When #034 received the chassis of #006, #006 apparantly got chasis #034 as this photograph suggests:

Apparantly #034 needed a new chassis. I don't know why but it probably was damaged somehow. #006 was no longer actively campaigned at that moment but only used as a static display (disguised as a #009 Orange sponsored look-alike, note the black windows and the absence of the official Le Mans 24 hour stickers as opposed to the real #009) and because this was the first race chassis it was still very close (if not exactly the same) to chassis used for the Double 12S streetcar (later chassis #009 and #019 allready used carbon fibre, note the difference between both frontsplitters for instance). The handle of the glovecompartment on early photographs of the Duo-penotti Double 12 clearly shows 034 engraved so this one must have had VIN #034 initially. The first Double 12R was definitely #006. When the chassis were swapped the VIN numbers must have been swapped also as later photographs show a normal (without VIN engaved) glovecompartment handle. At the last factory visit, the Duo-penotti Double 12 was also there and I saw blue crates with #006 on them standing beside the car. So to answer your question: #034 needed a new chassis and #006 did not really need it anymore. Apparantly the chassis of #034 was still good enough to fit under the racecar so that it could still be used as a static display I guess.

... and how do you break an almost new chassis? Without our SpykerOwner community, and without car spotters noticing...? Any accident with a Spyker gets headlines of a newspaper! I still don't understand. And a damage to the chassis, but not to the bodywork seems impossible to me... /// MYSTERIOUS !!!

I don't know the reason but probably not because of a big accident, otherwise we would have known for sure indeed It is not likely either that it just fell apart, because these chassis have to be pretty strong because even you were not able to break it yet

P.S. Bodywork can be repaired or even replaced without the need of changing the VIN number.
