Ever wondered exactly how much effort goes into building a hybrid supercar? Got some time to kill this afternoon? Watch the above.

Porsche's 918 Spyder is a technological marvel, marrying a 4.6 litre V8 engine with a powerful electric motor to make 661kW of power and a colossal 1274Nm of torque.

With the optional Weissach Pack, it's enough to fire the carbon-chassis 918 to 100km/h in just 2.5 seconds - roughly half the time it took you to read that sentence.

200km/h arrives in 7.2 seconds, about the same time it takes the average hot hatch to hit 100km/h.

But beyond mere numbers, the 918 is special in every respect - especially the way it's constructed. There's no traditional production line here, just craftsmen (and women) methodically piecing components together in one of the cleanest environments outside of an operating theatre.
