Victor Muller and the Spyker C8 Preliator

He’s back! It was so good to see Victor Muller standing in the middle of the Lodge at Pebble Beach during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Muller goes through the aviation history of the Spyker, and what Preliator means (even though his Son Oliver told me it meant something different). The engine is 5-liter, 610 horsepower, 210 miles per hour.

Only fifty will be produced at a starting price of $355,000. Most of them have already been sold, so enjoy the video. If you want to buy one there are thirteen Spyker dealers. Call now. Get the Preliator jet grey color in the video. Just beautiful.

For the tenacious, no road is impossible.

The 5-liter is a naturally aspirated Koenigsegg 5.0-liter V8 rated at 600 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.

EVOLUTION OF A CLASSIC

The Spyker C8 Preliator marks the next step in Spyker Cars’ evolution. The 2-door mid-engine sports car will offer the discerning driver of the highest standards a new choice, delivering a rare combination of heritage, design, craftsmanship, performance, and exclusivity.

Highly detailed design, bespoke materials, and aviation-inspired elements are a core part of the Spyker DNA. Spyker’s third-generation sports car features design cues from jet propulsion aircraft, highlighting the turbine blade, NACA duct air inlets and little wings, ailerons, to improve the car’s aerodynamic performance.

With sleek aerodynamics, along GT-wheelbase, luxurious and spacious cabin, and world-class drivetrain, the new C8 Preliator has broadened the appeal of the Spyker brand while maintaining the marque’s exclusivity.

THE PRELIATOR AT FIRST SIGHT

The Spyker C8 Preliator is the epitome of our unrivaled craftsmanship, its contemporary design the ultimate translation of our aviation heritage to a “road jet”, a plane without wings.
