The low-volume luxury supercar was introduced into the Spyker lineup back in 2000, since then, the 400-hp Audi-sourced V8 has become a thing of the past. New reports from Road & Track indicate that the next-generation of the C8 might ditch the Audi V8 in place of something a bit more efficient, and supercharged.
In Geneva, John Walton, Chief Commercial Officer at Spyker, told, “[The Audi V8] really hasn’t got enough bang for the buck. To be honest, every supercarsr needs to have something that begins with a ’5′ today. That’s why we’re supercharging the car in the future which will take it to over 500-hp.”
While the use of a supercharged 6-cylinder is a possibility, the company has yet to give any official details as to what the next-generation C8 (or B6) will house in the engine bay.
