2013 Geneva Motor Show: Spyker B6 Venator Concept is official

Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2013

Spyker introduced today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the all-new B6 Venator Concept, a compact, 2-door mid-engine sports car that promises to resurrect the well-known Dutch manufacturer. The concept was designed by Victor R. Muller, Chief Executive Officer of Spyker N.V., and according to the official press release, it features a highly detailed design, bespoke materials and aviation-inspired elements are a core part of the Spyker DNA.

The name Venator, means Hunter in Latin and evokes Spyker’s “Hunter” fighter aircraft of the early 20th century. Some of the exterior details include the trademark radiator grille’s mesh is V-shaped, inspired by the models of the Spyker models of the previous century, but also the 1903 Spyker logo which reminds us of the era when Spyker built racers such as the amazing 60HP.

Moreover, we find the aerodynamically shaped glass aircraft canopy, as well as the 3D rear lights that are inspired by the iris-type after burners of a jet engine from a modern fighter aircraft. The brake light is sculpted into the rear panel design, in order to ensure smooth, following design lines. The exterior design is completed by the 19” TurbofanTM wheels shown in polish finish.

The interior includes the finest materials, such as leather sourced from the Litano range produced by the Royal Hulshof Dutch Tanneries in Lichtenvoorde. The dashboard has an impressive aluminum fascia, similar to those seen on the 1920s Spykers.

The Spyker B6 Venator Concept uses a 375+ bhp V6 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Power is delivered to the rear wheels. According to the official press release, the Spyker B6 Venator Concept will begin production in early 2014 for key markets including Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and India, followed by the US in autumn 2014.
