- Looks like: Newest Spyker loses some of the brand's trademark outlandishness
- Defining characteristics: Aluminum and carbon-fiber construction, expansive glass roof, mid-mounted V-6 engine
- Ridiculous features: Spyker went a bit overboard on the aircraft-inspired design cues
- Chance of being mass-produced: Expected in the U.S. in fall 2014
For the last few years, Spyker's cars have been overshadowed by the automaker's struggle to revive the now-bankrupt Saab brand, but exotic cars are again at the forefront with the debut of the B6 Venator concept. Though technically a concept car, the mid-engine sports car is destined for production and is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. in fall 2014 with an expected price in the range of $125,000 to $150,000.
Spyker sports cars have had a certain outlandishness, with the various C8 models sporting turbine-style vents aplenty and an extravagant interior design. The new B6 Venator concept's appearance is relatively conventional in comparison. There's a large oval mesh grille and the two-door's profile and roofline recall Lotus' Evora sports car. There are enough similarities with the Evora that we suspect the cars share a platform, but a Spyker spokeswoman wouldn't say.
