If you haven’t noticed the number of luxury carmakers touting special edition models directly to the swelling luxury car market in China, you need to lay off the Charlie Sheen and catch up. Lamborghini offers its LP 670-4 Super Veloce China Limited Edition, and now Spyker intends to offer a special edition C8 Laviolette for China.
The Spyker C8 Laviolette China will appear at the Shanghai Auto Show, and the company has already received some orders. This Spyker luxury car comes attached to a price tag of around $735,000, or $4.8 million yuan at current exchange rates. I am sure this may show up in a fleet of Los Angeles exotic rental cars.
On the outside, the Spyker C8 Laviolette Special Edition China will boast a bright orange color, and perhaps a red, white and blue flag decoration, which confuses me. The mirrors, inlets and wheels are all comprised of the best aluminum materials and are shaped beautifully.
Under the hood of the Special Edition C8 Spyker lurks a 4.2-liter V8 engine pulsing forth 500 horsepower, an improvement over the standard C8’s 400. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
