The LM85 has been designed in the spirit of our Spyker Squadron GT2 (LMES) race cars and sports a GT2 inspired livery. The LM85 is named after the starting number of our GT2 cars we have had at Le Mans since 2002.
The LM85 specification list is exhaustive with exclusive elements incorporated. All 24 LM85 owners are special guest during the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 2009.
The LM85 is an advanced mid-engine, two-seat sports car. It is characterized by a lightweight all aluminium body construction and an uncompromising engineering package. The powertrain of the LM85 is the all aluminium Audi 4.2 Litre V8 engine producing 400 bhp. This is paired to a manual six-speed Getrag gearbox, driving the rear wheels with a Drexler limited slip differential. The use of aluminium parts and other lightweight materials results in an impressive power-to-weight ratio and underlines the GT2 racing heritage of the LM85.
Based on the Spyker C8 Laviolette GT2R, the racing characterisitics of the LM85 are numerous, such as the structural aluminium chassis, GT2 livery (Burnt Almond Orange with Gun Metal 'S' logo), side mirrors in Gun Metal, a carbon fibre rear spoiler, and GT2 windscreen streamer. Behind the black powder coated alloy wheels, black AP Racing 6 piston brake calipers with AP Racing logo appear.
Manual 6 Speed Gearbox without Electronic Intervention, Electrically Operated Single-Hinge Tilting Doors, Wide Body Specification, Spyker Logo on Head Rests, Turned Aluminum Dashboard, Quilted Connolly Leather, Xenon Headlights, and 19 inch Aeroblade Magnesium Wheels with a Silver Finish.
All aluminum Audi V8 engine (type S8) with 90-degree block angle. Natural aspiration through eight injection throttle bodies. Four overhead camshafts and five valves per cylinder. Stainless steel 4-into-1 high performance exhausts on either side of the engine.

From WikipediaSpyker F1 Team was a Formula One team that competed in the 2007 Formula One World Championship, and was created by Spyker Cars after their buyout of the short-lived Midland F1 team. The change to the Spyker name was accompanied by a switch in racing livery from the red and white previously used by Midland, to an orange and silver scheme—already seen on the Spyker Spyder GT2-R—orange being the national colour and the auto racing colour of the Netherlands.
