Don't worry about the performance figures. They were probably written down before the engine was actually fitted. So only of theoretical value only.

yes but you will lack out on the Spyker experience :P

But about the acceleration times: I reckon it all comes down to the chosen gear ratios.

There are dealers in Latvia and in the Ukraine. I would think that Moskow will follow soon.

With the new GM V8 engine, you can expect 600+HP, so 0-60MPH will dramatically improve.

Last I heard was 275K Dollars + taxes (but that is old info).

Today a Dutch carmagazine (AutoWeek) released some more information about the D8. Although most of the information isn't really new it is nice to see it confirmed again.

- The price of the D8 will be around 235.000 euro (excluding taxes);
- The weight will be 1.850 kg;
- The D8 will have an American V8 with a supercharger and 550 hp, more information will follow at the end of august;
- The engine will be as far backwards as possible, for an optimale weight distribution;
- In 2009 Spyker wants to produce 100 D8's;
- After 2009 250-300 D8's a year will be produced.

Can they build more than 100 Spykers (100 D8's on top of the Ailerons) in 2009 in their excisting facility or do Spyker have to move or expand?

I think they might be moving to this: http://www.spykerowner.com/forum/fac...re-spyker.html building much sooner than I thought!
