 Pros The SWB is more curvaceous than its slightly boxy brother, and looks all the better for it. A sport two-seater that's very accommodating, the Laviolette is wonderfully crafted, and its design proudly showcases the aerial features which Spyker is known for.

 Pros The C8 Laviolette SWB also comes with some very special quirks that you're sure to only find within the Spyker brand. It has an all-aluminum, hand-built, body, complete with electrically operated tilting doors and an aerodynamic ground effect. The luxurious interior is trimmed in Connolly leather, and the two front and real luggage compartments are spacious. They even include two special made-to-fit Connolly leather suitcases.

 Pros C8 Laviolette SWB Sports Coupe holds a powerful Audi 4.2-Liter V8 engine like all other Spyker C8 models. This engine generates power of 400bhp and a peak torque of 480 Nm. It also comes with an optional 6-speed manual transmission. The vehicle is also fast-reaching zero-to-sixty in only 4.5 seconds.

 Cons After review, the only truly negative feature we can find in the Spyker Laviolette SWB is its less-than-perfect ride quality. Spyker cars have been deemed rough rides before, and we can see why. However, this particular Spyker SWB model does seem a bit more balanced than other models. It offers exceptional steering and cornering as well. Overall, it does what all Spyker vehicles are famous for, which is offer its driver an enjoyable, carefree experience.

 Cons Unfortunately, the Spyker Laviolette SWB is produced in extremely small quantities, so you might be a challenge to find one! If you do happen to stumble across a C8, you'll find it costs somewhere between $200-$250k.
