Spyker readies C8 Preliator for the Geneva motor show

The Spyker C8 Preliator has been teased ahead of the Geneva motor show. 

Spyker made the announcement on its official website, with the teaser image depicting the outline of the car and the shapes of a few key features with a series of wispy grey highlights. 

The C8 badge has not been used on a Spyker car since the C8 Aileron, which was revealed at the 2008 Geneva motor show. Unlike its namesake, however, Spyker's recent teaming up with US electric aircraft company Volta Volare following a period of financial flux means that the C8 Preliator will more than likely be a fully electric car. 

The Dutch supercar manufacturer is not releasing any more information about the C8 Preliator until after the car's official debut, so this is yet to be confirmed. 

Spyker's period of uncertainty involved a bankruptcy ruling and its subsequent overturning, before the firm merged with Volta Volare. The C8 Preliator will be the first car, concept or otherwise, that Spyker has revealed since the B6 Venator from 2013. 

Our Verdict

Spyker C8
Power is provided by a Audi V8 that can be specified to produce up to 600bhp

There's no mistaking the Spyker C8 supercar for something else. Its styling is wild and its interior is sublime
