Just had to make sure, because Victor berated me for putting mine on wrong

That's funny as the steeringwheels mounted by the factory are not done so the same way. Some have the wrapped sides up / down and some have these at the sides where your hands are. So it seems that there is not a 'mandatory' way to do it and that it's more like personal preference.

That is also how I heared it from Spyker mechanics.

Especially when you have the leather in a light color, I would want the wrapped parts on the top and bottom part of the steering wheel. The smooth part is way easier to clean thoroughly.

So true. I don't have a Spyker, but I do have off white leather in my daily driver. Looks still brand new

Unfortunately one Spyker owner had placed a deposit on a wheel, but due to other priorities he can not buy the wheel anymore. So there is 1 last steering wheel for sale !

The wheel wasnt upholstered yet, but it was anticipate to be a lambo replacement.. but it will also fit a Lotus one.
