The Spyker B6 Venator Spyder Concept is a new convertible compact 2-door
mid-engine luxury sports car from the Netherlands' manufacturer. Designed by
Chief Executive Officer, Victor R. Muller, this latest model continues the
brand's aviation-inspired lines and features, with a bejewelled interior to
match the striking exterior.
The all carbon-fiber body and aluminum platform house the V6 engine, which develops in excess of 375 hp. The Spyker B6 Venator Spyder will go into production late 2014 for key markets in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and India, followed by the US in early 2015, with a price point of around $150,000.
"The Spyker B6 Venator Spyder Concept will make its European debut on 4 September at Salon Privé, the UK's premier luxury automotive lifestyle event," said Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker Cars. "We are delighted to share our newest high-luxury sports car design with the discerning drivers who comprise the audience of this premium event."
Spyker cars have not been selling so great lately, so the brand from the Netherlands is hoping to significantly increase production with the new B6 Venator coupe and convertible models.
"For the Tenacious No Road is Impassable."
The Spyker B6 Venator Spyder Concept incorporates vintage cues of the brand's aviation past, highly detailed design and bespoke materials into a defiantly contemporary statement that could only come from Spyker. The company's Latin axiom "Nulla tenaci invia est via" - "For the tenacious no road is impassable" - is tastefully featured on the exterior. The name "Venator" is Latin for "Hunter," a nod back to Spyker's "Hunter" fighter aircraft of the early 20th century.
The trademark radiator grille's mesh is V-shaped, referencing Spyker models of the previous century. The 1903 Spyker logo harkens back to an era when Spyker built racers such as the amazing 60HP.
The headlights, equipped with LED light rails, give the car an aggressive stance. The 3D LED rear lights are akin to the iris-type after burners of a jet engine from a modern fighter aircraft.
The brake light has been sculpted into the rear panel design to ensure smooth, flowing design lines.
