Similar to other Spyker models, the 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 SWB is 4185 mm long and 18880 mm wide, with a height of 1245 mm. It can reach zero to sixty in only 4.5 seconds. The C8 Laviolette also has superb stopping power due to its AP brakes. The fuel tank holds 75 liters, and helps the SWB get up to its maximum speed around an amazing 190 mph. A unique start button allows the driver to start the SWB in a very unique way.
The SWB is more curvaceous than its slightly boxy brother, and looks all the better for it. A sport two-seater that comfortably accommodates two persons, the Laviolette is wonderfully crafted, and its design proudly showcases the aerial features for which Spkyer is known. The chassis, also resembling other Spyker C3 models, is all- aluminum. The front and rear suspension are entirely adjustable in this vehicle. 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.
The only really negative feature we can find in the Laviolette SWB is its less-than-perfect ride quality. Spyker cars have been reviewed as being 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 amazing, enjoyable experience.
