More Used Spyker Coupe Reviews /All Spyker Cars

If you can get your hands on a Spyker sports car, especially the Spyker C8 Aileron 2011 Sports Coupe, we say you should do so! Spyker brand vehicles are certainly hard to come by these days, and that makes them all the more special. An independent company that builds sports cars by hand, the Spyker company name originated in the late 19th century, when it was connected to a Dutch company that built automobiles and planes. Although the business failed at that time, in 1999, a pair of Dutch businessmen bought the rights to the name and began a new company that builds super sporty, luxury vehicles tailored to suit buyers' needs. Ten years later, in 2009, Spyker debuted the Spyker C8, the first automobile of the brand to be sold in North America, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The production-ready Spyker C8 Aileron Sports Coupe was debuted in March 2011 at the Geneva Auto Show.

Because of Spyker's hand-made quality, enthusiasts can rest assured that all of its vehicles, including the Spyker C8 Aileron 20011 Sports Coupe, are made with incredible attention to detail. And while most people only see Spyker cars on display at auto shows, those lucky enough to own a Spyker have the opportunity of owning one of the most amazing, unique cars in the world. We appreciate all of the Aileron's special qualities from its top speed of 187 mph, to its to Audi-sourced V8 power and highly customizable body styles. In fact, the sporty Spyker C8 Aileron 2009 Sports Coupe is sure to impress anyone who has the chance to get a good look at it. The C8 Aileron's design is intensely inspired by Spyker's aviation heritage (like all Spyker models), but has a clear emphasis on second-generation aircraft propulsion. In short, the design focuses on the turbine of an aircraft instead of the propeller, which inspired all of Spyker's first-generation cars. The Aileron name actually pays tribute to this aviation background. The aileron is the device that makes an aircraft turn and symbolized the turning point that the Spyker brand hoped to find with the vehicle. The Aileron is slightly larger and less risky than Spyker's C8 Spyder and Laviolette coupe models, and its original pricing was between 189,990 euros (with manual gear box) and 195,990 euros (with automatic gearbox). Both of these prices exclude additional options.
