Spyker C8 Laviolette LWB to Debut at Geneva

Meeting demands

The Spyker C8 Laviolette is a car you love or hate, there really is no in between. For those who loved the looks and purchased the car, the Spijker C8 Laviolette was a bit on the small side. So the almost down-and-out Dutch exotic car manufacturer will meet the demands their customers have set and will release a long wheel base (LWB) version of their C8 at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.

There has been no official press release but we have managed to dig up some of the details. The engine remains the same, a 4,0 liter engine producing 400 hp with 480 Nm of torque. The wheelbase is stretched by 100 mm to 2675 mm, while the overall length increases almost 400 mm to 4584 mm. The width of the car also grows to 1920 mm from 1880 mm, the height of the car increases by 10 mm to 1255 mm and the fuel tank now holds 100 liters instead of 75 liters.

That there will be a Spyker C8 Laviolette Spyder LWB is only a matter of time, and it is expected that this convertible will have a motorized roof.

yes, i agree. I liked the old compact proportions of the C8. The LWB might be practicable in aerodynamics and performance, but yeah, looks a bit funny with this long tail ^^
