2012 Spyker C8 Aileron GT

Spyker is bringing the production ready C8 Aileron to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, but they will also be presenting the new Aileron GT - a new race car that will replace the current C8 Laviolette GT2R racer in the 2012 motorsport season. The new model will be developed by Spyker Squadron’s expanded engineering team at its Zeewolde headquarters in conjunction with its long-standing technical partners. According to Spyker, various racing teams are already interested in purchasing the racer.

Spyker Squadron Managing Director, Peter Van Erp, said: "We are taking a racing sabbatical this year to concentrate our resources on developing a new GT racer based on Spyker’s new C8 Aileron supercar, instead of continuing to spend money on a car at the end of its development cycle. For the long term future of Spyker Squadron, and for its role in the promotion and technical development of Spyker road cars, it’s a positive and strategically important step.

"Ultimately, our fans can look forward to a very exciting long term future following Spyker in top-flight endurance racing, with both the Spyker Squadron and customer racing teams fielding C8 Aileron GT cars. And as a result, Spyker will become an even more prominent and successful name in endurance motorsport around the world in 2012 and beyond."

Decent? I don’t think so but just like you, I’m also so impressed with this race car, and its hood is absolutely awesome with it! However, I hope that they would justify the aggressive looks of it by using an impressive engine.

Batistta is being sarcastic. HAHA! By the way, the flat hood does not appeal on me, and it makes me wonder why they are a lot of designs with this one. The competition and the performance is not yet revealed.

Hey LuckySam! You mean to say, you already ride with this car. Well, you are so LUCKY! By the way, I thought it can only be seen on race tracks. I never thought that it can also be used to pick-up a person. smiley

Whatever everybody says about the spyker, I can tell you its awsome. My nephew who works in the head office in zeewolde came to pick me up for a ride with the newest C8 Aileron. I can tell you boys I never drove a car that amazing. Also the interior is beautifull.

Well, I guess you’re right. I bet the performance of this car would be amazing. However, I wonder if this concept would be made for exclusivity?However, for this car I bet it would be better if we wait its production version.

Aside from an awesome performance of the car, its kind of amazing on how the driver have an endurance to keep going and finish the whole race!Well, the look of the car doesn’t matter on the race track for its the performance is the most important.

Oh no! I think the front is kind of hideous. Well, what should i expect from this car. racing car are built with an impressive speed but not with the design.

This one is definitely going to be one of those cars that I have always dreamed of running down the road. This will definitely be a great driving experience for those who are lucky .

300 grand for this car? I think that this one is a bit too pricey. There are actually a lot of other cars in this price range that have better performance than this one.

Hey, they’re actually releasing the production ready version of the C8? Now this would surely be quite an interesting thing to see. I wonder what features would be included here.

The Spyker C8 Aileron is priced at the equivalent of $312,390 for the manual-transmission model and $324,750 for the model with automatic transmission. But don’t worry there’s a lot of much better car out in the market.

if I’m not mistaken i think the architecture of the C8 was first seen on original C8 Spyder in 2000? the specs where so amazing and about the interior..well, no comment..hehe
