Spyker continuing work on D12 Peking to Paris luxury SUV image

Despite Spyker’s management reshuffles and purchase of Saab, the Dutch sports car company remains confident of launching several new models of its own in coming years, including the D12 Peaking to Paris.

Speaking at the 2010 edition of the Geneva conference, Saab Spyker CEO Victor Muller revealed that the new facilities owned by Saab, including the Trollhattan plant, will help Spyker release new models, including the bespoke SUV, but declined to reveal any details.

The monster SUV, which uses a Volkswagen W12 engine ( Geneva version ) and shares the ostentatious design with which the brand has become synonymous, has a claimed 0-60mph time of 5.0sec and a top speed of 185mph.

Regarding its final name we are not quite sure about it! The name might change from D12 (12 means that it will carry a V12 engine) into D8, because it might use the 6.2-liter V8 engine found also on the Cadillac CTS-V.

Spyker has previously said the D12 will cost £186,000.
