 Pros The Spyker C8 Aileron Sports Coupe has incredibly unique styling and coveted hand-created features. Its cabin holds: a fully leather Hulshof interior, a keyless ignition switch and engine start / stop button, air conditioning, turbine design air vents, a uniquely design standing pedal box, , a 12 volt connection in the glove box, leather-trimmed luggage compartment and roof upholstery, adjustable Sparco sport seats, and remote-controlled electrically operated, single-hinge tilting doors.

 Pros Highly customizable features, including a choice of 16 different paint colors, 5 wheel options, 4 color options for brake calibers, an exhaust Whisper Mode option, the choice of adding Spyker headrest logos, and several other options.

 Pros Your Spyker C8 will likely be the only of its kind you ever see on the road and its design is one-of-a-kind. B The C8 Aileron's design is 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.

 Pros Includes a powerful, well-made engine ( a 4.2-liter Audi V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower) and employs a six-speed man or an optional six-speed automatic transmission that help it achieve a 0-60-mph time of 4.5 seconds.

 Pros The Spyker C8 Aileron Sports Coupe is incredibly fun to drive in any situation.

 Cons Standard luxury safety features included in other competing vehicles are lacking in the C8.

 Cons While a $5,000 Louis Vuitton tool kit is impressive, we'd like to see that kind of energy spent on more technologically valuable features.

 Cons The price is a bit over-the-top. Drivers can get a lot more power and features from other brands for the same or lower price.

 Cons The fuel economy isn't fantastic at 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway (or 15 mpg combined).
