Spyker is the most
famous Dutch name in international car history and the new
models offer the ultimate in craftsmanship and exclusivity.
Both cars, powered by
the Audi 4.2 litre all-aluminium V8 engine, are mid-engined
sports cars with finish and final specifications of each unit
tailored to meet the personal taste and ergonomic requirements
of the owner/driver who will have tailor-made quality seats in
exclusive Connolly leather trim.
Dave Anderson, a partner
at Anderson & Ryan, said:
“It was a privilege
to be invited to produce the seating and trim for the show
launch vehicles which created a considerable impact on the
specialist sports car buyers.”
The cars are being built
in limited numbers with ten of each model available this year
and 25 of each in 2002.
Whilst in production the
prospective owner will have exclusive access to a Spyker car
website and be able to follow the build of his or her own car.
There is also a second
Coventry connection for the Spyker cars as the body panels are
produced by Coventry Prototype Panels.
Anderson & Ryan,
formed in 1982, has doubled its employees over the last five
years and now has 40 staff in a purpose built design and
manufacturing facility on Coventry Business Park.
Its customers include
