The 2013 Spyker B6 Venator Concept indicates the beginning of a fresh era for the brand, which will include an increase in production.
The new Venator will be featuring design elements such as the aerodynamically-shaped glass aircraft canopy and a V-shaped radiator grille common in all other Spyker models. The production of this Concept is scheduled to begin in early 2014 for key markets like the Middle East, Europe, and Asia pacific.

The new B6 Venator features a mid-mounted V6 power train that produces 375 horsepower. The engine is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Other performance related features will include: an all aluminum platform chassis and a RWD drivetrain system.
With these combinations, the Venator is projected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
Just like any other Spyker model, the 2013 B6 Venator will include the trademark V-shaped radiator grill's mesh. The glass canopy extends towards the rear to optimize performance and minimize drag. The rear feature 3D LED rear lights, while the brake lights have been sculpted into the rear panel design.
The car will be offered with aggressive 19-inch TurboFan wheels in mirror polish finish.
The interior is crafted from materials which are uncommonly airy and open for a sports-car. The ignition switch comes with a red cover that reminds of starting an airplane. The dashboard will feature an aluminum fascia and will light up when you start the car.
The seats are fitted with leather that comes from the Royal Hulshof Dutch Tanneries of the Litano range. Another notable interior feature is the trademark exposed gear-change system inspired by early aircraft control design from Spyker's aviation legacy.
The 2013 Spyker B6 Venator Concept seems to be a car that enthusiasts will be looking forward to in the near future. However, upon its production, this car will face some stiff competition from rivals that include: Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the new Jaguar F-Type, the Maserati Gran Turismo, and the Porsche 911.
