Spyker B6 Venator Concept live at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 7, 2013

Spyker has unveiled the B6 Venator concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. A report by The Wall Street Journal gave us more information about this concept, which will be competing with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. It comes with a price tag of around $150,000. The new Spyker B6 Venator is named after the Latin translation for hunter.

The B6 Venator features new LED accents and Spyker’s signature V-mesh grille. The name “Spyker” is also written in the same script used on the brand’s 1903 60 HP race car. The Venator pays homage to Spyker’s aircraft manufacturer history by giving it an interior that takes inspiration from an airplane. Its interior, which uses aluminum and leather, comes with the automaker’s signature exposed gear change mechanism.

It also gets an engine start button disguised under a red cover. The B6 Venator is powered by a mid-mounted V-6 that’s coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The V-6 can deliver 375 hp but none of the other engine specs are known. Considering that Spyker has been using Audi-sourced powertrains, it’s likely that the Venator is powered by Audi’s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, which has an output of 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque in the S5.

Spyker declined to say if the transmission was a traditional torque converter automatic or a dual-clutch transmission. It also didn’t confirm the chances of a six-speed manual ever being available in the Venator.

The Spyker B6 Venator has a carbon fiber body that is built on an aluminum chassis. The B6’s weight is lower than 3080 pounds due to the use of light materials and compact dimensions. This weight is actually identical to what Porsche is claiming for its base-model 2013 911 with the PDK automatic transmission.
