The only problem I have is that it's first Titled on 2/6/2008.
Makes sense.

My car was the Spyker press car. Nobody has been careful with that one

However, it is different than a Ferrari. With the Audi mechanicals you not only have a sturdier set-up, it's also cheaper to service.

In other words, I will let other people drive my Spyker, but not my Ferrari

I know.
I already had contact with the seller. He was not entirely honest with his answers I think. After I told him some issues he did not respond anymore.

VIN: XL9GB11H76Z363085
First Title: 09/21/2007 Beverly Hills
Second Title: 03/27/2008 New Jersey

The asking price is too high compared with a totaly new one I think.
You know the difference.

Lowering the MSRP price depreciated the earlier cars dramatically. Some owners might not have come to grips with the new price level.

It can be that he didn't knew about this but why did he gave me a wrong vin number, and why did he tell me that he could not make a picture of this vin number?

I also have other information but I don't want it to be public because it might is not 100% true.

I had the chance to take #94 for a test drive when I was in Phoenix. It felt like it had WAY more than 3500k on the ODO! The driver seat was worn, the glove box handle had fallen off, alignment was off, brakes felt worn, Burn marks in the headlights. It's listed for $165,000USD thats a bit to much for the problems it has.

Rhyno,

Thanks for your information. Sounds not so good. I'm glad to hear this info.
I do not have the intention to pay the asking price of 165K. Do you think that it is possible to repair al those things or do you think this is not a car that you should buy at all?

I just got back from my visit to the factory in Zeewolde.

I have a number of questions asked about the #94 and the C8 Spyder in general.
In the factory were two C8 Spyders. The #118 gray / yellow was one of them. what a beautiful combination.
Furthermore, I have seen the new Aileron and the SUV. Especially the Aileron is a super nice car. On photos I don't know what to think but when you see this car "live" I think it's one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen.

Some pictures of #118

It belongs to a friend of Rijk and is currently in the factory to be updated to MY2008 specs (if I'm correct).
