After a prolonged silence, we ask: is everything OK with Spyker?
The last news we received from Dutch boutique supercar builder Spyker was back in August. That was when the B6 Venator Spyder Concept was revealed. Since then, there's only been one minor update, just last week in fact. And quite frankly, this has us a bit concerned. You see, we’ve always loved Spyker. Its styling is unlike anything else out there. The cars are hand-built, with solid power plants and now that Spyker has gotten over its Saab fetish, we all thought it would go back to business as usual.
But where’s the production version of the Peking-to-Paris SUV? Didn’t that Chinese cash infusion go to something? And what about the B6 Venator coupe itself? This was the car that was supposed to take the fight to the likes of the Lotus Evora and Porsche 911. But no, Spyker has been silent for nearly a year now. We reached out to Spyker before publishing this article for any comment, and received no reply. We’re anxiously waiting for any signs of life.
