SPYKER C8 LAVIOLETTE The Spyker C8 Spyder was the first modern Spyker unveiled after Victor Muller reintroduced the brand in 2000. Unveiled at the Birmingham Motor Show in 2000, the stunning C8 Spyder was the highly successful first realisation of Mullers vision of a company producing what no other automotive brand does: a beautiful supercar of utmost quality and craftsmanship with the performance to match its exquisite uncompromised interior and stunning exterior design. And the C8 Spyder sports direct references to the aviation heritage of the first trailblazing Spyker company of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At its launch it represented the start of an incredible journey and it remains an iconic supercar. The Spyker C8 Laviolette fixed head coupe soon followed the C8 Spyder. Launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show in February 2001 and technically similar to the C8 Spyder, the C8 Laviolette is an elegant car which offers all the excitement of driving in a high power sports coupe its glass canopy reminiscent of a modern jet fighter. At the heart of the styling of the C8 is an explicit recognition of Spykers aviation heritage. This is exhibited through the countless design cues paying homage to early propeller aircraft, such as the exterior side-mounted polished aluminium air intake scoops behind the doors and, inside, the propeller rotor dash air vents. Further bold styling statements include the wing mirrors, which are mounted within dramatic single-piece sculpted polished aluminium arms which extend gracefully from the top of the forward edge of the door. The electric/hydraulic-lift scissor doors provide a sense of high drama every time the driver and passenger enter and exit the cabin. The Laviolette name pays tribute to Joseph Valentin Laviolette, the Belgian engineer who was responsible for the development of the first Spyker models in the early years of the 20th century, including the spectacular Spyker 60HP, the worlds first six-cylinder four-wheel drive car. Power for the C8 Spyder and C8 Laviolette models is provided by a naturally aspirated 4.2- litre Audi petrol engine, which is also fitted in Spykers new flagship C8 Aileron. This highly responsive 90-degree V8 power unit generates 400 ps at 6,800 rpm and an immense wave of torque with 480 Nm at just 3,500 rpm. Drive to the rear wheels is transferred through a manual six-speed Getrag gearbox. With excellent power-to-weight ratios, both the C8 Spyder and C8 Laviolet
