FrontRunners: Going Dutch
With the Spyker B6 Venator (www.spykercars.com), the Dutch automaker plans to return to the American market in 2014. The new design is created in the tradition of the limited-production, hand-built sports cars for which the brand is known. Unlike Spyker’s previous model, the C8 series—which was made of aluminum and powered by an Audi V-8 engine—the B6 Venator has a carbon-fiber body and a transverse-mounted V-6 engine that develops at least 375 hp.
The B6 Venator also features a curvaceous body and luxurious interior, which are hallmarks of Spyker cars, and exquisite aluminum details that exploit the beauty of the material and challenge the machinist’s art.
