    The Spyker C8 Spyder is a very rare and unique machine, but for some people, the notion of "just a bit more" is too much to resist. The owner of this particular Spyker reached out to us with a mission: to make his C8 Spyder a bit more exciting by designing a custom exhaust system and tuning the ECU to extract a bit more power. To accomplish this, we dialed in a mild tune on our Dynojet and extracted gains of 31whp and 16 ft-lbs of torque to match the aggressive new soundtrack.

    We'd love to show off the impressive work that our fabrication team did on this build, but the owner has asked that we keep this one under-wraps. Instead, we'll have to let the video do the talking for us.

    The moment I pressed the start button on a Spyker, I knew I would be writing the check to buy it. The exhaust note is perfection. I really didn't think it could be improved upon but it seems like Fabspeed have done it! I'm afraid to ask the cost for this setup...but I will anyway (PM is fine).

    Btw, the rear tail-lights are straight out of the Diablo parts bin. Always makes me smile to see that little throwback/hommage.

    There's one locally that makes it to most of the major meets. Incredible car to go over, discovering new details each time. Remarkable level of craftsmanship and design.

    This was a fully custom job that we performed for this customer. That being said, there may be a way for us to replicate it. I will say this: it would be worth every penny if we can make it work for you. It completely transforms the character of the car. I'll shoot you a PM with details.
