Spyker B6 Venator Revealed as Porsche Cayman Rival


Spyker hinted that it would be heading to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with a B6 Concept, and the above photo appears to be the first image of the concept sports car.

The Dutch automaker is looking to prove that it has landed on its feet after the Saab buyout fiasco, with its new B6 Venator concept where Venator is Latin for “hunter.” According to The Wall Street Journal, the Venator concept will be powered by a mid-engine V6 with 375 hp mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The exotic will be built on an aluminum chassis with a carbon fiber body and aims to weigh in at under 3,080 pounds. It’ll essentially be the same size as a Porsche Boxster, though Spyker’s Chief Executive Victor Muller is realistic that “anybody who says they’re going to build a Porsche killer is crazy.”

Pricing will be set between €125,000 ($162,725) and €150,000 ($195,270) said Muller, and he currently anticipates production will be in the hundreds.
