Porsche appears to have let slip a rash of 918 Spyder images that look to be lifted from a company brochure. The shots give us a better idea of what buyers can look forward to when they plunk down their fat stacks of cash. We are particularly smitten by the Martini livery wrap, though a Salzburg Racing exterior is also available. Those who prefer pricier paint can cough up a little over $65,000 for Liquid Metal Grey or Liquid Metal Blue finishes. The lifted images also show that the 918 Spyder will come with a clear-coat carbon fiber targa roof panel.

More importantly, the 770-horsepower Porsche hybrid supercar will bow with an optional Weissach Package. There's no word on how much the pack will cost, but it will feature six-point harnesses, upgraded brakes and a focus on saving weight wherever possible. As such, bits like the armrest, door storage, air conditioning and stereo all get the boot to cut the vehicle's curb weight by 77 pounds. Check out the gallery for a closer look, and be sure to have a peek at a new video of the 918 Spyder caught on city streets in the video below.

      Oh my... just me or does this car get more and more gorgeous every time I see it? ALWAYS gotta give props when they can take a car from radical concept to production with minimal changes. WOW. I simply cannot wait until you guys get your hands on this bad boy. Autoblog: The Carrera GT is still a pretty relevant car even after all these years - lookswise and performance. A comparison article between the two would not be completely ludicrous. And of course, I can't wait to see how this competes with the new Enzo and the new McLaren when they decide to show face. Maaaaybe throw in the Aventador for good measure... Thanks!

      love the simple (for supercars) exterior design; it looks purposeful, not flamboyant...well, if you pass up on the cool race skins. the interior is amazing. only negative for me is the Ferrari-ish front intakes.

      God have mercy on the man that has to clean those wheels. I thought my E46 M3 18"s were bad.

        My first job was at a small car dealer, and I had to wash the lot every Saturday. I have placed many a curse on OEM wheel designers...

        well, i think it IS STUNNING, but from an engineering perspective. Porsches don't bother about beauty contest...

      Looks wise, just like the Carrera GT, I find the "lines" of the car very generic. Looks like the car got mated with a Ferrari 430 with a Audi R8 and then through a boring filter.

        So you're basically taking two award winning designs and mating them together. I'll take that "boring" looking car any day.

        I somewhat agree. If I had to complain, some of the lines are a little softer than I would have preferred. The headlights and some of the vents are a bit too rounded for my tastes. I'm not saying it needs to be a stealth fighter Lambo, but something a little closer to the sharp design of the R8 would have been better. That said, I loooove all the graceful curves of the body especially from the side. It's immediately obvious that this car is something very special. I like the unique idea of the fun sponsored livery, but I would never purchase one like that. I'll take one in Dark Blue Metallic please! But I like the 918 design far better than the Carrera GT. This makes the Carrera GT look like a toy or the Boxster's big brother. What's great is that I imagine the 918 will age just as gracefully as the Carrera GT has.
