The plant, which encompasses 20,000 square feet, will enable Spyker to build up to five Ailerons a week.
Spyker has transferred Aileron production from Zeewolde, Holland to a new CPP-owned facility in Coventry, England.
The plant, which encompasses 20,000 square feet, will enable Spyker to build up to five Ailerons a week with a single shift. While it seems like an odd move, Spyker says the transfer "is in line with the company's strategy to scale up production and reduce, where possible, costs related to the manufacturing process."
According to Spyker founder Victor Muller, "This move makes sense on many different levels. CPP has been producing our body panels for 10 years and we have an extremely close working relationship with the company." He went on to explain, "More than half our components are sourced from the UK, so moving here will bring us considerable efficiency savings which is vital for a car company of our size."
As you may recall, the bespoke C8 Aileron is powered an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8 with 298 kW (405 hp) and 480 Nm of torque. Connected to a six-speed manual transmission (an automatic is optional), the car accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 187 mph.
