The exterior of Spyker C8 Preliator 2017 can at once be recognized, however a closer inspection will highlight a few changes that are made especially for this new generation model.

Moving towards the rear end, along the sides of the model you’ll notice the rectangular vents sitting vertically, not only adding to the aerodynamic performance but also the looks. The rear fascia comes with a flat rear lid with a LED strip running through the entire length.
