The engines in supercars are notoriously fragile and short-lived. Mercedes’ upcoming engine may last a scant 31,000 miles, for instance. Koenigsegg, however, builds its engines so stout and so powerful that they could last for literal centuries.
I’m in an unusually good mood today and it’s not because I got to pet my neighbor’s dogs in the elevator this morning. It’s because the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is going on and it is hands down my favorite show. Here’s why.
Victor Muller is a lawyer by trade, but that might be one of the main reasons why his Dutch supercar company Spyker is still around. Yet he’s also the designer of stunning cars such as the new C8 Preliator, and a guy who refers to himself as the ultimate customer of his own car. Here’s why that all makes perfect sense.
Many supercars are carbon wonders, dedicated to providing nothing but the best possible lap time. The Spyker C8 Preliator will certainly set your hair aflame if you let it, but it serves another purpose. It exists to bring aesthetic beauty and joy to the world. Take a tour of it now with Victor Muller, the man who…
Victor Muller’s company pulled off a miracle once again. Their previous concept is back as the C8 Preliator, a 525 horsepower supercar with afterburner lights, golden roofs and exposed manuals. I’ll pop a champagne.
Remember Spyker? Spyker was fun.
What do you do when you own a Spyker C8? Call up Formula Drift pro Ryan Tuerck and get him to run out its Audi V8 and slay its rears.
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.
Well, that didn't take long. Less than a week after Spyker Cars' assets were listed for sale, the auction has been pulled and Spyker CEO Victor Muller has set the record straight.
Spyker Cars' assets are going up for auction to settle outstanding tax debts, so you can finally own the ill-fated D8 SUV, along with a C8 racer, a slew of engines, and even an F1 car.
The Spyker-y looking Lamborghini 5-95 by Zagato got me thinking. Sure, that car looks kind of weird to me, but truth be told, if you're car has to look like something, it should look like a Spyker. Because Spykers are some of the prettiest cars around.
Poor Spyker. All the tiny maker of crazy-yet-beautiful sports cars tried to do was save Saab. That's got them in a bit of trouble while they try and put the stunning B6 Venator into production. So they've started the Spyker Venator Bonds. Hey, it's better than cologne.
Whoever was responsible for picking the outfits for Jeep’s hostesses at the Geneva Motor Show did a spectacular job. They were by far the best-dressed women at the show, displaying a masterful blend of Americana with a European touch.
