Spyker signs agreement with China’s largest auto importer to sell Spyker cars in China
If you needed any proof that China has become the number one auto market in the world, consider that even the niche supercar makers of the western world have all taken the first steps in entering the same Chinese market that moved past the US last year as the auto market equivalent of nirvana.
The latest automaker to begin entering the Chinese auto market is Spyker, after the Swedish company signed an agreement with the China Automobile Trading Company - the number one importer of foreign cars in the country - to become the official importer of Spyker vehicles in China. As is customary in China, the agreement is still subject to government approval before the deal is officially sealed.
Spyker CEO, Victor Muller, is optimistic that in a country that accounted for 13.64 million cars sold in 2009, there should be plenty of room for Spyker to sell its vehicular fleet which includes supercars, luxury SUVs, and luxury commercial vehicles.
