North-American Debut For The Koenigsegg Propelled Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder At The New York International Auto Show  New York, United States, 13 April 2017 – Spyker have returned to the New York International Automobile Show with the C8 Preliator Spyder featuring its most significant technological advancement since the inception of the Dutch creator of hand-built super sports cars in 2000. Spyker Founder and CEO Victor R. Muller announced at the Geneva International Motor Show last month, that Spyker has signed an Engine Supply Agreement with Christian von Koenigsegg, Founder and CEO of Koenigsegg Automotive AB ('Koenigsegg') from Angelholm, Sweden. Both the Spyker C8 Preliator as well as its Spyder version, making its North American debut at the New York International Automobile Show today and on display with Manhattan Motorcars, will be propelled by the new V8 engine.

Victor R. Muller, Spyker's Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said: 'Spyker is delighted to be back at the New York International Automobile Show to unveil the new Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder in one of its most important markets, New York. Historically Spyker has sold half of its production to the United States of America of which a very large number of cars were sold in this state through Spyker's first dealer in the USA, Manhattan Motorcars'.

The normally-aspirated, dry-sump 5-litre V8 engine boasts 600 hp and 600 NM of torque. Koenigsegg has developed this engine specifically to meet Spyker's needs and the Koenigsegg V8 will be installed in every Spyker C8 Preliator, both the Coupe, which was launched in March 2016, and the new Spyder, and replace the Audi V8 powertrain as from car one. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

Spyker translated its timeless aviation inspired design to the ultimate convertible, culminating in the Preliator Spyder. The design reflects the progress made with the Preliator from concept towards a production car. The Spyder, in Ascot Bronze, on display at the New York International Auto Show features an automatic soft top and a saddle Litano leather interior with honeycomb contrasted stitching.

Spyker's production of the C8 Preliator Spyder will be limited to 100 units only

Victor R. Muller, Spyker's Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said on the occasion: 'This is our single most important advancement in technology since I founded Spyker in 2000. I have always admired the amazing technologies developed by Christian von Koenigsegg and his dedicated team creating one of the most sophisticated cars and engines on the planet, and I am convinced our Spyker C8 Preliator clients will tremendously enjoy the huge performance leap.

The 600 horsepower V8 engine with manual gearbox, ticks all the boxes of the Spyker brand; it's Bold, Pure, and Engaging but foremost hyper-exclusive hence a perfect match to the Spyker C8 Preliator coupe as well as the Spyder we unveil this morning. In fact, this is the only 600 horsepower series produced sports car available with a manual gearbox on the market today. Although our peers believe the manual is virtually dead, and many have vowed we would never see them again, our discerning clients have clearly spoken out in favour of the manual: the Koenigsegg powered Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder will provide an engaging purist driving experience second to none tantalising all senses. The howling sound of this normally aspirated engine will be unmistakable and thrilling'.
