Spyker

Always wanted a Spyker C8 Aileron but wanted it to be a drop top? The boys at Spyker have probably heard your wishes – that’s why they’ve just introduced the new Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder. In the endine bay is the same 4.2 litre Audi V8 in the roofed version producing 400 horsepower and 480Nm of torque at 3,400rpm. Now that’s some massively aggressive tuning, as the standard Audi engine only puts out about 440Nm as standard, which already exceeds the magical 100Nm per litre of displacement figures thanks to the FSI direct injection. Looking at the numbers this is likely based on the version of the 4.2 V8 found in the Audi Q7 instead of the high-revving version in the Audi RS4 and Audi R8. This engine can be mated to either a Getrag 6-speed manual or a ZF 6-speed automatic. More photos available after the jump.
