• 2011 Spyker C8 Laviolette Special Edition for China

It is impossible not to notice that more and more companies are developing special editions for the Chinese market. And if Lamborghini has the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce China Limited Edition, then it seems Spyker is welcome to bring the C8 Laviolette Special Edition for China to the Shanghai Auto Show. The company is already accepting orders and have announced a price of 4.8 million yuan, or about $735,000 at the current exchange rates.

The Spyker C8 Laviolette Special Edition for China will feature an orange body combined with a red, white, and blue flag decoration. The vehicle’s body and external parts, such as mirrors, beautiful inlets, and wheels, are all constructed from the best aluminum material.

Now that those minor aesthetic features have been taken care, we move on to the most impressive feature of this special edition: the 4.2-liter V8 engine. This engine has been tuned to deliver a total of 500 HP, up from the usual 400 HP. It is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

This C8 really looks so extraordinary with its platform and exterior styling! I also love the thought that they are more looks like a twin vehicle! smiley No wonder, if why it is too expensive.

Are they brothers? They only differ with the looks. However, the car can deliver a very impressive performance. Even minor aspects of the car are quite good too. Well, Chinese community is very lucky to have this car.

I can’t believe that this is the product of Spyker! I have heard that they bought the Saab. I think I will not be shocked if one day I could see the Saab cars looks like this.

I like the black and purple one much better. The orange with racing stripes are a tad too common nowadays. Too bad these babies are only China exclusive.

I want to puke on this car. I really hate the design of this car. I really don’t get if they are imitating a insect or what.

Wow, that one is a rather impressive tune up for the C8. Now I am really wondering which company would release another special edition car for the Chinese market.
