The B6 Venator is still very much on its way.
Last week we received reports that some of Spyker Cars’ assets were to be auctioned off due to a tax dispute. Some of these assets included a collection of cars ranging from the Peking-to-Paris SUV concept and C8 racer to the Aileron, C12 Zagato, and even an F1 car. Some 85 V8 Audi engines were also thrown into the mix. The auction was set for July 25. However, we can officially report that the auction has been called off.
A PR spokeswoman representing Spyker Cars has reached out to us confirming that everything has been settled. It was all just a matter of bad timing and a slow payment process. Spyker CEO Victor Mullen said: “There is no auction or issue, and this should never have been news. A business tax dispute was settled and paid last Wednesday, yet the authorities took nearly five full days to process the payment. During this time, there was a website link to an auction that caused negative press for Spyker Cars. That link has finally been removed and the authorities have confirmed their receipt of payment.
Spyker Cars remains on track with the production of the B6 Venator and will be releasing additional details in the near future." Happy to hear that all is well, Spyker. We’re now anxiously awaiting the arrival of the B6.
