One-Of-Two Acid Green Porsche 918 Spyder Migrates To Australia

An Acid Green Porsche 918 Spyder has just landed in Sydney, Australia and is looking for a new owner.

There are reportedly just two 918 Spyders in existence with that color scheme. One is this example and the other resides in the United States.

We actually had the chance to see this very car at Top Marques Monaco in April 2016 and were blown away by the vibrant paint job. Since then, the car made its way to the Middle East and, in 2017, was listed for sale from Dubai’s Knight International.

Somehow, the car left Dubai and landed to Australia. The company listing the car, Classico Motori, claims that it only has 88 km (54 miles) on the clock, which means it’s barely been driven. What’s more, it is also outfitted with the optional Weissach package and is thought to be one of just a handful of 918 Spyders in Australia.

No asking price has been made public, but the dealer is probably looking for at least $3 million AUD ($2.1 million) for the one-of-two Porsche 918.

Unlike the LaFerrari, prices of the Porsche 918 Spyder haven’t skyrocketed since the vehicle was released back in 2013. Whereas Ferrari’s hypercar is selling for upwards of $4 milion to $5 million on the “used” car market, it’s not hard to find used 918s for sale for less than $1.5 million. However, given this particular example’s exclusivity and taking into account sky-high vehicle prices in the Land Down Under, it should sell for more than it would in the United States.
