In the March of 2013, I reported that the B6 Venator will be Spyker's bright future after having a chat with Victor Muller at the Geneva Motor Show. Today, the District Court of Midden-Nederland sent Spyker to bankruptcy, but Muller won't surrender just yet.
Spyker, the Dutch builder of gorgeous mid-engined supercars, just filed for the Dutch equivalent of Chapter 11 financial restructuring. In layman's terms, they just filed for bankruptcy.
Spyker, the Dutch car company that arguably builds some of the prettiest automobiles in the world today, is not going bankrupt, according to company CEO Victor Muller. That comes on the heels of a Dutch court order to either pay the company's landlord, or get evicted from the factory. Yeesh.

The last couple years have been a bit rough for Spyker, the Dutch supercar manufacturer that tried but failed to rescue Saab and lost a ton of money in the process.
