So Spyker was all set up to have a bad-ass new engine for its C8 Aileron, a 6.2-liter LSA V-8 from General Motors. This is the same plant that you’ll find under the nose of a Corvette ZR-1 and Cadillac CTS-V . Now, Spyker is suing GM for $3 billion over its blocking Spyker from selling Saab to Youngman Lotus, thereby sending Spyker into bankruptcy. Yeah, that will end any relationship these two had.
So, with Spyker likely left with no engine supplier for the C8 Aileron, we need to take a look and at where exactly it can dig up some ponies to try and pull a profit. Let’s have a look at potential suitors and what they have to offer.
Before we start, we have to keep in mind a few rules here. Spyker can’t just run off and ask other boutique automakers, like Aston Martin and Jaguar, to borrow an engine for a car that will compete with them. It needs to find one from a supplier that just wants its name out there in a supercar.
