The Dutch company Spyker has stopped producing sports cars, but existing copies of several models from the Netherlands periodically appear on sale. At Monterey Car Week in August 2024, one of the most collectible C8 Laviolettes will go under the hammer, distinguished by its history and condition, as well as just a few kilometers on the odometer. This example graced the brand’s stand at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

Spyker released this C8 Laviolette in 2001 – the car, chassis number 182, is finished in olive green. After its public debut, it was sold to a private buyer, who has since driven the car less than 60 kilometers. The C8 was then found by Spyker expert Jasper den Dopper in 2020 and purchased by a US enthusiast. Prior to the sale, Dopper carried out a full service, installing a new steering wheel and upholstering the seats in leather sourced from the original Spyker supplier.

The seller claims that this Spyker C8 Laviolette has the world’s most transparent history and the lowest mileage. Brown leather adorns the seats, transmission tunnel and door panels, and the dashboard is trimmed in aluminum, as is the gear lever. The car is sold with two Spyker branded luggage sets.

It has less than 125 kilometers on the odometer, and although the car’s design is over 20 years old, it still looks quite modern. The supercar is powered by a 4.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine from Audi producing 395 horsepower with a 6-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive. A total of 55 of these Spyker C8 Laviolettes were built, and the seller expects to fetch at least $550,000 for this particular example.
