The Dutch builder of handcrafted sports cars, founded in 2000 by Victor Muller and Maarten de Bruijin, has tried unsuccessfully in recent years to recover from the bankruptcy sanctioned by the court at the end of 2014.
Perhaps the worst for Spyker has passed, thanks to the arrival of a new group of investors who plan to start, during this year, the series production of the models B6 Hunter, C8 Preliator e D8 Peking To Paris.
Production in Russia
The agreement, strangely not yet mentioned on the company’s official website, was reportedly reached on 20 December with the consortium led by Michail Pessis and Boris Rotenberg, a step that will culminate in the establishment of the new Spyker Group company.
At the head of the latter there will be Victor Muller and according to the press release the group of investors has already started the production of Spyker models in its own facilities. It is specified that future cars will come built in Russia, while the engineering department will be divided between the Federation and Germany.
Will it be the right time for the restart?
The models will be assembled in a new production plant located in the Netherlands, with the company intending to hire as many of its former employees as possible, as well as service centers on the Cote d’Azur and near the borders with Belgium, France and Luxembourg.
Muller allegedly stated that the collaboration agreement will be “the starting point for the relaunch of Spyker as a sports car manufacturer”, specifying the arrival of “hybrid solutions” for future models, despite the thermal V8 being used as the main powertrain. “still for a long time”.
All that remains is to wait for the next few months to see if it will really be a new beginning for the Dutch manufacturer with the arrival in production of the B6 Venator and C8 Preliator concepts or it will remain yet another announcement destined to fall on deaf ears.
