We've always appreciated Spyker for their unconventional aircraft-inspired designs and the level of detail and craftsmanship put into their interiors. Thankfully, their all-new B6 Venator Concept, revealed in Geneva is more of the same. If you know their older cars, then taking one look at this will immediately tell you what this is.

The B6 is a compact, Porsche Boxster-sized car, with its engine mounted in the middle of its all-aluminium chassis clad in carbon fiber. Providing the car's motivation is a V6 engine, which they say produces in excess of 375 hp.

The power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox, which can also be operated via the exposed-linkage gear lever (a Spyker trademark) or paddles located behind the steering wheel.

Inside the B6 Venator, the airplane-inspired passenger compartment thoroughly deserves being called a "cockpit". Aside from the funky design, future owners of the car will be pleased to know that all the leather used to upholster the interior goes through a "special tanning process" just so the richness of the color finish is just that little bit richer.

The start of production is planned for beginning of 2014, and deliveries to Europe, the Middle East and Asia will start soon after. The US is also getting the B6 next year; however, buyers will have to wait until autumn. The price is expected to be roughly the equivalent of between $125,000 to $150,000 (€95,000 to €115,000).
