Hand built Spyker to star at the 2016 New York auto show


SPYKERSpyker, a creator of meticulously hand-built sports cars since 2000, will return to the 2016 New York International Automobile Show

joining a list of other exotic supercars on display such as the Koenigsegg One:1 and the Koenigsegg Regera.

The third-generation Spyker C8 Preliator will make its North American debut at the New York Auto Show on Thursday, March 24. Spyker will produce a mere 50 units worldwide.

“We are delighted to be back at the New York International Automobile Show to unveil the new Spyker C8 Preliator in one of our most important markets,” said Victor R. Muller, Spyker’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Historically, Spyker has sold half of its production in the US, with a very large number of cars sold through the company’s first US dealer, Manhattan Motor Cars”.

The “Preliator” name, which means “fighter” or “warrior” in Latin, pays tribute to the company’s aviation heritage: “Fighters” are warplanes as made by Spyker between 1914 and 1918. But even more so, “Preliator” symbolizes the uphill battles Spyker faced and won in the past couple of years. By mounting a supercharger to the Audi V8 engine, Spyker has improved the performance of the C8 Preliator significantly as compared to its predecessor.

The Spyker C8 Preliator is made for discerning owners who appreciate the attention to detail and bespoke features that Spyker has offered them for over a decade and a half now.
