Spyker C8 Aileron
The 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is soon to be underway, and one of the cars on show is Spyker’s upcoming C8 Aileron, which is making a public appearance shortly before going into production. The occasion marks the North American debut of the Spyker C8 Aileron. Featured prominently in the show’s concept car section, its performance is real enough – the Aileron’s Audi-sourced V8 is said to propel the Dutch supercar to 60mph (96km/h) in just 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 187mph (300km/h). Scheduled for production in late 2008, every Aileron will be equipped with a Kharma sound system, incorporating a GPS system, Bluetooth, CD player and I-pod connectivity. Optional features will include a turned aluminum dashboard fascia, 19″ Aeroblade wheels, quilted leather detailing for the cockpit and Chronoswiss dashboard instruments. If that wasn’t extravagant enough, customers may also order a Louis Vuitton luggage set exclusively made for Spyker, the only car company in the world to have such an arrangement with the famous French design house. The Aileron went on display during the pre-event auction on August 13th and will be on display through the 17th, the day of the actual Concours.
