This Spyker C8 Laviolette is also one with a special history, it was driven into the Thames in the openings scene of Basic Instinct 2 (2006) by Sharon Stone. A murder was committed with the car in question. Spyker had to arrange 4 cars for this movie: One underwater dummy, one to be fired and one for all regular scenes, and of course one on reserve. This C8 was the first limited edition ever to released by Spyker. Not more than 25 of this C8 Laviolette Limited Edition Basic Instinct 2 would be manufactured.
Just like in te movie, the car has jet black paintwork, a lipstick red interior and a brushed aluminium dashboard. Risk Addiction, starring Sharon Stone. She embodies the essence of the Spyker driver: entrepreneurial, self-made, demanding and inquisitive. The movie, the plot, the characters and the car are a perfect match. They all combine elements of power, elegance, seduction and suspense.
The #015 came to us November 2021 for maintenance and some refreshment of the paint. Later on the owner had the idea to give this car a cool feature, a new designed diffuser inspired by the Spyker C8 Aileron. After we made the designs in Auto CAD, we implemented this new style diffuser in February 2022.
