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.
