At last year's Geneva Motor Show we got our first glimpse of the Spyker C8 Aileron, the stretched and stiffened coupe that could replace the C8 Laviolette later this year. In keeping with its promise to deliver a production version of the C8 Aileron in 2009, Spkyer has released a teaser of its newest hypercar ahead of its reveal in Geneva next month.

There's no doubt that the stylistic insanity of the concept will make its way to the production model, along with the Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8, putting out 400 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. A choice of either a Getrag six-speed manual or ZF auto-box will deliver power to the rear wheels, and with a curb weight of just over 3,100 pounds, the Aileron will hit 60 in 4.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 187 mph.

Spyker's trademark interior trinkets, including its turned aluminum dash, will find their way inside, along with a Kharma stereo with GPS, Bluetooth integration and MP3 compatibility. Production is expected to begin in May, with sales starting in early summer, and expect a convertible variant to bow next year.

      I'd sell my soul for a Spyker Spyder. Most beautiful car made today.

      They have a reputation to uphold as coach builders, the original Spyker company build the golden coach the Dutch queen still uses.

      Ugh those intake ports are a bit too much.

      A kit-car designed by a 6-year-old who took Maserati Spyder and glued pipe pieces all over it for his school project. No history, no style, no legacy, no innovation.

        This car looks way better than the Maserati Spyder and not at all like a kit car. Although the original entity went bust, the Spyker name dates back to 1880. As far as no innovation, in 1903 Spyker was the first automobile manufacturer to make a single engined car with four wheel drive.

      "...Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8, putting out 400 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque."

      Normally, I'd say a car that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars would need a lot more power than that, but for this car, as long as it makes a good noise (with that engine it should), I really don't care.

        I'm with you, Spyker excels in coach building, not necessarily tuning, so long as their interiors continue to look and feel as they do, and their exteriors continue to be as quirky, I'll over look the power to weight. I don’t know of any other carmaker with their balance of sporty driving/power and beyond Bentley levels of interior design and refinement. They're truly remarkable cars, and the attention to detail is unrivaled, even by say pagani (though the zondas are a lot more drive focused).

      It look amazing

      the back looks like a ferrari on drugs
      the front end looks like an aston martin mixed with the maserati granturismo
      all in all, its nice

      i want one, now all i need is a few hundred thousand dollars during these troubled economic times
