Many have thought that Spyker’s purchase of Saab was done solely for the purpose of saving the beleaguered Swedish brand from getting its head chopped off. Turns out, there’s more to this than meets the eye.

According to Bloomberg, Spyker may be looking at the prospect of increasing, possibly even doubling, their dealerships all over the world by using Saab’s vast network to channel those rare Spyker machines to a bigger market. That’s great news for us, especially since Spyker has never been known as a high-volume manufacturer.

Currently, Spyker has 35 dealerships all over the world while only producing roughly the same amount, maybe a little higher, of Spyker cars in a year. Now that they have new networks to explore, Spyker is toying with the idea of not only increasing their dealerships to about 60 on the planet, but also ramping up more units to sell as a result of the increased options available to them.

Even though its far from a confirmed report, we’ll be the first to tell you that we can never have enough of those C8 Ailerons prowling the streets of the world.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Not only that. They also need to see where they sell more. This is a good marketing strategy.

If you’re at lost, then best thing to do is to go back from the beginning. I guess this might help them to sell more.

It seems that the Spyker is looking to expand their dealership network (made mostly of exotic car dealerships like Bentley) from 35 to 60 this year. Well, I think this is a good idea for its success
