Spyker Squadron which is currently owned by CPP has released some information with two official photos about its new GT racer, the Spyker C8 Aileron GT.

Spyker plans on focusing its resources for the C8 Aileron GT that will be based on Spyker’s new flagship C8 Aileron luxury supercar, to be designed and developed in line with ACO’s new GTE specifications getting it ready for the start of the 2012 motorsport season. The development process will be undertaken by Spyker Squadron’s expanded engineering team at its Zeewolde headquarters together with its long-standing technical partners.

Peter Van Erp, Spyker Squadron Managing Director said: “We are taking a racing sabbatical this year to concentrate our resources on developing a new GT racer based on Spyker’s new C8 Aileron supercar, instead of continuing to spend money on a car at the end of its development cycle. For the long term future of Spyker Squadron, and for its role in the promotion and technical development of Spyker road cars, it’s a positive and strategically important step.”

The 2012 Spyker C8 Aileron GT will replace the C8 Laviolette GT2R racer, which participated for three years in the European GT endurance racing and for which it achieved two second place finishes in the GT2 class Le Mans Series in 2009.
