  • #021 - C8 Spyder T - Silver/Green

    This is as far as I know the only C8 Spyder T that is build. It is the first time that Spyker used the new widebody that later became standard.

    It has the same 4.2 Audi V8 as the normal cars but now fitted with 2 Turbo's and it delivers 525 hp and 560 Nm. The work on the engine is done by Cosworth.

    Originally the plan was to build 25 cars so that the Spyker C8 Spyder TR (later called C8 Spyder GT2R) could be homologated to race under both ACO and FIA GT rules.

    At the Amsterdam Motor Show in February 2003 Spyker announced that it would unveil a twin turbo variant of its C8 Spyder at the IAA. In cooperation with Cosworth Technology of North Hampton, a wholly owned Audi subsidiary, the Audi V8 twin turbo engine is prepared for use in a Spyker C8 Spyder. In order to cope with the increased engine output (525 instead of 400 BHP) the Spyker C8 Spyder T has a wider track, extended wheel arches incorporated into the body and a small rear spoiler. Moreover, the car has additional front wing louvres, sill louvres and Koniís newest four way F1 show absorbers.

    It is anticipated that the Spyder T will go into production into the second half of 2004 with the intention of building 25 prior to the 2005 race season and to homologate it for events both under ACO (Le Mans and American Le Mans series rules) as well as under FIA GT rules. The launch of the Spyker C8 Spyker TR is expected in the 3rd quarter of 2004 and will be campaigned alongside the continuing Double12 program.

      Why did the C8T not make it into production?

        Because the Spyker C8 is such a light car, that more than 400 HP without electronic driving aids, and in the hands of a novice, is a deadly combination.

          Is this also #021, the C8 Spyder T? I took this photo at Pebble Beach, California, in August 2004.

                    Does it really have 525 horsepower ?
                    Is the spyder T still in production ?

                      It was never in production. This was a one-off. Would be interesting to find out where it is now. Still with Spyker perhaps?

                      Yes, you will see the model tag. But note the dashboard here is different from what it had when it was presented.

                      Some more photos from when it was at Pebble Beach in 2004.

                        Could also be #018, which has the same colour combo and interior.

                            So #021 is transformed into a Laviolette?

                              In theory it has 525 bhp, but there was no engine in #021 and #021 it is the only spyder T build
