The Spyker C8 Preliator has been caught on the floor of the Geneva Motor Show.

Set to be unveiled tomorrow afternoon, the C8 Preliator will be one of the company's most important models as it will be the first Spyker to be introduced since the automaker's bankruptcy was declared null and void back in 2015.

Little is known about the car but the picture seems to suggest the model will be the replace for the C8 Aileron which was originally introduced at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.  The styling differences between the two models are pretty subtle as the new car is distinguished by a modified front bumper, a revised grille, and updated headlights.  The C8 Preliator also has a carbon fiber front lip spoiler and a new ventilated hood.

Specifications remain a mystery but the C8 Aileron was powered by an Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8 engine that developed 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.  The engine was connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enabled the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 187 mph.

It remains unclear if the C8 Preliator will use the aforementioned engine but previous reports have suggested the car could have an electric powertrain.  This isn't too surprising as the company has previously announced plans to build "elegant and classy [electric] motorcars" following a merger with Portland-based electric aircraft manufacturer Volta Volare.
