Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker Cars, and Andrea Zagato, CEO of Zagato, unveiled the Spyker C12 Zagato at the 77th Geneva International Motor Show in 2007. Norihiko Harada, Zagato’s Automotive Chief Designer, and Muller co-operated closely to design this limited edition of 24 sports cars to be delivered from March 2008 onwards. The world premičre of this ultra-exclusive version of the C12 range celebrates Spyker’s entry into the world of Formula One and marks the first integration of design elements and styling cues from the Spyker F8-VII Formula One car into the Spyker road car range. This point was underlined by the unveiling of the car being performed by Spyker’s Formula One race driver, Adrian Sutil.

The Spyker C12 Zagato is an all aluminium rear wheel drive sports car, based on the Spyker C12 Spyder. The C12 is powered by the 6.0 liter, 12 cylinder, 500 bph W12 engine from Volkswagen AG and accelerates from 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.8 seconds. The Spyker C12 Zagato is equipped with a six-speed manual or automatic gear box with F1 style shifting, Chronoswiss instruments and a Zagato designed full leather interior with brushed aluminium instrument panel. The C12 Zagato has an aluminium body with stainless steel roof rails and has many F1 derived design details such as an F1 nose, air scoop, chimneys, mirrors, rain light, fuel flap and diffuser. It has a panoramic roof that features the Double Bubble, a typical Zagato style element. The Spyker C12 Zagato has a length of 4.5 m, a width of 2.02 m excluding mirrors, a height of 1.25 m and weighs 1480 kg. The fuel tank capacity is 70 litres (15.4 gallons). Top speed is 310 km/h (193 mph).

“The Spyker and Zagato Atelier brands perfectly align because of their common aeronautical origins and because of the shared passion of Victor Muller and myself for sports cars” states Andrea Zagato. “Nevertheless Victor, before starting this extraordinary adventure with Spyker, was a Zagato collector owning cars like the Flaminia SS and TZ. Together with our neo-classical approach, this Spyker C12 Zagato shows the capabilities of Zagato Atelier for innovative and non conventional solutions.”

Norihiko Harada, designer of the new Spyker C12 Zagato, adds: “All Spyker cars have their own very unique style: the aeronautical retrospective style co-exists with craftsmanship and elegance. The new Zagato body becomes even more unique, aggressive and sensual at the same time. It features a new double bubble panoramic roof, F1 influenced nose and air intakes, chimney and a “coda tronca”, the typical Zagato cut off tail end. Maintaining Spyker’s styling philosophy, Zagato design put all these elements together and created an extremely stimulating example of contemporary exotic high performance sports car by using typical modern Zagato lines which started from the Raptor Zagato in 1996.”

Wow, gorgeous. Nice to see the classic Zagato double bubble as well.

Getting rid of the fins on top would however be a good idea.

Bleh, the C8 looks way better to me. The front of this looks like some mid '90s GM concept car or something, and the back just makes me think of Cadillac.

Spyker's standard line up is much better. This is pretty nasty looking.

I am stunned by how much money Spyker seems to have. They virtually came from nowhere, they are making not one but several types of expensive cars (which according to rumours aren't selling that well), they are running their own Formula 1 team. The whole lot is costing millions and millions of Dollars and they can afford it. I find that really weird.

Spyker can afford all the extravagance because the principal investor is John de Mol.
