Spyker C8 Preliator
Spyker has a reputation for building some of the most stylish, unique sports cars on the road, although considering the company’s ongoing financial issues we were surprised to see an all-new model showcased in Geneva earlier this year. The C8 Preliator continues the aircraft theme of previous Spykers with taillights that mimic jet engine outlets, small winglets on the sides and 19-inch “Rotorblade” wheels inspired by turbine blades of a jet engine. Power comes from a mid-mounted V8 engine producing 525 horsepower; a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission are available. Thanks to a lightweight chassis, the C8 reaches 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and claims a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Spyker plans a limited run of just 50 C8 Preliators.
