Autocar had the chance to get behind the wheel of the Spyker C8 Aileron supercar. The video gives a great look to both the inside and the outside of the C8 Aileron giving us the opportunity to see what a popular and expensive designer added to the design detail of this automobile. What did they think about the car? How much cooler do things sound with an accent? Watch the video and find out!

The Spyker C8 Aileron is powered by an Audi 4.2 Liter V8 that produces 400HP and is available with the choice of two different transmissions. It accelerates from 0 to 60MPH in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187MPH.

The interior gets a full-leather treatment by Dutch Royal Tanneries Hulshof, and a turned aluminum dashboard with Chronoswiss dials is an option.

Quick steering and a heavy brake pedal are the first things we noticed. Unlike Spyker’s smaller cars, the Aileron gets power-assist for the steering and brakes.

Another landmark achievement in design, brought to us by the Dutch. It is a shame, how exquisite design today is being forfeited in favour of gaudy "improvements" on already uninspired molds. Whatever sells, right?
