Spyker to unveil redesigned D8 P2P at 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Anita Panait, on August 17, 2013

Spyker will unveil a redesigned D8 Peking-to-Paris super-sports utility vehicle at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show -- eight years after the original concept made its debut at the Swiss expo. Spyker found a new momentum to finish the ‘P2P’ project after forming a joint venture with Youngman. Spyker contributed the intellectual property rights and technology of the P2P, while Youngman invested EUR25 million to complete the project.

Spyker chief executive Victor Muller told Autocar that although they have already completed engineering the P2P, they still need to build the tools and put the super-SUV into production. Muller expects to sell a maximum of 1000 examples of the D8 Peking-to-Paris premium SUV in emerging markets like China and Russia.

He noted that so far, no carmaker has marketed a mid-engined super-sports vehicle with four doors and four-wheel drive. He remarked that while the D8 P2P will be “very usable,” it will be also be a “beast.” Spyker will start focusing on the P2P after it has signed off the B6 Venator, a 375bhp V6-powered sports car it unveiled at the 2013 Geneva motor show.

Spyker will roll out the Porsche 911-sized B6 Venator to the market in 2014. B6 Venator’s development has been one of the one of the motivating factors for the redesigned P2P. Spyker will outsource the production of the B6 since its Zeewolde headquarters, which currently build the C8 Aileron, does not have enough capacity for additional output. [source: Autocar]
