Spyker To End C8 Aileron Production With Three Limited Edition Models 4

Spyker is preparing to say goodbye to the C8 Aileron by announcing plans to build three limited edition models called the LM85.

Named after the C8 Laviolette LM85, the C8 Aileron LM85s will draw inspiration from the company’s race cars and feature riveted aluminum bodywork, wider wheel arches and air intakes that are made from solid billet aluminum.

Each model will sport a unique livery from that pays tribute to the Spyker Squadron. The first car will have a Jet Black exterior with Crimson Red accents, while the second car will have a Crimson Red exterior with Jet Black accents. The third and final car will have a Jet Black paint job with golden flourishes.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as Spyker says the cars will have custom leather seats that mimic the exterior body colors. Drivers will also find Chronoswiss gauges, a turned aluminum dashboard, and an exposed gearshift.

All three of the cars will be equipped with supercharged 4.2-liter V8 engine that produces 525 PS (386 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph).

According to Spyker CEO Victor Muller, “Every Spyker we ever built is unique and exclusive, but the last three Spyker C8 Aileron’s that we will build truly demonstrate the level of bespoke craftsmanship that the Spyker brand is all about. It is a dignified departure of the Audi powered Aileron’s and a worthy step toward the third generation Spykers, the Spyker C8 Preliator.”

Should You Consider An Oddball Like Spyker’s C8 Spyder? 2
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Spyker, Spyker Videos, video on 12 2nd, 2017


Introduced way back in 2008, the Spyker C8 Spyder remains an intriguing sports car.

Created by Dutch automaker Spyker Cars, the C8 Spyder never sold in large numbers and failed to make a significant mark on the industry like the Pagani Zonda, for example, did.

Of course, the C8 Spyder was much cheaper than any Pagani, but it’s hard not to compare the two, particularly when it comes to their interiors. Both the C8 and Zonda feature incredibly bespoke components and use aluminum in abundance. As Doug DeMuro recently discovered in a test of the C8, it is the sports car’s interior that makes it truly extraordinary.

Rather than slapping some carbon fiber across the cabin, Spyker instead opted for a combination of lush leather and polished aluminum. Without a doubt the coolest aluminum component of the C8 Spyder is the shifter, which includes an exposed shifting linkage and makes gated shifters seem somewhat bland.

In base specification, the C8 Spyder features an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8 engine delivering 394 hp, while the latest version, the C8 Preliator, uses a Koenigsegg-sourced V8.

The mainstream, mass-market automakers that drive the industry have long since broken beyond the borders of the countries in which they're based.

That Toyota you're driving, for instance, was probably made in America, not in Japan. The Fiat 500 may be quintessentially Italian, but it's made in Poland and Mexico. And despite its all-American image, the Jeep Renegade is made in Italy.
