Thanks for the info on both cars Netburner. I'm not sure whether this really is goodwood green... (like on #036). Looks like a different color to me...

Thanks Matthias!

A few very interesting things about this VIN:

1. This car is a 2010, not a 2011 like I would have expected.

2. Even though the assembly plant (10th digit) is C for Coventry, England, the VIN still begins with XL9. I wonder if Ailerons will be able to keep using XL9 as long as Spyker has a base in the Netherlands?

3. Looking at the U.S. NHTSA website, you can find VIN decoding documents submitted by various manufacturers. Here we can see that this car has dual airbags, but still not the advanced airbags that will be required for U.S. compliance going forward. (If this Spyker continues with adherence to this document, U.S. Ailerons with advanced airbags will have four B's in a row in their VINs! )

Today I sat in the Aileron at the Geneva Motorshow. And I really love this car. A lot of the new details like the touch pad to navigate through the stereo / navigation is very cool. And the openings in the rear windows are great. I always loved them on the Laviolette and missed them on the Aileron. But thankfully the production model has them.

Here you can see that the rear windshield is now able to open up so that you can reach the engine. Pretty amazing, taking account that the the air tube runs over it.

- #040 Double 12 spyder
- #259 aileron
- #186 laviolette
- #170 (probably) Laviolette
