Have a chunky bank account and want to do your bit for the planet? No need to compromise your rockstar lifestyle just buy a Porsche 918 Spyder.
The concept launched in 2010 has finally been made a reality. This beautiful beast of a hybrid beholds a 500 horsepower V-8 engine and two electric motors worth an extra 218 horses. It goes from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds, has a top speed of 199 mph, and gets the equivalent of 78 mpg. When running on electricity alone it can still reach 93 mph.

It will go into production in September 2013. Only 918 will be manufactured and 300 of those have reportedly already been sold. So you better order yours now, it’s only $850,000. Pocket change really….
