Spyker Releases a Limited Edition C8 Laviolette LM85

Premium sports car manufacturer Spyker Cars N.V. announced the creation of the C8 Laviolette LM85; a road version of its GT2 LeMans car. You’re not likely to see many of these on the road though; it will be built as a limited edition with no more than 24 being produced.

The LM85 will be a two-seat sports car characterized by its lightweight aluminum body and an all-aluminum Audi 4.2-liter V-8 engine giving it an impressive power-to-weight ratio. The features of this car are all top of the line from the leather and glare-reducing alcantara in the interior, to the black powder coated alloy wheels and a carbon fiber rear spoiler on the exterior.

The automaker bills the car as being able to capture the racing experience. With such elegant features, it surely will- at least if you’ve got the money. The first of these select cars will be shown at the Jeddah Motor Show in Saudi Arabia on October 27 and the Los Angeles Auto Show November 19.
