Porsche 918 Hits 350 km/h in the Australian Outback

918 spyder outback 600x338 at Porsche 918 Hits 350 km/h in the Australian Outback

Earlier today we showed you a video in which a Porsche 918 Spyder was racing a Koenigsegg Agera on the German Autobahn, and in doing so it almost reached 350 km/h on public roads. Now taking advantage of the momentum generated by that clip Porsche has released another video of the 918 going past 350, this time crossing the Australian Outback.

The point of all this is to leave no doubt about the ability of Porsche 918 Spyder to reach incredibly high top speeds without breaking a sweat. That said, these days with all the 400+ km/h hyper cars around 350 does not seem that impressive anymore.
