The Spyker B6 Venator Concept has now been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. The name Venator is apparently Latin for “hunter”, which Spyker hope will generate images of Dutch fighter jets. The car itself is built upon the tried and tested chassis of the Artega GT.
The Dutch company may be indebted to the tune of €160 million ($210 million) following the collapse of Saab, yet they hope that the Spyker B6 Venator Concept will mark the start of a new era. It is essentially a 911 competitor with a 375 horsepower V6 engine. Power will be delivered through a six-speed automatic transmission.
The use of an aluminum chassis combined with a carbon-fiber body will reduce weight to just under 3,080 pounds. The cars footprint is similar to a Porsche Boxster, giving it excellent, precise handling.
Inside, customers will get an aluminum dashboard with an exposed gearshift mechanism and rich, quilted leather. The italicized script logo on the Spyker B6 Venator Concept’s grille is a reproduction of the company’s 1903 logo.
All of the above will come at a price though. The Spyker B6 Venator Concept will start at between €125,000 and €150,000. It will be joined by Spyker’s P2P after it recently got the green light for production by Spyker’s Chinese sponsor, Youngman.
