Spyker: the ultimate poseurmobile?

An intentionally provocative statement, yes. Yes, they saved Saab. Yes, they have a history in aircraft. Yes, they briefly fielded an F1 team (however short-lived). But when we see garish examples like this, or contemplate its average customer, or look inside their cabin, we can’t help but wonder. What do you think?

  1. I remember one year at the Gumball Dennis Rodman showed up in his Spyker. That said it all to me and the type of person inclined to buy this car – at least it gives guys who would normally buy a Porsche or Ferrari another opttion.

    For my money I would stick to the 458 Italia or a GT2 in this price range…Perhaps an Aston if I wanted luxury.

  2. Agreed. Spyker looks like it is designed by a little kid and dressed up by a jewelry designer.

  3. The cars are mediocre as far as performance goes. You don’t buy a Spyker for that though, you buy one because they’re a different way to spend a quarter of a million, and for the craftsmanship and attention to detail. They’re a bit offbeat and eccentric, always interesting and full of character.

  4. Its glad that it exists. And yes it is the ultimate poseur-mobile.

  5. to be honest, i want to believe blufaction, always have… but the evidence seems to speak otherwise. offbeat, eccentric, full of character… all great things, but i find it hard to apply them to spyker. i think they can describe triumphs. or austin-healeys.
