This handcrafted vehicle is made out of the material of choice, aluminum. This metal requires highly skilled professionals to get the best out of it, but it gives unparalleled results. Everything on this vehicle is handcrafted, including the wing mirrors, the beautiful air intakes and even the wheels.
The Ultra-stiff space frame is also manufactured from aluminum sheet and extrusions. The open top reveals windows that don't have any header rails, creating an unobstructed view, causing a sensational open air feeling.
The Spyker's personality is further enhanced by a number of unusual and eye catching interior features. Reflecting Spyker's aviation heritage, the design of the instrumentation is reminiscent of those found in airplanes. The uniqueness of the interior gives one the feeling that they're not really driving the vehicle, but actually wearing it, kind of like a fine suit. It's not about getting from point A to point B as fast as possible, but to truly enjoy the ride and come to appreciate what automotive engineering is all about.
The All Aluminum Audi 4.2 Liter V8 Engine (out of the S8 model) gives the vehicle about 400HP worth of power. In a vehicle that weighs about 2800 lbs, expect some pavement wrinkling acceleration out of this vehicle. The transmission is a 6-speed Manual mounted to a unique looking stick shift that has an exposed shift linkage. All of that power is transferred to the rear wheels and since the engine is in the rear, the handling is uncompromised.
