August 29, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Dutch automaker is preparing to introduce new models as early as next year. The company’s management is confident that Spyker has coped with all the difficulties and is ready to make a name for itself in the supercar market.

The Dutch automaker Spyker spoke about the cooperation that will allow the brand to get down to work and launch three car innovations at once, however, this will happen only in 2021.

According to the foreign portal Carscoops.com, Spyker Group has enlisted the support of the motorsport company BR Engineering, SMP Racing and marketing company Milan Morady. BR Engineering and SMP Racing are owned by Russian oligarch Boris Rotenberg, while Milan Morady is owned by his business partner Mikhail Pessis.

The new collaboration will finally help the Dutch to bring the Spyker C8 Preliator sports car to the assembly line, which debuted back in 2017 at the Geneva Motor Show. It will later be joined by the D8 Peking-to-Paris SUV and the B6 Venator concept coupe.

As a reminder, Spyker faced serious financial difficulties after buying Saab from General Motors in 2010. This deal led to the bankruptcy of the company. After five years, the Dutch returned to duty, but financial difficulties did not leave them.

Meanwhile, the date of the premiere of the new hybrid supercar from McLaren was announced. The novelty will be based on the latest platform – in the future, it will go to all new machines of the company. One of the advantages of such a “cart” is carbon fiber: supercars will become lighter and safer.
