This press release does not give much details but the lap time says a lot about the capacity of this 918 Spyder Hybrid. 

The record car is said to be a pre-production vehicle and therefore equipped with stock features, headlights, turn signals, street legal tires, and the optional Weissach package… This hybrid car is definitely one of a kind.

This impressive time of  7min and 14 seconds has been achieved by the famous Walter Rohrl, one of the greatest drivers of all time.
