Aileron

I just saw Victor, and on his desk he had a brand new polished aluminum scale model of the FINAL iteration of the Aileron design. Every line of the design of the #237 prototype has been improved. The new design is staggeringly harmonious and beautiful.

Soon he will send me some pictures of the aluminum model, which we are allowed to post on the Owners Part of the site (sorry enthusiasts)

Rijk, do you know it the first Aileron's are already build? Jeffrey told us that they were building three crashtest prototypes a while ago in the UK. Are they already finished?

Or is that top secret information

PS Rijk, can you tell anything about the final design of the Aileron? Maybe just which areas have been changed the most or something like that?

We are so curious

The differences are subtle, but all lines are now flowing through much better. The front and back are slightly curved. I love the much longer glass roof, compared to the Laviolette. All elements are much less individual, but beautiful details. The new elements are better integrated and more balanced. Victor has spent countless hours to refine the design.

A worthy next generation.

Did Spyker designed the Aileron in-house or was there cooperation with an external designer?
