Maybe this was the 'last' C8 Double12 at the moment this article was written (when was that?) And after that the Chinese car was build?

I love this Double 12's colours. Nice find guys!!

With the mentioned characteristics, it just cannot be the last Double 12 produced. Many things get written in car reviews, based on what one guy thinks he knows. I guess here they just got it wrong.

The colour setup would suggest that it's #059. What could have happened is that the automatic gearbox was installed recently.

Didn't you guys see 059 during your 2008 factory visit?? It might have been done then.

#059 has a Ruby Red interior, this one does not. On top of that, #059 was delivered with the Super Charger direct from the Spyker factory, hence the Super Charger badges on the bodywork. The Super Charger from the Double 12 of the article was added later, that's why there are no Super Charger badges but MTM stickers instead.

The supercharger in #059 was also from MTM if I remember correctly.

@bucciali, when we visited the factory we only was the engine of #059 in a corner. Do not remember if the supercharger was still on it.

Yes, as far as I know, all Super Charged Double 12's have MTM Super Chargers. And Yes, the Super Charger was still on the engine

Yes, I can see the difference now. So I would agree with it not being #059.

But then, could it be the unknown Russian one then? This one?

The interior colour would match. Then here the story is again with the automatic gearbox and the supercharger badges. But that can have changed later.

The color combination is indeed the same, also the dash is furbished with leather. The only difference being the badges and the automatic gearbox. I will ask our host on the upcoming factory visit
