The Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder is a completely new two-door mid-engine sports car made by Spykercars. It is a pure and the most logical step forward with many design and technology step ups. This is one of those aviation-inspired and designed sports cars.
Giving the fact this super car is designed to be brutally aerodynamic, it looks like a true future car. It has a long wheelbase, to add to the stability and the curvature of the car body itself needs to be glorified. The craftmanship is insanely good and there are not many non-perfect details on the exterior design. The car has to be perfect so the performance can be on the bare top of the list. There are even some aircraft details on the exterior design such as 3D LED lights and the iris-type propelling nozzle of a jet engine from a modern fighter aircraft. The grille is taken from the original design of the Spyker 1903 which had only 60 horsepower. There are some air inlets on both sides of the car, because it needs to be cooled the proper way.
The rear diffuser is designed to push the car down to be more precise controling it. The Spyker C8 Preliator has many carbon body details and panels are made from carbon. Overall, the design of the Spyker C8 Preliator is timeless. The Spyker C8 Preliator is long 4628 mm and wide 1953 mm, with the wheelbase of 2725 mm. It weights about 1390 kg.
Not less than the exterior, the interior itself is a masterpiece. Never before seen interior design is right here, in this car. The Spyker C8 Preliator was made with authentic materials and there is one more great thing about it – there is no plastic inside the car. At least the things you can touch. Everything is leather and high quality fabrics. No plastic. Nice one!
The ignition has to be triggered by a switch and there is a start button to start the Spyker C8 Preliator. Just awesome! The gear stick is amazingly different than in any other vehicle on our roads. You need to see it yourself to believe me… There is even a multifunctional head-up display with GPS navigation which is mounted right above the dashboard. They have thought of everything this time!
