A resident of Vietnam has created a budget copy of the Porsche 918 Spyder supercar. To do this, he used the simplest materials – in particular, plastic plumbing pipes.
This is reported by RBC-Ukraine Auto with a link to the King of Craft YouTube channel.
A Vietnamese blogger under the nickname King of Craft has published a video of his new project – a replica of the Porsche 918 Spyder supercar. A young Vietnamese decided to create a copy of a super-powerful and super-expensive car with a minimal budget, using inexpensive materials.
So, the supporting frame is made of simple closed-section metal profiles, and the spatial truss for the body is made of thin-walled pipes. For the body itself, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic pipes are used, used, among other things, for laying sewers.
The craftsman cut them lengthwise, leveling them under heat, and then installed them on the car frame, adjusting the shape right in place. In total, 6 such pipes were required to build the car, and the body lining consists of 300 pieces of plastic.
Technically, the Porsche copy is also much simpler than the original. The creation of the Vietnamese is set in motion by two electric motors installed at the rear wheels. Torque is transmitted to the wheels by means of a belt drive. The power of the motors is small, so this “supercar” is comparable in speed to mopeds.
In total, it took the Vietnamese “king of craft” (as his nickname is translated from English) to build a copy of the Porsche 90 days.
The original Porsche 918 Spyder was equipped with a hybrid powertrain with a total output of 887 hp. and could accelerate to 340 km/h.
