Today I visited the Spyker factory (THANX RIJK!!!!!)

Today I got a "guided tour" at the Spyker Headquarters! Victor Muller himself explained the work at the headquarters and showed us the racing department where the GTR cars are prepared, the specials department where Spykers are made according to special customers requests, the engine department where the engines are built and tested. It was simply AWESOME!

And then we went to the factory where the "normal" Spykers are produced. In the factory I saw more than 10 Spykers being assembled at the moment and some couple more that were finished and waiting to pass quality inspection. Everything about the Spyker products and the Spyker factory "oozes" quality, detail and craftsmanship. It's unbelievable what the guys at Spyker are doing. Really!

Thanks to Victor for the personal tour and the passionate way of how he tells about Spykercars. It's fascinating!

Rijk, thanx a thousand times for organizing the tour! This was simply brilliant and I will treasure this for a LONG LONG TIME!

Mel, great you got to visit the factory!!

and thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

I hope I can make it out there soon too, when I'm back in Holland again.

Nice to see another white Spyker. I really really like them.

And Pterps was right: there is another orange one in the making!

Looks like you had a great time Mel! Good to see several Spykers being produced. Not only Spyders but Laviolettes as well. Excellent!

There were actually a lot of Laviolettes. Almost half of the new cars. The Florida dealer, who was also present at the factory, is only ordering the glass-roof coupe version. He thinks that in the Florida climate, you need a n enclosed air-conditioned car. He was picking a number of color combinations to pre-order for his dealership.

Mel,

You are very welcome. It was good that Peter was taking care of the Florida dealer, so that you could get the full tour from Victor himself.

Accidently we did get to hear some classified stuff, but we are tight lipped.

Even though I wasn't at Spyker cars today I had a fabulous day as well. Simply because a very important person really liked the design of this Spyker forum. Even though I didn't receive the compliment directly (Rijk passed the compliments), it really means a lot to me.
