Spyker, the new British sports car maker has announced first details about the new C8 Aileron GT race car, that will be ready for the start of the 2012 motorsport season.

Spyker Squadron Managing Director, Peter Van Erp, said: “We will develop the car for the new GTE class, although after its first season we will assess whether there is sufficient demand to develop a variant to FIA GT3 specifications. This would be relatively straightforward and would increase the potential customer base for the car and associated race support package. We are already attracting customer race teams wishing to buy an off-the-shelf car, with enquiries arriving from Europe and the Far East,” continues Van Erp.

Spyker’s previous race car – the C8 Laviolette GT2R – claimed two second-place GT2 class finishes in the Le Mans Series, it also scored a fifth place in the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans.
