Not content with supercharging Audis, tweaking Lamborghinis and bolting turbos to X-Bows, German tuning house Motoren Technik Mayer (MTM for the rest of us) has now turned its hand to The Netherlands' finest automotive export, Spyker.

More specifically, they've decided to fit a supercharger to the 4.2 litre Audi V8 of the Spyker C8 Double 12S, itself a road-going version of the C8 Double 12R Le-Mans race car.

Spyker C8 Double 12S - MTM supercharged

MTM's tuning package is only available for the lower-spec 298kW (400hp) variant of the Double 12 (there's a bonkers 448kW version available), but the MTM supercharger kit takes power up to a very respectable 373kW - the perfect middle ground for those that prefer their supercars a little less homicidal.

Torque also rises from 480Nm to 570Nm (420lb.ft), but all this extra grunt is going to cost you. MTM charge ?40,000 for the parts alone, with installation estimated to cost a further ?5831. The Double 12S doesn't come cheap either, and being a rare bird (only 14 have been built) you certainly pay for the exclusivity.

Still, you're virtually guaranteed to be the only kid on your block with a supercharged Dutch supercar. Isn't that what it's all about?
