Coventry, UK-based carmaker Spyker Ltd, with the support of new investors, has confirmed its ambitious plan to offer two new Supercars and one SUV model over the next two years.
Since its inception in 1999, Spyker's history has been one of ups and downs which culminated for the former with the takeover of Saab in the early 2010s, followed soon after by a declaration of bankruptcy (2014), then a restructuring organized by its boss Victor Muller in 2015. Since that date, Spyker struggled to resume its development, despite the presentation of interesting projects such as the C8 Preliator Spyder unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 in the form of a concept .
Almost four years later, this model should finally see the light of day alongside other new models, thanks to the recent partnership signed with the Russian oligarch Boris Rotenberg, and the arrival of new partners such as BR Engineering and Milan Morady (a marketing company).
In addition to this Spyker C8 Preliator Spyder, which at the time of the presentation of the concept was supposed to be powered by a 5.0 liter V8 unit of 600 hp and 600 Nm supplied by Koenigsegg, Spyker will also emerge from its archives two other files to bring them to life. : that of the Supercar B6 Venator presented for the first time in 2013, and the dossier of the D8 SUV inspired by the D12 Peking-to-Paris concept presented by the manufacturer in … 2006.
