Spyker Peking-Paris will drop V12 engine

Spyker D12

Spyker has been threatening to bring the Peking-Paris to market for over three years. Now rumors are going around that Spyker has got financial shot in the arm and has droped the V12 fror a 550+ hp supercharged V8. All this should get the Peking-Paris on the streets by this fall. A $300K SUV launched in this economy?! We’ll believe it when we see it (or drive it, please.)

Howe did it get its stragest name ever? The name Peking-to-Paris refers to the Peking to Paris endurance rally held in 1907 from Peking (now called Beijing) in China to Paris in France, in which an almost standard Spyker car participated, driven by Frenchman Ch. Goddard. The Spyker car came in second in the rally after a three month drive. Now that’s historical.

Just got some review here: The Spyker D12 Peking-to-Paris is a luxurious 4-door high performance crossover SUV from the Dutch car manufacturer Spyker Cars. The car was designed by Michiel van den Brink and introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. The car is currently still under development. After the introduction in Geneva, the model already received "well over 100 orders". Dropping V12 to V8 may not be a big deal here. The question is when will this car really go on production.
