Before I bought mine, I entertained doubts about the future of the company, the availability of service and parts going forward, etc.

But once I drove the C8 Spyder, and knew that I wanted it, all those doubts went away. The car is mechanically fairly straightforward, so a good mechanic can service it. The aluminum body may be repaired by an good body shop.

I had some concerns about the car's performance and power vs. it's competitors, but I addressed those with a VF Engineering supercharger to add 100 hp at the rear wheels.

I will never regret purchasing my Spyker. It is frankly the steal of the supercar world.

Well stated Justice. Much of what you state is the reason a car of this caliber can be had for such a discount. I'm guessing many potential buyers are scared away based on the newness of Spyker, uncertainty about the future of the brand, lack of marketing, less well known than Lambo or Ferrari, etc.

I recall first setting eyes on a Spyker at Manhattan Motors and said to myself: "One day I will own a Spyker". Absolutely fell in love with everything about the car. Also love the fact that my local mechanic already knows the engine quite well and nothing as of yet seems outside his realm of experience.

One of few cars I plan to keep for more than a year or two

Interestingly, this 2010 only has two vents, and instead, what I suspect, a passenger airbag....

Hard to predict but it only has 725 miles on the odo and prices have gone up lately so maybe $175,000 - $225,000

As it turns out I was to conservative: $210,000 - $235,000 (Note the explanation of the VIN, interesting!)
