weight savings of 14 lbs when compared to a painted Spyder. Weight was reduced further still on this model, adding a Weissach Package which makes use of titanium and ceramics to replace traditional alloys.
And if that isn’t enough to prove this car’s the real deal, it’s even been tested by Hurley Haywood, American’s most famous automotive endurance racer.
