Porsche's hot new hybrid-powered 918 Spyder has surfaced online this week, thanks to a handful of leaked brochure pages.

For its part, Porsche has already released plenty of data on its new supercar - including news today of a 7m14s lap of the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife, putting in the league of the Lexus LFA Nurburgring special.

The carmaker has also revealed in recent months that the 918's V8 petrol-electric hybrid powertrain produces upwards of 575kW, rocketing the supercoupe to 100km/h in around 3.2 seconds.

Despite the massive power figures, Porsche says the 918 Spyder's hybrid system will ensure fuel consumption figures as low as 3.0 l/100km - bettering most four-cylinder passenger cars... by a big margin.

The V8 plug-in hybrid system includes two electric motors fed by a lithium-ion battery pack, and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is also in play.

If you're into the 918 for its looks, you'll be interested to know that opting for the special Liquid Metal Blue or Grey paint options will sting you nearly $65,000 (in the US, at least).

That's on top of the European-market €645,000 purchase price (AU$803,492).

A special 'Weissach' package (seemingly nothing to do with the weissach axle of the Porsche 928) will also be offered for track-focused buyers, deleting the air conditioning, entertainment system and door storage compartments - saving around 35kg.

Watch for more 918 details to surface in the coming weeks.
