I think so too, as #226 had the "normal" in stead of the black wheels.

IVR pointed me in this direction First select Spyker Corporate Photos and than take a closer look at Factory-14:



You will see the production line with some LM85's in different stages of completion, you can also see the station- and the VIN numbers on the different stations:

Stage 1/2: #237
Stage 3/4: #235
Stage 5/6: #234
Stage 7/8: #184
Stage 9/10: #231

Factory-14p.jpg

Which could indicate that the built order is: #231, #184, #234, #235 and #237 (IF this is an LM85 which is not sure). The date on the photo is may 19th 2009 and we know that LM no. 4 (#226) was built februari 2009 according to the VIN sticker and LM no. 6 is #230, which is not in this photograph, so the ones that are, were built after no. 6 (because these 5 shown on the photograph could not have been built between LM no.4 and no. 6) Assuming the LM 85's were built according to their LM no. I am not sure how long it takes to complete the built of an LM85 but I think these were built not long after #230 and could therefore be LM no. 7 till no. 11. I know #184 does have the LM badge on the dash...

Thanks for your post LavioletteGT2R. Maybe I can add something else.

#231 was a factory demonstrator. As such, I think it was this car that did a small press tour in Sweden after the Saab acquisition. Here is an example of a test drive. One of the picture shows this:



Showing that this one is #07/24. So I think #231 is 07/24: confirming your thoughts.

Thanx IVR! Quite some mileage on the car, more than you would expect from just a couple of testdrives, so maybe again for sale or used as a demo...

According to these videos there should be a second RHD LM85.
