Spyker Previews B6 Venator Concept


Spyker is hoping to get back on its feet after the Saab debacle with its new B6 Venator Concept.

Dutch boutique sportscar builder Spyker previously announced it would debut a new concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, opening later this week. A teaser image was previously revealed but it was only a silhouette shot that showed the outline of the car. But now a solitary image of the finished product has turned up on the company's Facebook page, giving us our first proper look at the car that could put Spyker back on track in its post-Saab era... and stick it to Porsche in the process.

What you’re looking at is the B6 Venator Concept. Speculated to be based on the Lotus Evora, the B6 is expected to slot in size-wise between the Porsche Boxster and 911. Mounted in the middle of an aluminum chassis with carbon-fiber bodywork is said to be a V6 with 375 horsepower, paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox. With 3,080 lbs of curb weight, the B6 concept would have a power-to-weight ratio of 8.21 pounds per horsepower - slightly better than a base 911 Carrera, but not as potent as a Cayman S. Commenting on its potential target in the marketplace, however, Spyker CEO Victor Muller stated that "anybody who says they’re going to build a Porsche killer is crazy."
