#??? C8 Spyker Green/Goodwood Green RHD

I have seen pictures of this C8 Spyker before but I could not find it in the VIN List.

These pictures were taken on the VIP-parking during the 24hours of LeMans in 2005.

Pictures of the same car at autogespot.nl

My guess is that this is the later RIO rental car. Green over green with the alcantara seat inserts and dash.

Sorry, could not find the thread.

The RIO car is #036 (http://www.spykerowner.com/forum/uno...ood-green.html), the exterior color of that car is Jet Black.

I think this one is Black as well but it looks Green because of the sun shining on it.

The RIO car has got louvres above the front wheels.

You´re right it´s not the RIO car.

Jeffrey, You have a good point with the louvres in the fenders, but is it possible that this was altered? The RIO car has #036 and is listed for sale at Broughtons as Model Year 2007 (http://www.broughtons.co.uk/detail/s...470&vidindex=1). The low VIN suggests a much earlier production year, like for instance 2005. Could it have been considerably updated to justify altering the Model Year?

I found these photographs of the crashed C8 Spyder in Belgium, believed to be #030:

Spyker%20Crash%2013%20A.jpg Spyker%20Crash%2022%20augustus%202.jpg

The first one is just after it has been crashed. The second one after restoration. Look at the fenders...

So certain parts can be exchanged apparantly. I think therefore, that the Spyder in this thread is, most likely, the RIO car afterall.

Edit: Jeffrey is right; the car in the first post is not #036 (The ex Rio Prestige car) but #022
