It's the family reunion and your rich cousin keeps making eyes at you. It's weird, sure, but then you find out that they've got a Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85 in their garage.


Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.


It's been a while since we've heard from the mad Dutchmen at Spyker. That's probably because the company blew all its cash by buying up Saab just as it died, entering and then quitting Formula One, and racing at Le Mans, too.

The LM85 commemorates all of those Le Mans races. We wouldn't call it a road-going version of the Spyker GT2 racer, but it's still got a 400 horsepower Audi V8 mounted in the middle, a six-speed manual, maybe the best interior put in a modern car, and some other track-pack goodies.

Would it be worth it to violate the laws of nature just to hoon this thing around when you have the chance?
