The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder will debut in the UK today at this year’s MPH Prestige and
Performance Motor Show which will take place at Earls Court in London.
The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder was designed in the Netherlands and under its skin there is a 4.2-litre V8 engine that is able to unleash 400 HP. Just like with all Spyker models, the C8 Aileron Spyder draws inspiration from planes and jet engines, while the car’s all-aluminium space frame structure and suspension are the same as on the C8 Aileron Coupe.
In terms of performance the Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder which uses a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, is able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of (187 mph) 300 Km/h.
A ZF six-speed automatic transmission is also available as an option.
Spyker press release :
Zeewolde, The Netherlands (4 November 2010) – The Spyker C8 Aileron
Spyder concept makes its UK debut today at MPH The Prestige and
Performance Motor Show at Earls Court in London.
For the first time, British motoring enthusiasts visiting the annual
celebration of performance motoring will be able to lay their eyes on
one of the most exclusive cars in the world.
The 400hp 4.2-litre V8-engined Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder concept –
designed in The Netherlands – exhibits the exquisite aircraft-inspired
signature detailing with which the Spyker brand is synonymous.
From its jet engine-inspired air intakes to its exterior mirrors
mounted on two turbine fan blades and unique 10-blade 19-inch
Rotorblade™ alloy wheels, the second-generation Spyker C-line sportscar
is inspired by the jet turbine era of aviation.
The C8 Aileron Spyder shares its all-aluminium space frame structure
and new suspension system with the C8 Aileron coupe, while its aluminium
superformed body – with minimal ‘shut’ lines – is finished by hand by
expert craftsmen.
The interior features Spyker’s trademark diamond-stitched quilted
leather upholstery.  The aviation theme is presented via the brushed
aluminium dashboard and turbine-style air vents.  And the polished
aluminium Chronoswiss dash toggle switches and dials perfectly
complement and enhance the ultra-exclusive Spyker motoring experience.
The C8 Aileron Spyder sports a high-quality canvas soft-top with a
glass rear windscreen, which retracts electro-hydraulically out of
sight, ensuring a clean, undisturbed profile.  Its aluminium tonneau,
with two buttresses upholstered in quilted leather matching the car’s
interior, proudly features the company’s motto ‘Nulla Tenaci Invia Est
Via’: for the tenacious, no road is impassable.  An aluminium luggage
rack is mounted immediately behind the roll hoops, on which a
purpose-designed wing-shaped aluminium, leather-trimmed luggage case can
be strapped.
The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder, along with short wheelbase C8
Laviolette and C8 Spyder models, features at MPH The Prestige and
Performance Motor Show at Earls Court, London until Sunday 7 November.
