Uncertainty overshadowed Dutch sports car maker Spyker over the last few years, and that’s something the brand is hoping to change.
Saab/Spyker CEO Victor Muller has confirmed that select Saab dealerships will sell exotic models from the Dutch sports car maker. In an interview with Bloomberg, Muller commented that Spyker will look to expand its dealership network (made mostly of exotic car dealerships like Bentley) from 35 to 60 this year. The plan is to then increase that number to 90 Spyker dealerships worldwide by the end of 2011.
Spyker’s latest model is the C8 Aileron, which makes 400-hp and can hit 62-mph in just 4.5 seconds.
In addition Muller commented that future Spyker models, known for their bespoke nature (and Audi-sourced engines), will begin using Saab parts and Saab engineering.
Earlier this year, Spyker purchased the Saab brand from General Motors, saving the Swedish automaker from liquidation.
