Spyker-Teaser

Remember the Spyker B6 Venator Concept from the Geneva show earlier this year? Spyker, most popularly known as the (now former) owner of Saab, will reveal a convertible version of that concept car at this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance show in California.

The fixed-top B6 Venator, billed as “a unique alternative in the high luxury sports sector,” is a compact, two-door mid-engine sports car with lots of aviation-inspired elements. “Venator” is Latin for “Hunter” – a nod back to Spyker’s Hunter fighter plane of the early 20th century. The Porsche 911 rival was designed by Spyker CEO Victor R. Muller.

With an all carbon fibre body and all aluminium platform, the Venator coupe weighs less than 1,400 kg. It will be powered by a rear-mid mounted V6 engine with “375+ bhp” and power will go to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. Should be the same case for the Spyder.

Back in March, Spyker said that production will begin in early 2014 for key markets including Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and India, followed by the US in autumn 2014.
