According to a recent report, Spyker CEO Victor Muller has sent out a letter to potential customers that confirms the company is partnering with Lotus.
Details are limited but Autoweek.nl is reporting the B6 Venator will use a Lotus-built engine that made from a Toyota-sourced block. Nothing is official but the website says the car will likely use the supercharged 3.5-liter V6 that resides in the Exige S. If this pans out, we can expect it to produce at least 345 bhp (257 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
The letter also indicated that Spyker will team up with Chronoswiss to offer a Venator launch edition to the first 100 customers. It will reportedly feature a turned aluminum dash with a Chronoswiss clock and come with a matching Chronoswiss watch that is engraved with the car's production number.
The company is reportedly accepting pre-orders for a €20,000 ($27,170 / £16,980) deposit and B6 Venator coupe production is slated to begin in November of 2014.
