North-American debut for the Spyker C8 Preliator at the New York

Victor R. Muller, Spyker’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said: ”Spyker is delighted to be back at the #newyork International Automobile Show to unveil the new #spyker #c8preliator in one of its most important markets, #newyork. Historically #spyker has sold half of its production to the United States of America of which a very large number of cars were sold in this state through Spyker's first dealer in the USA, Manhattan Motor Cars”.

"The #spyker C8 Preliator’s design represents the ultimate translation of our aviation heritage to a “road jet”, a plane without wings, reflected among others in the Head-Up Display, fitted as standard to every car. It is the epitome of our unrivaled craftsmanship. By mounting a supercharger to the Audi V8 engine we have improved the performance of the #spyker #c8preliator significantly as compared to its predecessor and its exclusivity is warranted since we will produce a mere 50 units".

"The Preliator name, which means "fighter" or “warrior” in Latin, pays tribute to that aviation heritage: Fighters are warplanes as made by #spyker between 1914 and 1918. But even more so, “Preliator” symbolises the uphill battles #spyker faced and won in the past couple of years".

"The #spyker #c8preliator is made for discerning owners who appreciate the attention to detail and bespoke features we have offered them for over a decade and a half now. Our dedicated crew will assemble the first cars in Coventry, UK, together with CPP Metalcraft, our very first partner since we started #spyker back in 2000, as of the last quarter of this year". 

"When I designed the #spyker #c8preliator I wanted it to ooze the sheer tenacity and determination with which we created a new dawn for our company and by launching it here today we pay homage to the Latin axiom which has adorned the #spyker propeller logo since 1914 “Nulla tenacia invia est via” - for the tenacious no road is impassable”.
