Spyker C8 Aileron Spotted Testing Upgraded Body, "Dutchiness"

We first saw the concept of the Spyker C8 Aileron at Geneva this year, but that version was hard-topped and had a funky green paint job. Autogespot (which has a creepy name in our opinion) has dug up a nice set of spy photos on the Audi-engined, supposedly 400-500 HP (big range huh?) mule version of the supercar… » 5/21/08 2:20pm 5/21/08 2:20pm

V8-Powered Pagani Zonda In Action?

We dig the Pagani Zonda. It doesn't just have beautifully crafted details and fantastic style, it's got all the speed and power to back it up.

Our God is an Unfair God: Paris Hilton to Drive a Spyker C8 Spyder in…

Anybody out there got any new ways to make fun of Paris? We're running low. Though if you watch the video taken by the lovable scamps at TMZ you will notice she employs a 300-pound man to make sure she doesn't spill her latte on her Bentley's soft top. Twit. Anyhow, the good folks at the Bullrun have apparently gifted… » 4/27/07 2:23pm 4/27/07 2:23pm

Spyker And Ferrari Making With the Make-Outs?

So while the initial Spyker cars have been motivated by Audi powertrains, the latest rumor is that Ferrari is set to power their F1 cars. What's more, there're whispers to the effect (and we haven't talked to anyone from Spyker about this) that the outr Peking-to-Paris SUV may be powered by a Ferrari V12, rather than… » 9/11/06 12:36am 9/11/06 12:36am

2006 Concours d'Elegance Meadow Brook: Spyked Drinks And The Spyker C8


The Bugatti Veyron we saw yesterday at Meadow Brook's Concours d'Elegance wasn't the only piece of mettal hotness at the show. We spotted this C8 Spyker sitting pretty in the corral next to it...and oh, how we wanted to ride that piece of Audi W12-engined goodness. Oh, to feel the power between our legs...we can't… » 8/07/06 12:31pm 8/07/06 12:31pm
