The new car's dry-sumped, naturally-aspirated 5.0-litre engine replaces the 4.2-litre Audi unit first used in the C8 coupé last year. It produces 443lb ft of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The 2016 C8 Preliator coupé weighed 1305kg and could accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.7sec, before reaching a 201mph top speed. While the larger unit of Spyker's 2017 model could increase that weight figure, it's added potency will likely improve performance for both the coupé and Spyder, although this is yet to be confirmed.
Spyker's latest model get sbrushed aluminum surrounds, switches and trim in its cabin, with exposed linkages and hand-stitched leather. The Spyder gets an electronic folding soft top.
Victor Muller, Spyker CEO, said in Geneva "This is our single most important advancement in technology since I founded Spyker in 2000. I have always admired the amazing technologies developed by Christian von Koenigsegg and his dedicated team creating one of the most sophisticated cars and engines on the planet, and I am convinced our Spyker C8 Preliator clients will tremendously enjoy the huge performance leap."
