The D8 was first known as the D12 Peking-to-Paris when it bowed as a 2006 concept but changed its name when it swapped powerplants last year. Spyker originally introduced a 500-horsepower, 6.0-liter Volkswagen W-12 engine but has since decided on the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 from the Cadillac CTS-V. According to Spyker CEO Victor Muller, newly acquired Saab facilities, parts, and technology were instrumental in hastening the D8ā€™s development, which had been on hold since November.
The D12 was previously priced at a hefty $281,100 and final pricing is likely to be similar. In addition to its Spyker design, the D8 carries a 4400-pound curb weight, a 0-60 mph time of less than five seconds, a top speed of 170 mph, and suicide doors.
