That nonsense with Saab is now over, and Spyker can build real sports cars like the Venator Spyder.
Spyker is finally back in the business of building its offbeat yet stylish sports cars after that whole Saab fiasco. Although it’s still a concept, the Spyker B6 Venator Spyder is pretty close to the real deal, which Spyker claims will go into production later in 2014. Based off the B6 Venator coupe, the Spyder variant retains the mid-mounted 375 horsepower V6 and is paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The interior is also carried-over from the coupe, but that’s not a bad thing at all.
As typical with anything from Spyker, the dash is covered in aluminum and other familiar brand styling cues, such as the exposed gear mechanism. Yes, the styling is supposed to mimic aircraft design. The exterior is composed of a carbon fiber body that sits on an aluminum platform. Along with LED lights, the car rides on 19" alloys that are styled to resemble turbofans from a jet engine. Aimed to take on the Porsche 911 and even the Lotus Evora, pricing should start at around $150,000.
