ELLE Man (Canada) - - TREND -

The tech Hy­brid su­per­cars Who of­fers it Porsche’s 918 Spy­der, BM W’s i8 and Audi’s e-tron are all stun­ning sports cars with per­for­mance that’s equalled only by their im­pres­sive fuel ef­fi­ciency. The route Frank­furt to Mu­nich, Ger­many. The sad thing (if in­deed there is one) about driv­ing a car that goes from 0 to 100 kilo­me­tres per hour in un­der three sec­onds is that there’s pretty much no pub­lic road on which you can ex­pe­ri­ence its as­tound­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Nowhere ex­cept the au­to­bahn, that is. The rental won’t be cheap (and, yes, you’d like the in­sur­ance), but the ex­pe­ri­ence will be one you’ll tell the grand­kids about. The playlist Ease into the whole high-speed thing to the jaunty funk of The Kinks’ “Su­per­sonic Rocket Ship,” be­fore go­ing full throt­tle to the driv­ing rock of Ju­das Pri­est’s “Break­ing the Law.” And when you reach cruis­ing speed? Fi­nally time for Kraftwerk’s “Au­to­bahn.”
