On 11 April 2018, Porsche revealed an evolution of the 919 Hybrid. It broke the lap record of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps with a lap time of 1 minute, 41.77 seconds, with Neel Jani behind the wheel. Watch the video from Supercar Blondie for more info:
Jani was more than 12 seconds faster than the standard 919 Hybrid’s 2017 pole position lap of 1 minute, 54.097 seconds. During the lap, Jani recorded a speed trap at 359 km/h (223.1 mph) on the Kemmel Straight, with an average speed of 245.61 km/h (152.6 mph).
The V4 engine was retained for the Evo, producing 720 PS 710 hp without fuel flow restrictions. As the amount of recovered energy that could be used was increased from 6.37 MJ (1.77 kWh) for Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps to 8.49 MJ 2.36 kWh, the output of the electric motors was increased from 400 to 440 PS 395 to 434 hp./Supercar Blondie
