Spyker Owner Survives Attempted Assassination

Russian Billionaire Alexander Antonov, the owner of Dutch supercar maker Spyker, has survived an assassination attempt.

The incident happened outside Anatonov’s house in Moscow where he was shot at 18 times. He was struck five times in the stomach, once in the chest and another time on one if his fingers, which was apparently blown completely off.

One of Antonov’s security guards was also wounded in the leg during the incident.

His condition is not life threatening and while the police have begun a search for his attacker no arrests have yet to be made.

Antonov’s net worth is estimated to be roughly $3.5 billion.

Spyker recently launched it’s latest car, the all-new C8 Aileron (pictured above) at the Geneva Auto Show.
