The Spyker B6 Venator will go up against the Porsche 911, with prices starting from around £106k

Remember Spyker? The quirky Dutch sports car manufacturer was saved from bankruptcy by Chinese company Youngman in 2012, and now it’s looking to turn around its fortunes with a new 911-rivalling model revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.

The B6 concept is smaller and lighter than the existing C8 Aileron and was first revealed by Spyker CEO Victor Muller in an interview with the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.

According to the report, it will be badged Venator (‘hunter’ in Latin) and use a combination of carbon-fibre bodywork and an aluminium chassis to keep kerbweight down to 1,397kg – identical to a new Porsche 911 Carrera 2.

Power is expected to come from a mid-mounted 370bhp V6, while prices will start from around £106,000.
