Spyker C8 Spyder Battery Question

Hi, I currently have a Interstate MTP91 battery in my Spyker C8 Spyder. I'm looking to replace the battery with a smaller battery or one of comparable size with more power. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Not sure which brand battery the Spykers originally are equipped with but I think a Varta battery. Anyway, the specs should be: 75Ah/720A(EN), ETN 575121072 or equal, p/n 0061400010

Can you maybe tell which Spyker you have?

The MTP91 is the correct battery for US cars. It only needs a different clamp to secure the different foot. The Spyker is very sensitive to to the battery "fresness". Often small electric glitches go away with a new battery, even when the battery seems OK.

The MTP 91 is no longer manufactured. Anyone has any other suggestion? The interstate suggested replacement one is half an inch too tall.
