TopGear drives the Spyker Aileron
The desert is about to get that bit hotter thanks to the outlandish £194,000, 400bhp Spyker Aileron...

So the £194k Aileron is a response to a market need: all the drama of the first-gen cars, with a little more day-to-day usability. It works. The Aileron certainly hasn't lost any of its kerbside wow factor - the American contingent making indecipherable mewing noises wherever we stop. Driving it slowly is easy, the Audi-sourced 4.2-litre V8 in the back chuntering along without complaint, the auto plopping between changes without fuss. But the highways of America aren't really a very keen strop on which to hone my knowledge of how the Aileron actually handles, so we head off into the Lost Dutchman Park (I'm not making that up), at the bottom of Usery Park, to find some curlier roads.
