Now here is an interesting tidbit of news. According to Autoblog.com, Dutch automaker Spyker may be looking to re-power their stunning C8 Aileron Spyder. The C8 Aileron Spyder is currently powered by a 4.2-liter Audi V8 that produces 400 hp, but in a world of 550+ hp super cars, 400 ponies just isn’t enough anymore. Replacing the Audi lump will be none other than the 6.2-liter supercharged LS9 out of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a engine that produces 638 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. With a planned production run of only 99 units, the Aileron Spyder will be one of the most exclusive vehicles out there so it makes sense that a new, more powerful engine would reside between its mid-mounted frame rails. I would assume that with the addition of an extra 238 hp that Spyker will also have to modify the transmission, axles and a host of other goodies so that the Aileron doesn’t go POP when the go-pedal is matted to the floor.
