Spyker C8 Preliator Arrives in North America

spyker-c8-preliator-nyias-2
The Latest iteration of the Spyker C8, the Preliator is on display here in New York at the 2016 New York Auto Show. You may be thinking, didn’t Spyker go out of business? Yeah you wouldn’t be wrong but they resurfaced from bankruptcy with the help of an electric airplane company. That led many to believe that the next project from Spyker would be a full fledged electric vehicle of some sort but everyone was wrong. The C8 Preliator is not an electric vehicle, and in fact it still has the same Audi 4.2L V8 under the hood except this time around it has a supercharged strapped to it boosting output to just under 520 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque delivered to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual or automatic gear box.

The entire vehicle has been overhauled and improved compared to its predecessor. The all aluminium space frame has been redesigned and is 10% stiffer, the wheelbase has been increased providing a more stable ride and the interior has been revamped.

The Preliator name, which means fighter or warrior in latin not only pays tribute to their aviation heritage (fighter jets) but symbolizes the rocky past couple of years in which Spyker has fought and won many battles only to come out stronger than ever.

The C8 Preliator will be limited to 50 units and will begin production once the remaining units of its predecessor, the C8 Aileron are complete.
