Porsche 918 Spyder spits flames on dyno

Hybrid hypercar puts on a light show

Porsche 918 Spyder spits flames on dyno

One of the coolest features of Porsche's 918 Spyder hypercar is its crazy top-exit exhausts.

They're there for all sorts of important engineering reasons, like reducing temperatures, saving weight, and freeing up space for aerodynamics, but even more importantly it makes the car REALLY LOUD and they spit blue flames - BLUE FLAMES!

The saddest thing is that when you're driving your 918 Spyder, you can't see the flames as they're being emitted behind your head, though come to think of it, that's not particulary sad as it means you're driving a 918 Spyder!

Which hypercar would be parked in your garage if your lotto numbers came up (a few times)?
