The Spyker C8 is a sports car produced by the Dutch automaker Spyker Cars since 2000. The design takes visual cues from the 1999 Spyker Silvestris V8 concept car but the proportions have been changed vastly.
The C8 Spyder is the original base model with an Audi 4.2 litre V8 engine giving the car 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp) and a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The C8 Spyder T has a more powerful Audi 4.2 litre V8 twin turbo with 525 PS (386 kW; 518 hp), giving it a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). The C8 Laviolette has the 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp) Audi engine but unlike the Spyder models that come with a fixed roof with a glass canopy. The C8 Double 12R is a version made specifically for the 24 hours of Le Mans also using the Audi V8 engine with 480 PS (353 kW; 473 hp) and the C8 Double 12S is the street version of this car which has the same glass canopy of the Laviolette and optionally has a 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp) engine instead of the 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp) engine from the C8 Spyder, giving it a top speed between 301 km/h (187 mph) and 345 km/h (214 mph) depending on the engine. Both Double 12 versions have a modified C8 Spyder frame with a longer wheelbase and a bigger fuel tank, 100 L instead of 75.
The C8 Preliator was officially announced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Only 50 vehicles will be produced. The car has a 4.2 L supercharged Audi V8 producing 525 hp (391 kW; 532 PS), resulting in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph). The car comes with a choice of a 6 speed manual Getrag or a 6 speed ZF automatic transmission. As with previous Spyker models, the car has typical aviation inspired design elements such as NACA styled air-inlets. Driver technology has been upgraded as well compared to previous models, with the C8 Preliator gaining a heads-up display and bluetooth connectivity for phones.
