Spyker Could Return In 2022 With V8 Engines And An SUV
Another year, another rumour from the world of Spyker.
Spyker has had a tough time in the past ten years; the company has experienced all kinds of financial hardships, including a deal to buy Saab from GM, which went horribly wrong.
However, an official announcement on December 31, 2021:
According to Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker. This time, the Dutch carmaker has returned in 2022 with new internal-combustion vehicles, supported by funding from two principal Russian investors.
The two investors are Boris Rotenberg, owner of SMP Racing and BR Engineering and Michail Pessis. The co-owner of SMP Racing Monaco owns Milan Morady SA in Luxembourg and R-Company GmbH, a car exporter in Germany.
Muller went on to say, ‘the collaboration agreement which we confirmed today is the starting point to rebuild Spyker as a sports car manufacturer. With a more solid foundation than ever before, and with ample access to better technical and financial resources than we ever had to achieve our ambitious business objectives.’
Reports say that Muller will produce three Spyker models. The Spyker C8 Preliator, the Spyker D8 Peking-to-Paris SUV, and the Spyker B6 Venator. Production to begin in 2022.
‘In a world dominated by electrification, there is an undiminished demand for real sports cars, the ones that tantalise all senses. We will continue to cater for that group of enthusiasts in particular. Of course, we will offer hybrid solutions in our future models, but the V8 ICE remains at the heart of every Spyker for many years to come.’
