Le Mans Winning Porsche 919 Hybrid on Display at Conrad Hotel Manila & S Maison
Porsche Philippines has brought in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race champion Porsche 919 Hybrid to Manila specially for the Filipinos. The first leg of the iconic sports car’s tour was held during the recent Porsche Festival 2016 at the SM Mega Fashion Hall in June, where the 919 Hybrid was displayed with the live feed of the race event at the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France where Porsche clinched the brand’s 18 victory in front of some of the 263,000 spectators at the 13.629-kilometer track.
The iconic race car is set to be showcased for another Porsche Festival called the “Le Mans Victory Tour” from July 16 to 24, 2016. The special display will be held at the newly opened high-end retail complex of S Maison by Conrad Manila luxury hotels and resorts, located at the forefront of the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City. Other excellent Porsche models such as the all-new 911, the performance Macan and the sporty Cayenne will also be available for viewing.
The 919 Hybrid embodies Porsche’s philosophy of “Intelligent Performance,” which stands for the development of innovative vehicle concepts. While pushing the envelope of performance, Porsche engineers make sure that technology is useful, practical, and makes the driving experience safer, more enjoyable, and even more environmentally sustainable.
Underscoring Porsche’s continued domination of motorsports is the fact that each of its vehicles that hit everyday streets benefits from the proud heritage of success on the racetrack. Each Porsche owner inevitably realizes the gains from the veritable high-speed proving grounds wherever the vehicle races and competes.
