Spyker B6 Venator

Love this one, does anyone do interiors as good as this, like a poor mans Pagani. I'm also wondering if this might be based on a Lotus Evora chassis, has similar dimensions, plus Spyker is part owned by Youngman who have a partnership with Lotus.

It seems Spyker is looking for a new engine supplier for the C8. It's good though. Audi would never supply engines like the 4.0TT to Spyker and the old 4.2 is massively outdated and underpowered.

As for this car, i don't know. It looks like they tried to squeeze the C8 too much and came up with this. The flares are a bit too much and the roofline is a little weird. I should see it in person to tell that i like it or not. But one thing is for sure the interior is done very beautifully just like any other Spykers. Oh and the 375hp supercharged V6 sounds like a Jag V6.

This car is fantastic. The lines of the car are perfect in the same way Aston martin's are. They are sporty yet sophisticated at the same time. The interior is reminiscent of pagani's, which is definitely a good thing. I love the detail and quality Spyker puts in there cars. When you look at the tail lights you can just tell a lot of thought was put into the car. I also like how they out there name in parts like the exhaust which shows pride in your product (saw another picture on car buzz). I would say well done Spyker, its a great comeback after the Saab incident. I will be a customer.

Looks like a mix of the C8 and the Maserati GranTurismo. Interior looks quite similar to the C8 which is a good thing.

I was thinking it might be the same Toyota engine as found Lotus Evora S.

At first I looked at it, and I was like, "Oh wow, a Spyker that might actually be less than $200k."


But then I saw the interior and that dream was shot.

The exterior line is just so pure... Bravo.

The jukebox interior is a bit too much, especially the green lights, but well, for that price one can enjoy over the top, hey :}

The suggested price in the UK is 100,000 pounds, so I think you might just be able to achieve your dream. This is Spykers 911 competitor.

Wow....this just might be the most beautiful car I've ever seen... In my opinion. Right up there with the alfa 8c and astons.

The more I read about this car the more convinced I am that it's a rebodied Evora, it went from design to rolling prototype in 20 days, so the chassis and running gear had to come from somewhere. The B6 is build on an alloy chassis with composite panels and it appears in this photo to have plus 2 rear seats, all very Evora like IMO. If it is Evora based then it's going to be a brilliant car to drive.
