The Spyker C8 Preliator is a sports car manufactured as the successor to the C8 Laviolette and C8 Aileron.
The Spyker C8 Preliator marks the next step in Spyker Cars' evolution. The 2-door mid-engine sports car will offer the discerning driver of the highest standards a new choice, delivering a rare combination of heritage, design, craftsmanship, performance and exclusivity.
Highly detailed design, bespoke materials and aviation-inspired elements are a core part of the Spyker DNA. Spyker's third-generation sports car features design cues from jet propulsion aircraft, highlighting the turbine blade, NACA duct air inlets and little wings, ailerons, to improve the car's aerodynamic performance.
With sleek aerodynamics, a long GT-wheelbase, luxurious and spacious cabin and world-class drivetrain, the new C8 Preliator has broadened the appeal of the Spyker brand while maintaining the marque’s exclusivity.

The Spyker C8 Preliator was added in the 2019 Spring Update as a high-end Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1299
- MAX rank: 1493 (+194)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1615 (+122)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +59
- This was changed to +48.
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 316
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/12/16
The Preliator has a total speed of 206.9 mph / 333.0 km/h at stock. At MAX it has a speed of 242.2 mph / 389.8 km/h. At MAX+PRO it has a speed of 265.7 mph / 427.6 km/h.
The acceleration of the Preliator is horrid at stock but improves substantially as it is upgraded. When compared to older vehicles such as the adjacent ONUK Sazan LM, it becomes apparent that the Preliator also has an abnormally large Tuning Kit bonus for acceleration.
Due to the wider availability of other Class B vehicles, the Spyker C8 Preliator sees little use in Career Mode, while it is overshadowed in TLEs by other vehicles with higher ranks.
Assuming the player has another vehicle with a faster acceleration stat, the Spyker C8 Preliator is more suitable to be placed as a slot 2-5 vehicle in the Gauntlet, where its good top speed can be used to its fullest potential without being handicapped by its acceleration or nitro efficiency.
The Spyker C8 was originally obtainable only by completing its Championship event. As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the can be purchased for 870,000. Between April 19-23 2019, it was available for 8,000. After the 2019 Halloween Update, it was sold as an exclusive vehicle for 4,000.
It was part of the 44th Multiplayer Season, Black Ice Season, as a Champion League reward. Players who already own the C8 Preliator would win a Free Class A Upgrade instead.
