The Spyker C8 Aileron has been brought to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where the model has shared the same space with the B6 Venator Concept.
Even if the Spyker C8 Aileron can’t be really called new, the Dutch based automaker has still chosen it for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where the model has shared the same space with the brand new B6 Venator Concept, which will eventually be transformed into a production car, a direct rival for the entry-level versions of the Porsche 911 or Audi R8, but with a starting price which will be anything but “entry-level” of approximately 125,000 euros.
“The all-new Spyker C8 Aileron marks the next step in Spyker Cars’ evolution. Inspired by the company’s aviation heritage, Spyker’s second-generation sports car features cues from second-generation aircraft propulsion, highlighting the turbine blade, rather than the propeller which adorned many elements ofSpyker’s first generation cars”, as the automaker is saying.
Power to the Spyker C8 Aileron is being provided by a 4.2 liter V8 engine, made by Audi, which is delivering 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque at 3,500 rpm. The unit is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Spyker C8 Aileron is weighing 1,560 kg (3,139 lbs) and it’s 4,618 mm long, 1,953 mm wide and 1,270 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,725.5 mm.
