Dutch sports car manufacturer Spyker recently confirmed plans to unveil a convertible version of its B6 Venator concept
this year, and hinted that both show cars were destined to spawn production versions. The last we heard, Spyker planned to start production of its B6 Venator sometime in 2014, though the company hasn’t said when sales in the U.S. might actually commence.
We should have more details on Spyker’s plans for the U.S. market soon, as the company will be attending next week’s 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where it will also show off its convertible B6 Venator Spyder.
To build excitement, Spyker released this teaser image depicting the car’s curvaceous silhouette.
The B6 Venator will be Spyker’s second model and is designed to slot in below the current C8 Aileron. It will draw its power from a V-6 engine, which will be mid-mounted and deliver as much as 375 horsepower. This should guarantee lively performance considering the expected curb weight, at least in coupe form, will be a tad over 3,000 pounds.
Spyker predicts pricing for the B6 Venator will fall somewhere between $125,000 and $150,000, and we wouldn’t expect much of a premium for the B6 Venator Spyder.
Following the launch of the B6 Venator, Spyker plans a high-performance crossover that it will develop with its Chinese partner Youngman
. The vehicle was first hinted at as far back as 2006 with Spyker’s D12 Peking-to-Paris concept car, but an updated concept, one more closely resembling the production version, is due next year.
The Motor Authority team will be present at the Pebble Beach Concours to bring you all the latest on the B6 Venator and Spyker’s future plans. To stay abreast of our coverage, simply follow our dedicated hub
