Tracing its heritage to the long-vanished Dutch automaker of the same name, the current-day incarnation of Spyker was founded in 1999 by Victor Mullen and Martin de Bruijn with the intent of restoring the iconic badge to its former glory. Carrying on its namesake's tradition of quality, handcrafted construction and innovative, aeronautically inspired design, Spyker has quickly gained recognition for its elegant yet forward-thinking bespoke supercars. True to its motto, "Nulla tenaci invia est via" ("for the tenacious no road is impassable"), Spyker has forged ahead on a path of its own making — and continues to grace us with some of the world's most sought-after vehicles.
Spyker D8 Peking-to-Paris
Dubbed an SSUV, or "Super Sport Utility Vehicle," by Spyker, the D8 Peking-to-Paris blurs the lines between sport ute and sports coupe. Designed as an all-terrain vehicle that doesn't skimp on performance, the D8 boasts a top speed of 170 mph and a sub-five-second 0-60 time.
What the heck is Spyker? Well, it's a Dutch sports
car company that makes perhaps the most exotic things
to come out of Holland since Famke Janssen. With a
wild and sexy exterior, and a stunning hand-crafted
leather and metal interior, there's few cars that
can attract as much attention as a Spyker.
