Spyker B6 Venator Spyder 1 600x368 at Pebble Beach: Spyker B6 Venator Spyder Unveiled

Following the Geneva debut of the new B6 Venator, and while it still hasn’t seen the light of day, dutch car maker Spyker reveals a Spyder version of the car at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elagance. Apart from the obvious lack of roof, the Spyker B6 Venator Spyder is the same as the Coupe.

And that means you get a fairly lightweight (1400 kg), mid-engined, two-seater sports car, powered by a 375 horsepower V6 engine mated to a six-speed single-clutch automatic transmission which sends the power to the rear wheels.

The construction of the B6 is a blend of carbon fiber for the body and aluminum for the chassis. It features traditional Spyker design cues such as the unique front grille, headlights with LED light rails, and 3D tail lights on the exterior, and the famous exposed gear change mechanism was inspired by early Spyker aircraft controls, red starter button and finest leather on the inside.

To be produced alongside the Coupe in 2014, the B6 Spyder will be taking on cars like the Porsche 911 and Maserati Gran Turismo, costing around $150,000. The car will initially launch in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and India, followed by the US in early 2015.

Chief Executive Officer Victor R. Muller chose The Quail as the site for the Spyker B6 Venator Spyder Concept’s worldwide premiere because, “It is the car’s natural habitat. Car enthusiasts from around the globe descend upon exquisitely beautiful Pebble Beach for the Concours d’Elegance weekend, and The Quail Motorsports Gathering is the most exclusive event of all.”
