The Spyker company is founded by two Dutch brothers, Hendrik Jan and Jacobus Spijker, who are blacksmiths by profession. At first, the ambitious brothers concentrate on building and maintaining carriages in Hilversum, The Netherlands.
The Spijker brothers built their first Benz-engined motorcar with which they win immediate acclaim for the craftsmanship of its bodywork.
In 1925, 45 years after it was first formed, the original Spyker Company ceased to exist.
Seventy-five years after the original company disappeared, the brand was resurrected. In 2000 the new Spyker Cars NV unveiled the Spyker C8 Spyder at the Birmingham Motor Show. The Spyker C8 Double12 R, Spyker’s Le Mans endurance racer, was launched in 2001 during the IAA in Frankfurt. A street-legal version of the C8 Double12 R was introduced in 2002: the C8 Double12 S.
Two years later Spyker made an initial public offering (IPO) and on 27 May 2004 the company was listed at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange (ticker symbol SPYKR) Euronext Amsterdam.
In 2005, the Spyker C8 Spyder was chosen by the luxury lifestyle magazine Robb Report as one of its ultimate gift recommendations. The annual ‘Robb Report Ultimate Gift Guide’ features only twenty-one extraordinary gifts with several once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and on this occasion represented a record combined value of more than $750 million.
The production version of the Spyker C8 Aileron, the second generation Spyker sportscar made its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Later in the year the Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder concept was unveiled at the globally celebrated Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in Monteray, California. Spyker Squadron enjoyed a fabulous season, finishing third in the overall standings of the Le Mans Series and fifth in class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
After a few quiet years where the brand was focused on other projects, March 2013 marks the global resurgence of the Spyker brand with the introduction of the Spyker B6 Venator Concept, introduced at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show. The introduction of the Spyker B6 Venator Concept marks the beginning of a new era for the brand, one that will include a significant increase in production led by a management team that has never been stronger.
