Spyker reveals police C8 SpyderEnlarge Photo
Spyker has delivered a one-off special police version of its C8 Spyder to the rural forces in the Netherlands. The C8 is a hand-built sports car developed by Spyker and it is powered by an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V-8.
There are several different flavors starting with a 400-horsepower version capable of reaching speeds of up to 186 mph moving up to the C8 Double 12S, a street-legal version of the C8 Le Mans racer with an optional 600-hp engine. A more expensive and powerful version, labelled the C12 because of its W-12 engine, is also in development.
This is just the latest high-end performance car to be turned over to crime fighting forces. You may remember our previous article about the Austrian police trialing a Porsche 911 S and the lucky Italian boys in blue taking delivery of a Lamborghini Gallardo.
