Spyker Convertible Reviews

Spyker is known worldwide for their sports cars so it makes sense that they would offer a Spyker convertible model as well. Like other styles of Spyker cars, the convertible shows the tie-in with the airline history that the name is well established for. The original Spyker Cars was a Dutch car manufacturer that eventually went into the business of manufacturing aircraft and engines. Long after that company had ceased to exist, the right to the brand name was purchased by another Dutch car manufacturer and the focus was switched to high end supercars. These sports cars would make a name for themselves both in what they had to offer and the distinctive design that they were known for.

Right now there are only a few versions of Spyker cars on the market and the Spyker convertible is no exception to this. With a current selection of two convertibles, Spyker builds their business on demand for what they offer and not on mass quantities of choices. Both of the convertibles that are offered showcase a luxurious interior and a unique exterior that is paired with supreme handling and power. This makes them a hot commodity in the sports car world and many enthusiasts prefer the Spyker name.

One of the Spyker convertible choices is the C12 LaTurbie. This two door convertible has been on the market since 2006. It was the first Spyker to utilize the 6 Liter 500 hp Audi V12 engine. The engine alone gives it more power than the average sports car and the LaTurbie can easily reach top speeds of 202 mph. Combining this kind of performance with the precise handling offered on this car, makes the driving experience one of a kind. Add in the luxury inside the cabin and Spyker fans will find everything they need in this convertible.

The most common version of Spyker convertible is the C8 Spyder. The C8 is one of only a couple of models of Spyker car currently being produced and the Spyder is the convertible version of this model. The Spyder is nothing more than a softtop version of the C8 Laviolette. Like many other Spyker models, the Spyder boasts a design inspired by aircraft. It features a 4.2 liter 400 hp v8 motor and a six speed manual transmission. The interior is both stylish and luxurious with complete leather and a brushed aluminum design. Even with the luxury, it is the exact steering and supreme handling that make this a favorite of the Spyker line-up.

Though the name of Spyker has roots in many different styles of vehicle, the current company focuses their time and energy on designing the top of line sports cars that they have become known for. Speed, luxury and performance combine to give buyers a driving experience that they might not find elsewhere. There may not be large variety in the selection available from Spyker Cars, but the choices available are top of the line.
