Jay Leno reviews Porsche 918 RSR Concept at Porsche Zentrum at The Quail

Jay Leno at the Porsche Zentrum at the Quail 0n Friday August 19th, 2011 during Monterey Auto Week. The 918 RSR concept was the highlight of the Porsche Zentrum display on Friday and Saturday, August 19-20. The 918 RSR concept is a high-end synthesis of Porsche's successful hybrid concepts -- the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and the 918 Spyder. It is a true 'racing laboratory' featuring an updated V8 engine from the successful RS Spyder race car with an output of 563 hp at 10,300 rpm. In addition, it features electric motors on the two front wheels that each contribute 75 kW, i.e. a total of 150 kW, to provide peak drive power of 767 hp. This additional power, which is generated during braking, is stored in an optimized flywheel accumulator.
