Spyker C8 Preliator

Spyker is a Dutch producer of the C8 Preliator. Power comes from an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8 supercharged to 525-hp, which is routed through an open-linkage manual transaxle.
The chassis is an aluminum tubular space frame and the suspension is designed by Lotus. Total weight is 3065 lbs. 0-62 mph is claimed to take 3.7-seconds to a top speed of 201 mph.
The engine’s peak torque of 443 lb-ft at 3500 pm routes first through a Getrag six-speed manual or an optional ZF six-speed automatic, and then to a Drexler limited-slip differential on its way to the rear wheels.

Spyker will produce 50 examples, each costing $352,925 for the manual version and $359,541 for the automatic.
