2010 Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85
The Spyker company is a real blast from the past. Before introducing the original C8 in 2000, the company hadn’t made a car since 1925. Of course, the new and old Spyker couldn’t be more different except for one thing: both are strongly tied to Spyker’s heritage as an airplane builder. One look at the propeller front-and-center on the Spyker logo will confirm that. Appropriate too, because the LM85 would probably fly off the road without the large carbon fiber rear spoiler to keep the 400 horsepower car hunkered down. The LM85 was inspired by the Spyker Squadron GT2 Le Mans cars, built on a GT2 all-aluminum chassis, and swathed inside with reflection-reducing black leather and alcantara. With wild detailing such as a turned aluminum dash, and eye-popping orange and silver livery punctuated with a huge assortment of air scoops and grills feeding the big Audi V8, the C8 Laviolette LM85 is hard to miss.
