Full auction description:

2006 Spyker C8 Spyder

To be offered at auction

Chassis No. XL9AA11GO6Z363090

400 bhp, 4,172 cc, mid-rear mounted Audi V8 engine with aluminum bock and heads, dual overhead camshafts, five valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and electronic sequential-port fuel injection, Getrag six-speed manual gearbox in rear transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension with upper and lower A-arms, pushrods with inboard Koni shocks, coil springs and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel, ventilated and slotted hydraulic disc brakes with ABS. Wheelbase: 101.4"

- From an important private collection
- Aircraft-inspired styling with Spyker heritage
- Audi V8 performance
- Virtually new, less than 400 actual miles

Heralded by the slogan “Nulla tenaci invia est via,” meaning, “For the tenacious, no road is impassable,” Holland’s Spyker reemerged as an automobile constructor in October 2000. Debuted at the Birmingham Motor Show, the radical C8 Spyder was a complete stylistic departure from anything that preceded it yet skillfully recalled Spyker’s early background in both aircraft and automobile production.

Notable design elements included fuselage-type styling, rear “cannon-port” vents, a prominent wide grille intake, a propeller-inspired steering wheel, an engine-turned dash insert and more. With a race-bred, fully independent suspension, six-speed gearbox and 400-horsepower, 4.2-liter Audi V8 engine, the C8 Spyder is in many ways a modern road-going counterpart to the sleek, piston-engine “warbirds” of WWII fame.

The C8 was approved for importation into the United States in 2005. Road & Track editors were among the first to comprehensively test its considerable performance capabilities. Noting the exposed and polished shift linkage for the six-speed manual gearbox with its positive and precise action, R & T testers described it as “the 6-speed shifter equivalent to the exposed inner mechanicals of a Frederique Constant timepiece.”

Once underway, “The gearbox feels precise, its closely machined tolerances achieving the sensation of positive engagement without being notchy.” The R & T testers continued, “The C8’s pedal cluster architecture is a machinist’s masterwork, appearing as if it could have been transplanted directly from an open-wheeler,” while “The non-boosted brakes…work like a combination of an anchor and drag chute to bring this 3,000-lb. sports car to a halt upon command.” Although it was suited to smoother roads, R & T pronounced the C8 a true “driver’s car” with its combination of quick steering, balance and neutral handling with some throttle-induced over-steer, easily provoked by the 400-horsepower Audi V8.

With 60 mph achieved from rest in 4.4 seconds and in just two gear changes, it is clear that Spyker’s design team achieved their design objectives with the C8. Finished in Metallic Blue with a tan leather interior, this 2006 C8 Spyder comes from a large private automobile collection and is like new in appearance, with no visible flaws in evidence and less than 400 miles from new. In short, this limited-production C8 Spyder is one of the most visually and viscerally thrilling supercars ever built. It is both a superb example and a fantastic opportunity for the true driving enthusiast.

Looks like Royal Blue over Pharaoh, to be precise.

p.s. one of the best write-ups I've read on the car
