The sportscar maker has confirmed in their Christophorus Magazine that the 918 spyder will be unveiled for the first time at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. Deliveries are officially meant to begin during the same year, but after such a late unveiling, consumers could be waiting until 2014 to get their order. Hopefully the special edition 911 Turbo S that all 918 customers receive should keep them happy during the wait.
There will also be a few important changes under the sheet metal of the production 918 Spyder compared to the concept that surprised the world at the 2010 Geneva Motor show.
According to reports, the V8 will be based on the power unit from the RS Spyder LMP2 race car with a a displacement of 4.6 liters – the concept only had 3.4 liters.
