Spyker Considers American Power

Motor Authority reports that troubled Dutch supercar manufacturer Spyker could be considering a switch to American powerplants. The company currently sources its V8 from Audi and was planning to use VW's 6.0 W12 for its forthcoming D12 super SUV. Due to the weak dollar, the LS7 V8 and new 600bhp Viper engine must look incredibly attractive. The company's new CEO, Victor Muller is also reportedly dissatisfied with the Audi V8's relatively low power output.
