In March 1922, the Dutch nobleman Hugo Baron van Pallandt entered his standard Spyker C4 Tourer in the hill climb held on the Mont de La Turbie near Monte Carlo and won outright with an average speed of 45 km per hour. He covered the distance in 11 minutes. In commemoration of this win the new 12 cylinder Spyker will bear the name LaTurbie.

The Spyker C12 LaTurbie will be the first Spyker to run the extremely powerful 6.0 litre Audi W12 dry sump aluminium engine. This car has a power output of 500 BHP and a gigantic torque of 600 NM. Top speed is 325 km/h or 202 mph with an acceleration of 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 3.9 seconds. Weight of the car is a mere 1400 kg. The car will be fitted with a manual six-speed gearbox. An F1 style paddle shift is under development.

The C12 LaTurbie is fitted with Spyker's in-house designed 19" AerobladeT wheels as standard. Further specifications include rear wheel drive with Drexler limited slip differential, ABS and a light weight aluminium space frame with integrated roll cage. The double twin exhausts make the overwhelming signature Spyker sound.
