unit to the Lotus powerplant comes from Spyker CEO Victor Muller in a letter he sent to people that had registered interest in buying a Venator.

Lotus buys the 2GR-FE V6 engine from Toyota and modifies them with a supercharger to produce 345hp and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of torque. When Spyker first announced the B6, it said that it would be powered by a mid-mounted V6 with an excess of 375hp.

Muller also announced that the first 100 Venator buyers will receive a watch from Swiss company Chronoswiss that will be inspired by the Venator’s gauges and interior. Each watch will have the production number of the car engraved into it.

Production of the B6 is not due to start until November 2014. Buyers can reserve a car for a €20,000 deposit.
