If you're looking for the ultimate niche exotic, Spyker could be your ticket. The Dutch automaker produces some of the most beautifully detailed machines on the road, and followed up this weekend at Pebble Beach with the convertible version of the new C8 Aileron which it debuted at the Geneva auto salon this past Spring.
Like the Aileron coupe, the convertible offers more room than the short-wheelbase C8 it replaces. And because Spyker had the foresight to engineer the Aileron as a convertible from the start, the aluminum frame retains much of the rigidity of its coupe counterpart. The Aileron Spyder is characterized by an hydraulic retractable soft-top, available in the buyer's choice of 8 different colors along with the various options for the interior and exterior colors, with a machined aluminum luggage rack and pop-up roll bars. Audi provides the power in the form of a 400hp 4.2-liter V8 mated to either an automatic or manual transmission, AP provides the brakes and exclusive electronics studio Kharma provides the entertainment system, making the new Spyker Spyder a very compelling choice for discerning motorists.
