The 2011 Spyker C8 Aileron was initially launched as a â€œconcept vehicleâ€ during the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

The 6-Speed Getrag comprises of ratios matched with the engine output while the ZF 6 Speed has standardized paddle shifters attached behind the steering wheel for automatic transmission.
As of February 2011, the latest C8 Aileron cars are available in the market after a series of delays caused hundreds of Spyker fans to turn down the companyâ€™s formal launch. According to Spyker Cars, the 2011 Spyker C8 Aileron will be officially launched during the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
Since 2000, Spyker Cars continues to gain regard in manufacturing premium sports cars.
