Some small updates:

#024: please add that this car is known at Carfax with two different VINs: XL9GA11A35Z363024 (1 record) and XL9AA11G24Z363024 (2 records).

#026: not in the list yet, but confirmed by Carfax with two different VINs: XL9GA11A75Z363026 (2 records) and XL9AA11G64Z363026 (14 records).

#031: again, please list both VINs confirmed by Carfax: XL9GA11A05Z363031 (2 records) and XL9AA11GX4Z363031 (2 records).

#033: again, please list both VINs confirmed by Carfax: XL9GA11A45Z363033 (2 records) and XL9AA11G34Z363033 (1 record).

As mentioned before (there were already some discussions about it), two VINs might indeed be possible: for example, the VIN is placed at several locations (windscreen, doors, etc.), so an error might have caused the differences between those VINs. Besides that, the car might have given an update (for example, airbags or so), which might have resulted in a new VIN (with a new "Model Year", which might make it legal in other states).

As far as I have been able to determine, Spykers were certified for U.S. sale for the 2005 model year, in mid-2005. However, we know that many early Spykers were here before 2005; these may have been press cars and demos and the such, likely here on manufacturer or dealer plates. Additionally, I remember seeing an article in Car and Driver about Spyker that I believe was before 2005, with pictures of a black C8 Spyder in San Francisco (for the life of me I cannot find this issue now).

Perhaps these duplicate VINs were changed at some point from 2004's to 2005's, in order to make U.S. registration possible? Just a guess.

Also see the situation of Aileron #252, which is a 2009 prototype, yet has a service record on CarFax, from its time here on press tours and such. So it is possible for a car to have records on CarFax, even if it is not registered. In fact, Koenigsegg #058 appears on CarFax, and it is not even in the U.S. yet!

Excellent work as always, Edvar!

Same with Aileron #255 (XL9BA12G79Z363255) ...

Hello Franz,

Welcome to the forum. It indeed sounds mysterious if both the papers and the owner are missing.
