With a weight of just 3,080 pounds, though, those ponies are moving just 8.21 pounds apiece, which puts the B6 Venator in a dead power-to-weight heat with the 911 Carerra. That said, Spyker's Victor Muller tells WSJ that this will not be a "Porsche killer."
So, what underpins the new Spyker? WSJ points out that the car's specifications are very close to those of the Lotus Evora S, and we know that the British boutique automaker is happy to lend engineering support where it's necessary. We don't know for sure what the B6 Venator is based on, but Muller reportedly pegged his role in the process as "designer." In any case, we're sure the B6 will have all the aero-inspired detailing of past Spyker models. It will reportedly be priced between 125,000 and 150,000 euros, with production "in the hundreds."
WSJ also says we are to expect a P2P (Peking-to-Paris) super-sport-utility vehicle based on Saab's unused Phoenix architecture with financial backing from China's Youngman, as we've previously heard.
