Top Speed:187 mph
Spyker unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show the C8 Aileron its second generation C-line sports car. The C8 Aileron will come with both a manual as well as an automatic gearbox. The C8 Aileron will be priced at €199.990,00 for the manual version and €207.990,00 for the automatic version.
The Aileron will continue to use the Audi 4.2 litre V8 that delivers 400 hp and a peak torque of 480 Nm. This state-of-the-art 5 valve 4 cam engine is now mated to a 6 speed Getrag manual or a 6 speed automatic ZF gearbox. This is the first time a Spyker is available with such an automatic gearbox as standard equipment. The C8 Aileron can hit a top speed of 187 mph.
With the increased wheelbase (10cm / 4.5 inches) the doors grew by the same length allowing for more comfortable in- and egress. The first generation cars have split side windows which were not optimal in terms of sealing (wind noise and water management). The Aileron has single pane side glass that drops when the door is opened and closed, creating improved comfort level. The rear diffuser was redesigned for improved functionality. The redesigned rear lights are LED units. The outside mirrors were redesigned and the cone is mounted on two turbine fan blades, standard in body colour (but available in polished aluminum as an option).
