Tracing its roots back to a historic Dutch aircraft manufacturer, Spyker was reborn in 1999 as a highly exclusive boutique sports car manufacturer based in the Netherlands. This 2006 C8 Spyder represents the marque’s original flagship vehicle and is one of only 46 examples produced for the United States and just 124 built in total. It comes finished in Champion Silver over a beautifully crafted Ruby Red leather interior and carries an Audi-derived 4.2-liter V8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle. This C8 also sports over $25k worth of optional features including a widebody specification, quilted leather trim, and 19” Aeroblade wheels. Accompanied by extensive documentation and benefitting from a major service, this rare C8 Spyder is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas while showing just over 5k miles on the odometer.
Finished in Champion Silver, the full aluminum bodywork is based around a Spyker-designed ultra-stiff spaceframe and incorporates high-gloss polished headlights spoons and air inlets as well as a rear diffuser and electrically operated single hinge tilting doors. This example was ordered in widebody specification and features an optional soft top, xenon headlamps, and 19” Aeroblade wheels. The finish is preserved by clear paint protection film and the car rides on a set of Pirelli P Zero tires dated 2015 in front and 2020 in the rear. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cockpit is upholstered in Ruby Red with optional quilted leather trim, a turned aluminum dashboard, and Spyker emblems embroidered into the headrests. Interior features include a unique exposed shifter mechanism, frameless windows, keyless entry, pushbutton ignition, tinted glass, air conditioning, and a leather-trimmed Aeroblade steering wheel.
The mid-mounted 4.2-liter V8 engine delivers up to 400 HP to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transaxle and a Drexler limited-slip differential. Stopping power comes from AP Racing 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake calipers paired with ventilated and cross-drilled discs. The fully independent and fully adjustable double-wishbone suspension includes Koni F1 shock absorbers as well as Eibach springs and front anti-roll bar. A major service performed in 2021 included a new water pump, timing belt kit, thermostat, idler pulley, spark plugs, valve cover gaskets, camshaft seals, serpentine belt, fluids, and filters as well as a new clutch, flywheel, and pressure plate. Other items replaced during this time included the door struts, rear decklid struts, and remote battery.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, the original window sticker, toolkit, a car cover, luggage, and a clean title.
