Lot 221 - 2007 Spyker C8 Spyder
|Odometer reading||9,968 miles|
|Estimate||£95,000 - £110,000|
The C8 Spyder is the original base model with an Audi 4.2 litre, V8 engine giving the car 400bhp and a top speed of 186 mph. Built in Holland and with an Audi derived engine, the Spyker company derives its styling cues from its aviation past with details within the cockpit that are, frankly, stunning. From the machined alluminium dashboard to the propeller-styled steering wheel, every aspect has been considered very much with styles and finesse in mind. The quilted seating and seatbelts, external air-scoops and even the logo are beautiful to see and when you consider the pricing structure, it is easy to see how they stand head and shoulders above the opposition in looks and value.
Presented in black with a matching dark green leather interior, this piece of automotive art complete with the correct Spyker toolkit and owners pack. With just two owners from new and an extremely low mileage recorded, it has undergone a service at 4,000 miles with another service and MoT test certificate immediately prior to the sale. An early and extremely collectable, pre-airbag, car, it was described in such rapturous tones by Jeremy Clarkson as ""not just your car but also your lover!"", but with only room for one Mrs. Clarkson, this fine example is now available…
