The Dutch super sports firm Spyker seems that you are tracing the flight after the slump in which he got by the failed acquisition of Saab. Everyone knew that the defunct Swedish firm could sink a company so small, but the ambition of its managers did the rest. Once he spent everything and Spyker accounts returned to its site, decided to launch on the market a year ago the Sports Coupe Preliator C8.
This car is one of the most exclusive in the world craft sports. However, in the House needed more models or variants to improve its economies of scale and at the same time to reduce their production costs. Therefore the firm has decided to release a few days that the Geneva Motor Show opens its doors to the first official photo (seen very little on it) which will be the version of the C8 Preliato Coupe cabrio.
The convertible version of the Spyker C8 Preliator should not undergo major changes to mechanical level. Therefore would block gasoline V8 configuration of 4.2 litres engine displacement and 525 HP. Audi provides this mechanic is and can be linked to two gearboxes, cutting six-speed manual or an automatic cutter manufactured by ZF with the same number of relationships.
Your body should be identical design front, rear and side. The main difference will lie in the absence of ceiling and the windshield frame. However, in the part that is not Spyker should apply a series of structural reinforcements which should improve resistance to torsion. In this case, the weight of the Spyker C8 Preliator Cabrio would be increased, although they should not be many more than the current 1,390 kilos now weighing the version Coupé.
We will wait to the Geneva Motor Show opens its doors to have more data on this unique vehicle.
