Lotus-powered Spyker B6 Venator could happen

Dutch media is reporting that Spyker’s CEO Victor Muller has sent a letter to potential clients that the automaker is about to team with Lotus. It seems that the B6 Venator is going to be powered by a Lotus engine which will actually be manufactured from a Toyota-derived block. At the moment of writing none of the parties involved confirmed or denied this deal, but apparently the car will have the engine inside the Lotus Exige S which is a V6 3.5-liter supercharged mill. If this deal will happen, the engine is likely to output a minimum of 345 bhp and a peak torque of 400 Nm.

In the same letter, Victor says the automaker is going to form a partnership with Chronoswiss to provide the first 100 clients with a Venator launch edition which will boast a turned aluminum dashboard that will have a Chronoswiss clock matched with a Chronoswiss watch which will be engraved with the production number of the car.

Spyker is currently accepting preorders for the B6 Venator, with production commencing in November 2014. A preorder will set you back 20,000 euros.
