Circle Porsche of Long Beach, California, recently received the first Porsche 918 Spyder to be delivered to its owner via their showroom. The 918 they got turned out to be one of the most exclusive examples of the hyper car in the world, finished almost entirely in a unique shade of orange.

The orange Porsche 918 Spyder is a fully customized model with unique touches inside and out, and also fitted with the Weissach Package which adds extra aero parts, lowers the weight, and increases the power.

Now, since there are endless ways you can customize your 918 and make it absolutely unique, some way find painting it in plain old orange a bit unimaginative. But it’s the color the owner liked, and we have to say, it does look rather exquisite. The contrast the paint work makes with the carbon roof, mirrors, and aero kit is certainly very charming.
