WANTED ! Spyker C8 Laviolette (Spyder?)

I recently was invited by Manhattan Motorcars to test drive the Spyker's on the track in Monticello, NY. I have to admit, I have owned a vast variety of Exotic Cars, 5 Lambos, 3 Ferraris, 4 Porsches, Nissan GTR, Vette Z06, Lotus, and even an Ariel Atom 2, etc etc .. you get the idea.

Well I absolutely fell in love with the Spyker! The rawness, handling, exhaust note, interior, felt like I was driving a Breitling.

I own Exotics Rally, which is a website member community in the NY tri-state region and being the owner I always like to have crazy, unique cars. I am ready to add a Spyker to my stable and just lost a deal on one in Florida on a Laviolette. That being said... who wants to part with one?

I am a cash buyer, no financing needed, I would prefer a coupe so I can drive it year round, the convertible IMO doesn't look very sexy with the top up...

I am trying to stay as close to 100k as possible, naturally they haven't dropped that far yet, but I am open to suggestions, ideas, and more...

I have a tax credit through a dealer 'friend' of mine so the transaction can happen very quickly, money in-house ready to burn

Thank you for reading my post, and if someone wants to convince me to buy a Spyder please chime in as to why I should.... THANKS !!!

I think you will have a tough time getting one for $100k... but good luck with your search!

Seth,

Welcome to SpykerOwner.

I'm glad you enjoyed Monticello, so did I.

no way for $100K...why not put the cash down for what you can afford and finance the remainder.

I am a realist and understand that I won't find one for 100k, I am willing as said before to step up my game, I have a collection of cars, and right now it was opportunity time in the real estate market so that's where I focused my "financial energy."

As far as financing, I don't believe in it, I pay cash for all of my cars, no bills...

I see you have a vert, any pros - cons of the vert vs the coupe?

I feel the same way, if I can't pay cash for my toys I just don't do it.

I just like the look of the open top C8, but to be honest I wouldn't mind having both I think if you could find either you would be happy, plus as a bonus this is a nice little community to belong to.
