The 2017 Geneva Motor Show is currently hosting more than 900 brand-new models, concepts and exquisite prototypes which demonstrate that the future is closer than we think. However, the most important auto event of the year is also hosting a handful of startup companies also revealing their latest rides.
It is also the case of the Dutch company Spyker which has arrived in Geneva with its interesting concept called the C8 Preliator, built in collaboration with the now already famous Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg.
Speaking of the well-known Swedish supercar manufacturer, its founder Christian von Koenigsegg has vouched for the C8 Preliator`s exceptional design and impressive performance, stating in an interview in Geneva:
“I have known Victor and Spyker for way over a decade, and we obviously share the passion for handcrafted and bespoke automobiles. It gives us great pleasure to work with Spyker to design and produce an engine specifically for them that will suit the handcrafted, luxurious, and high-performance nature of all Spyker cars. In terms of performance, the introduction of our light, responsive, and powerful engine will transform the driving experience of the Preliator.”
Speaking of performance, the engine of the all-new Spyker C8 Preliator as well as the mechanical parts, are all suplied by Koenigsegg. Hence the impressive output of 447 kW and 600 Nm fo torque, all-squeezed from a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine. This also allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in jsut 3.6 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 322 km/h.
Besides the impressive performance, the Spyker C8 Preliator also features a semi-automatic removable roof with Litano leather uphostelry inside, orange rocker covers on the engine, new colour palate, high-performance suspension system from Lotus, and a few more.
