In-game descriptionEdit

"A unique midship supercar made in the Netherlands."



When you think of handmade exotic supercars, the Netherlands isn't the first country that comes to mind. But the Spyker C8 is Dutch by birth, built mostly of aluminum, from the frame all the way to the handcrafted body panels. The name Spyker isn't entirely new to the automotive world. Back in the late 1890s, a company called Spyker began producing cars not long after the invention of the automobile. It was primarily known for its production of the world's first 4WD vehicle, but the company disappeared in 1925.

Fast forward to 1997. The name Spyker is resurrected as a low-volume specialty-car manufacturer. The company unveiled the C8 Spyder in October 2000 and the fixed-roof Laviolette coupe in February 2001. Later it released the C8 Double 12S, a street-legal racer whose platform was used as the basis for Spyker's GT racing machines. The Spyder and Laviolette featured the Audi S8's 4.2-liter V8. It came in two variations, one producing 394 BHP and the other 443 BHP. Mated to this mid-mounted powerplant was a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The 443 BHP version of the Laviolette boasted a top speed of 190 mph and 0-62 mph time of 4.2 seconds.

Spyker also developed a racing car called the C8 Double 12R based on the Laviolette but using a 4.0-liter engine. The car raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2002.

TriviaEdit

  • In Gran Turismo PSP, this car was incorrectly listed as an FR car despite actually being a mid-engined car. The incorrect drivetrain would be later fixed in a post-release update for Gran Turismo 5.
    • Until Gran Turismo 4, however, the drivetrain of this car wasn't mentioned in the menus.
