 Pros The Spyker C8 Spyder SWB Sports Convertible Coupe comes with incredibly unique styling and coveted hand-created features.

 Pros The C8 Spyder, like other Spyker models, is highly customizable and contains many options from which the driver can choose. Your Spyker C8, if you can get one pinned down, will likely be the only of its kind you ever see on the road (or even in general).

 Pros This luxury vehicle includes a powerful, well-made all-aluminum 4.2L V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and generates 354 pounds of torque at 3,400 rpm.

 Pros The Spyker C8 Spyder is part of a family of vehicles dedicated to quality and uniqueness. As a Spyker driver, you become an important part of the brand's active community.

 Cons Standard luxury safety features included in other competing vehicles are lacking in the C8. While it includes such components as airbags, it could more along this line.

 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, and we aren't impressed- even if that's not one of the vehicle's focus areas.

 Cons The Spyker C8 Spyder SWB Sports Convertible Coupe is a simple vehicle: there's radio, limited power steering, and no traction control or braking assistance. What this vehicle does have is a ton of modern engine technology. In short, this is a true driver's car, and this is evidenced by the fact that you can adjust the engine's sound mode from normal to accentuated.

 Cons The C8 Spyder is terrible on fuel economy (again, not its focus). It gets around 13 miles per gallon in the city and 18 miles per gallon on the highway. This vehicle's great for Sunday drives, but not for practical, everyday driving.
