Spyker recently showed off its B6 Venator Spyder concept, a convertible 2-door mid-engine sports car that includes a few vintage cues along with modern style and technology. Vintage design cues show up in the V-shape radiator grille mesh and the Spyker logo of 1903. Apart from these simple visual vintage cues, the car goes the full modern route.
B6 Venator Spyder has an all aluminum chases that gladly accepts the all carbon fiber body of the sports car. A rear mounted V6 engine sends 375bhp to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The leather upholstered cockpit takes inspiration from airplane design, complete with a red cover on the ignition switch and a dashboard that lights up to simulate something like a “pre-flight” check. The same aircraft design follows through to the rear of the car, where the lights have been designed to give the look of afterburners of a jet engine.
Production for the B6 Venator Spyder is set to start in 2014, with Spyker considering key markets for sales in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and India. The car will make a US appearance in early 2015, carrying a price tag in the range of $150,000.
