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.
The Spyker C8 Preliator is largely a collector's item—while its brisk and decent nitro efficiency give it some merit for multiplayer, it is a poor choice as it will struggle against the McLaren MP4/8, Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and Acura NSX GT3 Evo; in TLEs, it sees little use as Division and B-Class cups will have faster cars available.
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.
