THE QUIRKIEST SUPERCAR! My First Spyker C8 Laviolette Drive

  Ganger 154,769


Måned siden

The Spyker C8 Laviolette is the quirkiest supercar I've driven! With an attention to detail that's only really known from Pagani, the Dutch cars are loaded with unusual details, beautiful finishes, and unique touches. Join me with Barry at Ikonick to take a first drive!
The Spyker C8s (both Laviolette and Spyder) are powered by an Audi 4.2l NA V8, making 400hp and 480Nm, putting the power to the rear wheels through a glorious 6 speed manual gearbox with exposed linkage in the cabin. While physically being very small cars, combined with a race orientated suspension setup, the connection and feel for the driver is incredible to experience.
Visually, the design inherits numerous elements from aviation, from the turbine wheels to the propeller logo, combined with the use of quality materials throughout. The interior is luxurious and beautifully crafted in a way that's more familiar from Pagani models like the Zonda and Huayra.
Barry Skolnick recently bought the two Spyker models to add to Ikonick The Collection, along with the carbon fibre bicycle and owner's watch, but I certainly wasn't expecting them to be as entertaining to drive as they are!
A huge thanks to Barry and the team at Ikonick for my drive in the Spyker C8 Laviolette, be sure to follow them for more!
Thanks for watching, Tim

The Spyker C8 Laviolette has taken me by surprise! Having spotted them a number of times over the years, I certainly didn't expect them to be such great fun to drive. Thanks to Barry and Ikonick for the run out in some of the latest acquisitions to the collection:

The original Spyker car company, having been coachbuilders since 1880, build around 1500 'horseless' cars in their Amsterdam factory between 1900 and 1926. During WWI they made without great success airplanes as well, as symbolised in the logo design from 1914 which was adopted about 85 years later by the modern company (and as you didn't fail to notice they love to throw around), probably hoping to cling to the legend of the old firm. And they should because three years after switching from coaches to motors it rolled out the "60 HP" model, the first car in the world to feature a 6-cylinder engine, AND traction on 4 wheels (decades before the Jeep), AND brakes on all 4 wheels, and mind you this was in 1903, for a Doug DeMuro of those days that must have been like a McLaren, Bugatti and Koenigsegg all in one! Another legendary feat was a Spyker coming in second in the 1907 Peking to Paris car race, probably the most gruelling race ever to have taken place that even today hardly any car would survive, only having lost to an Italian car because the Italians - as to be expected - cheated.The small original Spyker factory untill their inevitable end in 1926 produced cars that were seen as "the Rolls-Royces of the Continent" and although the Dutch in automotive terms overall haven't much to show for this much overseen part of the automobile's development history is a source of pride even today. FULL DISCLOSURE: Yes I am a Dutchman and for 15 years I lived in Amsterdam just blocks away from the original production site being well aware of it, and seeing one of the rare surviving cars of that age now in a museum (the first "60 HP" survives!) makes my blood indeed run faster. A brief look into recent developments also would have caught your attention. The modern Spyker shop shares with the old one a history of (near) bankruptcies, debt restructuring, unsuccessfull adventures (aviation in 1914-'18, Saab takeover in the 2000's) etc., but also having a hard time laying their head down. In 2016 Spyker agreed with Koenigsegg that they are going to supply a 600 hp V8 for the 2018 carbon fibre C8, which will by then the be the only manual gear box high performance car on the market, provided they don't go broke in the meantime. Shmee you would have liked the opportunity to drive that car, would you? Sadly, this January what remained of the company has again gone bankrupy after fruitless attempts to attract investments from Russia. Don't be surprised however at a new miraculous rebirth in the future.

150 miles from new! N hes going to drive it? I'm torn between thinking that's awesome, it's a are meant to be driven But also sad, since it's such a rare ultra low mile example So theres one less for the next generation Not sure if I'm odd in that sense, if I were buying a high end sports car I'd buy one with some mileage on it Let the collectors have their low mile cars I'll go for the drivers

I have a soft spot for Spyker ever since Victor Müller made an honest go at trying to save Saab. The man is definately worth a shout out and sadly he has lost the battle since Spyker has folded pretty recently.
