Aviation influence in Spyker’s latest concept
Earlier this year, Dutch sports car manufacturer Spyker revealed to the world their new convertible version of the totally stunning B6 Venator Concept car. Victor Muller hopes that this car (which is still officially a concept) will be more of a statement on behalf of Spyker; he hopes it will mark a resurgence of their brand. This car, when produced, will yield only 1,000 units; it’s meant to truly be an exclusive vehicle.
The Venator is a combination of Spyker’s aviation experience and a keen eye for design; some key aspects that are coming into play include a V-pattern mesh in the front grille, a jet-fighter-style cockpit, and LED rings for the tail lights. The tail lights are actually meant to mimic that of the afterburners on a modern jet fighter plane.
Under the hood
Underneath the stylish and innovative design, there is a 3.5-liter V-6, an engine that delivers 375 horsepower, 6-speed automatic, and rear wheel power. Because this is still in concept state, there’s much more than could come, making this already supercar even more powerful.
Production for this should start in 2014, with the first cars ready for the showroom in 2015. The United States should be receiving a decent amount of these as well.
