Spyker reveals the B6 Venator Spyder Concept in Pebble Beach


A week ago, Spyker announced it would unveil a new model at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and it seems that they have fulfilled with that promise, showing us for the first time, the convertible version of the B6 Ventator. But keep in mind that this is only a concept, at a later date, Sypker will reveal the final version.

This car is virtually identical the coupe, so there isn't much to side besides it doesn't have a fixes roof. The styling features a V-shaped radiator grille, headlights d with LED light rails, 3D LED rear lights, and 19-inch "Turbofan" wheels.

The interior is made with the finest materials. Those include leather sourced from the Litano range produced by the Royal Hulshof Dutch Tanneries in Lichtenvoorde, Netherlands, and an aluminum trim.

The body is made from carbon fiber and the chassis from aluminum, so when a V6 petrol engine with over 380PS (300kw or 375bhp) mated to a six-speed automatic transmission is bolted to this 1400kg (3087lbs) rear-wheel drive sports car, it will go in a really fast manner.

Spyker estimates this car will cost around $150,000 (€114,000 or 97,500), which is a bargain for a hand-crafted car like this one.
