Up Close with Spyker C8 Preliator
One of the biggest attractions of the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance which went largely unnoticed, in the presence of giants such as Bugatti Chiron and Maybach Vision 6, was the extremely exquisite Spyker C8 Preliator. In this video we take a closer look at this exquisite Dutch creation.
As the latest evolution of a design that catapulted the modern-day Spyker from obscurity to the top of the supercar nobility hierarchy, Spyker C8 Preliator retains the original styling elements of the car but adds a number of new features to make the package more appealing to the customers. This is most evident inside the cabin where there is still a fair degree insanity permeating everything, even though some of the iconic touches such as the helm-like steering wheel or the naked transmission arms are gone.
