After shopping around the prototype at car shows around the world last year, Dutch automaker Spyker is ready to unveil the production model of the C8 Aileron at the Geneva auto show in March. A topless version of the C8 Aileron has also been promised at the same time.

This video on YouTube.com shows the interior and exterior of the C8 Aileron prototype, but details on the final products are scarce. A Spyker representative said, the vehicle will look similar, but will be a bit more refined and with slightly different packaging. But how much more refined can you get than a quilted leather interior with synthetic quartz instruments?

The C8 Aileron retains the technology platform, including a modified 4.2L Audi engine mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or automatic transmission with paddle shifters. But new for the Spyker line of cars will be the addition of ABS brakes. Welcome to the 21st century.
