Dutch sports cars manufacturer Spyker is known for their aircraft oriented light-weight and well-crafted vehicles. They typically boast either a V6 or V8 engine, but the new fighter jet will be the Spyker B6 Venator and may be equipped with a Lotus sourced engine. Nothing technical is set in stone quite yet, but Spyker has announced their partnership with Lotus in a recent letter to potential customers, making the possibility much higher.
If the company uses the engine, it will be a modified supercharged 3.5-Liter V6 engine producing around 375 hp. The engine is built off of a Toyota block and is originally found in the Lotus Exige S. Without Spyker’s modifications, the supercharged V6 only provides 345 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, making us wonder how Spyker CEO Victor Muller plans to up the ante on power for the already performance-oriented engine.
The B6 Venator is said to be released in November, 2014. Two options will be available, a Spyder version running for about $150,000 and a Coupé version for $140,000. The first 100 off the line will be part of a special edition series sponsored by Swiss watchmaker Chronoswiss.
The Limited series will be specially made with an aluminum dashboard featuring a built-in Chronoswiss clock. However, the price will be a much higher $195,000 for United States buyers, but they will also be receiving a matching Chronoswiss watch to go with the dashboard.
