The C8 Preliator continue where the 2009 C8 Aileron stop. Both cars are fairly similar in terms shape and overall design, however the Preliator has sharper angles, especially the smaller vents which now resemble NACA style ducts instead of the chrome trimmed circular vents of the Aileron. Overall the Preliator is a smidgen longer too in order to improve both comfort and stability at speed.

Powering the Spyker C8 Aileron is a 4.2-litre V8 engine sourced from Audi. The engine has been tuned to provide 525 ph, and can be mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 6-speed ZF automatic with paddle shift.

Some may say the new sharper style of the C8 Preliator isn’t as attractive as the more unusual styling of the Aileron, and some may say the C8 Preliator looks like a more luxurious and expensive Lotus Exige.

The new styling of the C8 Preliator takes the main selling point of the C8 Aileron, its style, and throws it (mostly) away. Leaving it looking like a generic sports car with a massive price tag.
