During the North American New York International Auto Show the Dutch sports-car manufacturer Spyker unveiled the 2010 Spyker C8 Aileron just a few weeks after its world debut at the Geneva auto show. Spyker founder and CEO Victor Muller say that first deliveries of the new C8 Aileron will begin in May.

Power for the Aileron comes from an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 400 bhp and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. Either a Getrag 6-speed manual gearbox or a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission can be ordered with the car. The chassis is new, an aluminum space-frame design with suspension designed and produced by Lotus. The front and rear aluminum double wishbone suspension carries 19-in. wheels that are slowed by 13.8-in. front and 12.1-in. rear brake rotors. C8 Aileron is six inches longer than the car it replaces, and the roofline is lower and longer for a cleaner look.


The front and rear unequal-length control-arm suspensions now feature forged aluminum components to help reduce unsprung mass at the corners, while the standard four-piston, cast-iron disc brakes from AP Racing measure 13.8 inches across in the front and 13.1 in the rear. An optional upgrade to carbon-ceramic discs will be available later in the year, the company says.

The manufacturer suggested retail price for the Aileron is $209,990 with the manual gearbox, and $219,990 with the automatic, both excluding options. Expect to see a convertible version in August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance in Monterey, California.
