IIRC, Amzamz reached 171 MPH (275 Km/h) on the German Autobahn. He recorded it on the GPS, so it must have been true speed

I, of course, have never been over 55 MPH

I am still waiting for someone to beat that (GPS or official clocking, please). Should be easy, as I have done mine on public motorways in traffic... and I have the old body / no race trim (scary aerodynamics!!!). Be careful!

(since my speedo shows typically 10% higher, the reading would have been 306 km/h, but of course I didn't look....)

I would just like to share that #148 is now under my supervision here at Spyker of Cleveland. This is great being able to find out the history of this car. I never would have thought that it was used in a TV show.




...the cars are in a temporary facility while my new showroom is being built. It will have a proper home soon enough.

hahaha yes. The Spyker is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Honestly for me its like being a kid at Christmas again. I just graduated from the Ohio State University and this is my first full time job out of school and here I am driving/selling Spykers, Porsches, and Lotuses. And I'm just having a blast, I love these cars, I love being around them, I love driving them, I honestly believe in my product, I work 70 hours a week and I love every second of it.

300 kph in an Aileron test car, ticket to prove it, you must love the French police as they invited us for tea afterwards...

Invited to tea . . . ? Wow, that is a first, JP.

I consider it a victory if, after getting pulled over, the officer and I part company without rancor.

It was a nice ending to the ticket, Sander was also present. It happened just outside of Monaco in the French countryside, the Police were amazed with the SPyker....ticket rescinded
