Spyker to reveal new C8 Preliator in Geneva
Though it has showcased a number of concepts and prototypes over the years – including the D12 crossover, C12 Zagato, and the smaller B6 Venator – Spyker has only ever actually offered one model for sale, and that's the C8. Various versions of the C8 have surfaced over the past sixteen years since its debut, with the most recent being the C8 Aileron. But having debuted back in 2008, even that version is growing quite long in the proverbial tooth. This new model, then, looks poised to bring it up to speed.
Just what that will entail, we can't be sure at this point. The name Preliator means "warrior" in Latin - the same language as its motto. That doesn't tell us much about the vehicle's substance, but given that the company was rescued by an electric aircraft company, we wouldn't be surprised to see it to pack some manner of electrified powertrain. Whether it will be enough to propel Spyker out of its post-Saab stupor and into solvency remains to be seen, but we're looking forward to seeing the new model at the Swiss expo in a few weeks.
