Dutch supercar manufacturer Spyker – which briefly dabbled in Formula 1 when it bought out the Midland F1 team (which it subsequently sold on to Vijay Mallya, who renamed it Force India) will display a new concept car at next month's Geneva auto show. The B6 concept is expected to be smaller and lighter than the current C8 Aileron (ABOVE), and is being touted as a rival to the Porsche 911.
Furthermore, Spyker is expected to imminently resume car production following the transfer of its manufacturing equipment from Coventry, UK to Zeewolde in Holland.
As production gets underway away once again, focus will shift toward the joint ventures between Chinese firm Youngman and Spyker agreed to last year. The first is a project called "Spyker P2P B.V.," a luxury SUV based on the Spyker D8 Peking to Paris concept. With investment from Youngman in development, a launch in late 2014 is expected.
Youngman and Spyker are also collaborating on front-drive cars built on the Phoenix platform developed by Saab just prior to its bankruptcy. This project has been named "Spyker Phoenix B.V." and aims to produce a range of premium cars that could be built in Europe or China.
