PostHeaderIcon What Are The Craziest Supercar Interiors That Money Can Buy?

We’re gonna be honest here – supercars are just getting ridiculous these days. Let’s start with the performance. We left the 200-mph barrier a long time ago, and the tip-top shelf performance vehicles these days are pushing ever closer to 300 mph thanks to absurd four-figure power numbers, advanced aerodynamics, and spaceship composites under (and over) the skin. Or you could talk about the cost – if you’ve got the connections and the bankroll, it’s not all that difficult to spend millions and millions on just one of these machines. Indeed, the term supercar has taken on new meaning over the past couple years, and that includes evolved cabins to match the insane spec sheets. To celebrate that fact, we’ve assembled the top five craziest supercar interiors that money can buy, right here for your reading and viewing pleasure.

Over the top is a gross understatement when it comes to the following five cars. These things offer levels of opulence usually reserved for mansions, accomplishing the dual goals of looking good and going fast thanks to next-level design, materials, and execution.

Some of them are beautiful, some of them are weird, but all of them are insane in their own special kind of way. Which would you prefer? Or better yet, did we fail to include a crazy supercar interior that tops these five? Let us know in the comments section.

PostHeaderIcon The Spyker-Koenigsegg Collaboration Could Change The Supercar Landscape For The Better

It’s been rough going for Spyker over the past few years, but better days appear to be ahead for the Swedish maker of supercars thanks in part to a partnership it has entered with Koenigsegg. As per the agreement, Koenigsegg will now be the official engine supplier of both coupe and spyder versions of Spyker’s C8 Preliator, replacing Audi in that role and ushering a new era of supercar collaborations that could change the landscape of the segment in the coming years.

Yes, you read that right. Koenigsegg, the makers of all-conquering machines like the Regera and the One:1, will now be tasked to power Spyker’s future lineup of models, beginning with the two Preliator variants. The news comes as Spyker is set to present the C8 Preliator Spyder, the topless version of the coupe variant it unveiled in Geneva this time last year.

Remember, the C8 Preliator that was shown last year came with an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that put out 517 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Impressive, right? But when compared to the new digs Spyker’s getting from Koenigsegg – a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque – well, we’re going to let the numbers paint the picture.

With the new V-8 bolted up, the C8 Preliator Spyder will be able to sprint to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 201 mph. Sure, it’s not on the level of Koenigsegg’s four-wheel guided missiles, but it still comes as a slight improvement over the supercharged Audi V-8. It covered the same 60-mph time in 3.7 seconds before peaking at a similar 201-mph top speed.

But the Spyker-Koenigsegg partnership isn’t just about bigger engines, more power, and improved performance. It also points to something even more important, not only for both brands, but for the whole supercar segment entirely. Whereas competition remains the driving force of this market, this collaboration could open up a world of new possibilities for future supercar brands moving forward. It may be Spyker and Koenigsegg now, but imagine if, say, Koenigsegg and Bugatti joined forces to create the ultimate supercar? Impossible? Perhaps. But there was a time when the kind of partnership we’re seeing between Spyker and Koenigsegg would’ve been scoffed at as well.

PostHeaderIcon Spyker C8 Preliator

Spyker has had its fair share of trouble in the past. There was that issue with GM, and then Spyker eventually filed for bankruptcy. That bankruptcy was declared null and void, but it was still a troubling time for the company. That’s ok, though, because Spyker is back and has even debuted a new C8 this year at the Geneva International Motor Show. Dubbed the Preliator, it’s the third generation C8, and it’s said to be the “ultimate translation” of Spyker’s aviation heritage to a “road jet” or “plane without wings.”

The name “Preliator” means fighter or warrior in Latin, so it’s no surprise Spyker chose that name for its new C8. At the unveiling in Geneva, Victor R. Muller, Spyker’s Founder and CEO, said, “The greatest man in our industry, Enzo Ferrari, once said: ‘What’s behind you, doesn’t matter.’ What does matter is the fact that we have returned to Geneva today to unveil the worthy successor to the Spyker C8 Aileron, launched right here in 2009, of which the last five units are being assembled in our new production facilities in Coventry, the United Kingdom.”

So, Spyker hasn’t even finished producing the previous generation and has already debuted the next. The question is – does the C8 Preliator differ enough from the previous generation to suffice as a new model? Well, it’s still hand built, and from a glance, it looks to be an interesting car, so let’s dive on into this review and see what is going on with Spyker’s new C8 Preliator.

Updated 03/30/2016: Spyker announced U.S. prices for its new C8 Preliator at the 2016 New York Auto Show where the sports car made its North American debut. The car will be limited to only 50 units worldwide and will be offered with both manual and automatic transmission. Check the “Prices” section for more details.
