Production version of the Dutch supercar hits the streets for the first time
3 July 2009

The first production Spyker C8 Aileron has been spotted on European roads.

The C8 Aileron was first seen as a concept at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008 and as a production model at the same show this year. This is the first time we have seen the production model on European roads.

The Dutch supercar is powered by a 4.2-litre Audi V8 engine, which also appears in the Audi R8. It produces 400bhp and 354lb ft or torque, while 0-62secs takes 4.5secs and it can reach 187mph.

Its all-aluminium spaceframe helps keep weight down to 1425kg. It also has an aluminium rear diffuser. Spyker say its turbine air inlets are a nod to the jet-engined aviation era, while LEDs are used in the front and rear headlights.

Inside, there are Sparco sports seats, a full leather interior and brushed aluminium trim.

Prices start at around £160,000 and the Spyker C8 Aileron is expected to go on sale next year.
