The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder concept has made its UK debut today in London.

For the first time, British enthusiasts of performance motoring will be able to lay their eyes on one of the most exclusive cars in the world.

The 400 hp 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 sports car 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 Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder features 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 (England) until Sunday 7th November.

Spyker is represented in the UK by Bob Forstner Group in London and Broughtons in Berkshire.
