| |

The Dutch sports car maker announced its presence on the upcoming New York Auto Show with their new model.

Spyker will showcase the C8 Preliator, a hand-built mid-engined 525hp sports car limited to just 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 new Spyker C8 Preliator uses an all-aluminum space frame while the suspension was tuned by Lotus. Power comes from an Audi 4.2-litre V8 which in this case has been supercharged for 525hp. Customers will be able to choose between a six-speed manual and a ZF six-speed automatic gearbox.
