Spyker will show a concept version of its 2016 crossover next year

Article by Christian A., on March 24, 2013

The revival plans of supercar specialist Spyker will include the introduction of a crossover vehicle concept next year. At the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, Edmunds learned that this model will start production in 2016. This crossover will be a spin-off of the Spyker D8 Paris-to-Peking crossover that was seen first at the 2006 Geneva Auto Show as the Spyker D8.

The production version will not be as luxuriously finished as the concept. But like all Spyker vehicles, it will be highly exclusive. The Spyker B6 Venator Concept, which is poised to go up against the Porsche 911, made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show. Spyker hopes to make the B6 Venator affordable, divulging that when it goes on sale, its price point will be more accessible at about $125,000 to $150,000.

The B6 Venator will start selling in the U.S. market in spring 2014. For its revival, Spyker is focusing on three models: “the new B6 Venator, the older $245,000 Spyker C8 Aileron, the supercar with Audi V8 power, and the upcoming crossover.” Spyker has grand plans.

Since the Aileron was presented in 2009, it has reported sales of about 300 units. The B6 Venator is meant to increase the yearly output of the company to about 2,500 when the lower-volume high-performance SUV is included in the equation. The newly launched Venator is believed to be the key to Spyker's revival and growth.

John Walton, Spyker's commercial officer, said that the front-engined, V6 sports car is meant to give Spyker dealerships a less expensive model to sell and so that suppliers will have adequate business to make custom component development for the company more financially appealing.

The small, publicly listed company is still mostly unheard of and had nearly ceased to exist due to the worldwide recession as well as the short time that it had owned the now-defunct automaking unit of Saab. Victor Muller, the head of Spyker, had worked hard to acquire Saab from General Motors but he ultimately failed to keep Saab going.
