2010 Spyker C8 Aileron - Click above for image gallery

Boutique Dutch carmaker Spyker unveiled its elongated and streamlined C8 Aileron back in March in Geneva, and we saw its North American debut in New York a month later. Those were show car versions of the upcoming production model based on the concept car we had seen in Geneva and Pebble Beach the year before. We've seen the imposing coupes from every possible angle, inside and out. They are finely crafted, uniquely engineered, rolling works of art, like a plutocrat's timepiece on wheels. What we haven't seen is a production-spec Aileron in red.

A new batch of photos has just begun circulating out onto the 'net, showing a stunning red Aileron driving around Europe. A reliable source tells us this is the first pre-production car to hit the streets, so it is only a matter of time before we see one of these 400 horsepower, Audi 4.2-liter V8-powered rocketships in private hands.

      Too many...circles...

        Damn guys, do your research.

        - The scoop on the roof is direct air intake for the engine (Functional).
        - The scoops on side towards the top are to circulate air in the engine compartment (Functional)
        - The scoops below that are brake cooling ducts (Functional)
        - Event the scoops the fog lights are suspended in circulate air AROUND the fog lights to the front brakes (again, Functional)

        C'mon - form follows function???

        Yeah, but they could at least form a vent (a la F430/ Evora.) These kind of look like cheap aftermarket intakes.

        @ Toronto


        Is it a bad thing?
        • 5 Years Ago
        For a 75 cent hot wheel, no. For a $200,000 supercar, especially when it serves no purpose, yes, it really is.

        I see that the top scoop is used as an extra light in the Le Mans car. That should indicate how much usefulness it has on the street car.

        Save the scoops, this car has always looked terrific.

      An astonishing car; probably the most interesting looking car on the market.

      But the pictures suck - not properly resized and hence jagged.. Waiting for better ones.

      not much of a fan of the name, but @ TORONTO... this bad boy does look like it could shoot missles..

      :D

      Plus, i love the 4.2 Liter Audi V8....

      lol I would hate to have to clean the grille on that thing after a drive through the country on a warm day...

      "Scoops = power/performance? No."

      You do know the engine needs air to add to the gasoline for combustion as well as to keep cool, right?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Still hideous...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Scoops = Rocket Launchers. Check.

      Seriously, the scoops, whatever function, look retarded.
      • 5 Years Ago
      They are if the scoops are functional... Unlike most companies.
      • 5 Years Ago
      What they need are pics of the inside. What Spyker has always done best is the interior. Their shift colums are a work of art and the leather is beyond anything you have ever seen.

        Oops.

        Stupid reply/commenting system...that was meant for jinsei888.

      they must not be very proud of the rear end of the car... not one shot of it, and that's the view i'd be seing the most if i ever saw one on the road...
      • 5 Years Ago
      It looks like a badly done fake James Bond Aston Martin.
