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
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 316
- Upgrade rank percentages:
- 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.
At MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, the Preliator has a total top speed of 277.4 mph (446.7 km/h), with a raw top speed of 246.7 mph (397.3 km/h). The performance is overall quite similar to that of the ONUK Sazan LM. This places the Preliator, in terms of performance, in the high range of mid Class B. It cannot compete with the McLaren MP4/8.
Similar to the McLaren 600LT, the Preliator at the stock level has an unusually low nitro value, at only around 10 km/h (rather than the standard 18+ km/h). Despite this low initial nitro value, the final nitro value is actually quite high (at 30.7 mph or 49.4 km/h). Therefore, it seems that the Preliator uses a different system of values compared to all of the other vehicles in the game, which seem to follow a standardized system of values. Due to this unique system of values, the Preliator with full upgrades has a (relatively) very large Tuning Kit boost for its nitro stat.
The acceleration of the Preliator is horrid at stock, but improves dramatically 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.
