918 Spyder vs. racing aircraft

Ok, the 918 Spyder, Porsche's super sportscar, is fast. But faster than a racing aircraft? The German motoring TV show “GRIP – Das Motormagazin” put this to the test.

“How this car sets off is indescribable” – GRIP test driver Matthias Malmedie can barely hide his enthusiasm for the Porsche 918 Spyder with its 652 kW (887 hp)-engine. It shoots over the runway at Zweibrücken airport at speeds of over 300 km/h and readies itself for an extraordinary duel: 918 Spyder vs. Zivko Edge 540 V3. Super sportscar or ultra-fast racing aircraft – which will complete the same distance more quickly?
