The 2010 Spyker C8 Aileron makes its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show.
The unfamiliar brand Spyker Cars comes from the Netherlands and only dates back to 2000. However, the Spyker name has a long history dating back to 1875 as a fighter aircraft manufacturer during World World I.
The Spyker C8 Aileron features exquisit sports car styling and unique clear glass ceiling. The Aileron also features an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 400 bhp and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. Either a Getrag 6-speed manual gearbox or a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission can be ordered with the car. The chassis is new, an aluminum space-frame design with suspension designed and produced by Lotus. The front and rear aluminum double wishbone suspension carries 19-in. wheels that are slowed by 13.8-in. front and 12.1-in. rear brake rotors.
The Spyker C8 Aileron retails for $209,990 with the manual gearbox, and $219,990 with the automatic, both excluding options. A convertible version of the car debuts at this summer’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
