Spyker looks keen to shake off the dust of the Saab implosion. The Dutch supercar-maker unveiled the new B6 Venator Concept today at the Geneva Motor Show, saying the mid-engine coupe marks the beginning of the brand's revival.

Penned by Spyker CEO Victor Muller, the B6 is designed to pay homage to Spyker's past with a V-Shaped mesh grille inspired by vintage models like the 60HP, though the concept also pulls a few tricks from the company's aircraft lineage as well.

With a wraparound canopy, LED tail lamps designed to look like the burners of a jet engine and 19-inch "Turbofan" wheels, the model is reaching to draw parallels between itself and the aviation industry.

Thrust comes from a relatively modest 375-horsepower V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox. While that number may seem low for an ultra-exclusive two-seater, the B6 Venator benefits from a light-weight construction. Every last body panel on the concept is hewn from carbon fiber stretched over an aluminum chassis. Spyker says the vehicle should tip the scales at under 3,100 pounds.

Interested parties will be able to purchase a production B6 in early 2014, if you live in key markets like Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific regions. For American customers, your wait extends to late 2014. While official pricing wasn't given, Muller did mention that he'll be asking somewhere in the $125,000 to $150,000 range.
