Spyker took a big hit when the company's Saab investment was slowly ground into the dust, but the Dutch company is now about to unveil its rebound car, the B6 Venator. The Venator will cost between $160,000 and $200,000, and will be powered by a 375 hp mid-mounted V6. It should weigh in at around 3,000 lbs due to a carbon fiber body and an aluminum chassis, so those 375 horses should certainly be able to get it going quickly. All this means that it has a better power to weight ratio than a Porsche 911 Carrera, but is in a package the size of a Cayman.
Expect the interior to have the same machine turned aluminum dash, exposed gear shift mechanism, and quilted leather as all other Spyker cars, inspired as they are by WWI-era fighter planes and pilots.
Spyker is also working on an off-road ready SUV that was previewed by the Peking-to-Paris concept at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show and a new car called the Spyker Phoenix that will be based on the Saab Phoenix platform. Both are being developed with China's Youngman.
