More #001 pictures

The first two are from an early Spyker brochure. The interior looks a lot like the interior of the one that pterps made photo's of. The exterior color is different though. The fifth one is a photo taken at the Birmingham auto show in 2000. The third one is taken from an auto show in 2001. This one looks pretty similar to the photo of the Birmingham show in 2000, but is different, check the wheels for instance. The fourth one is taken at the 2001 Concours Pebble Beach. Now the exterior color is black just like the photo i posted earlier.

All of these photographs should be #001 since this was the only C8 Spyder in existence in 2000 and 2001, according to figures provided by Spykercars (see earlier post).

So it changed quite a lot!

But hey, it's a development car, if it stayed the same in two years, something would be very wrong!!

I must admit the grey-blue colour looks pretty nice

From a Spyker prospectus:

Production history and purpose

...In 2001, two cars have been produced, one Spyker C8 Double12 R and one Spyker C8 Laviolette...

...In 2002, Spyker produced three cars. One Spyker C8 Spyder was sold to a customer, one Spyker C8 Double12 S was used as a development car, and one Spyker C8 Double12 R was used for races at Le Mans in 2002...

...In 2003, Spyker has taken sixteen cars into production, of which twelve were finished before the year end. Six finished Spyker C8 Spyders were committed as development cars to enhance the certification program for the U.S. Three Spyker C8 Spyders were sold to customers. One finished Spyker C8 Double12 R (used in 2003 for Le Mans racing) and one Spyker C8 Spyder are used as demonstrator models. At the end of the year 2003 Spyker had one Spyker C8 Spyder ready for delivery. Three Spyker C8 Spyders and one Spyker C8 Double12 S were finished for more than 75 per cent...

If you watch the attachment you can see that in 2000, there was only one car build. That would be the first C8 Spyder, it is listed as development car. The next C8 Spyder was build in 2002. So there was only one C8 Spyder in 2000 and 2001. Since it was a development car we can assume that in a time span of two years it changed a lot.

The photograph AX lover is referring to is a photo from a brochure [feb. 2004]and was taken in 2001 so this car has to be #001 because there was no other C8 Spyder at that time! On this photo the car looks black / black (see attachment). But it's hard to tell from a photo.

Let's take a look at the fotographs posted by pterps. The photographs are taken in 2002. So it can be #001 or the second C8 Spyder that was build. Since that was the fourth (in total) car build by Spyker that would be #004. On the windscreen of the Spyder where pterps is sitting in (i'm jealous!) you can see a Le Mans sticker. So the car probably has been to the 24 hours of Le Mans. Since it seems more likely to go to Le Mans with a factory car instead of the first car you sold to a customer i think it is save to assume that it is indeed #001. On the photos this one looks green / green.

But as i said, it is sometimes hard to tell from a photo and since #001 was a development car we can assume that in a time span of two years it changed a lot.

I have attached some photo's of #001 from the brochure and the CD that comes with it. (It is basically the same photo only in the brochure it explicitely says that the car on the photo is #001)
Geez Columbo... I think my girlfriend may be cheating on me. Can you dig something up for me? lol

In fact i found out that your girlfriend is cheating on you a long time ago but decided not to tell you. But now you're asking: She feels neglected because you are spending too much time on your Spyker!

Again, well spotted! Just checked all my #008 pics and on none of them you can see these alloys. I agree with you, they look really good. Wonder how long they were on #008....
