Spyker D12 Peking-to-Paris Concept, a prototype that we anticipate the first crossover Spyker.
The long-awaited first crossover Spyker is closer to. In the revival of the company, the brand has decided to bet on a market niche that is booming with the power to consolidate his return to the car market. And although at first everything pointed to that would be a model all-electric, everything seems to point that, at least in a first moment, it will not be so.
The first crossover Spyker will make use of a V12 engine and the production version would be just around the corner. So, some reports point to a possible presentation this year during the Auto show in Los Angeles. Its design will be inspired by a prototype shown by the company, already a few years ago. The Spyker Peking-to-Paris Concept.
Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker, has already commented on this fact a while ago. Is more, Muller emphasizes that in Spyker “anticipated ten years” to a segment that today has established itself with numerous proposals.
The first crossover Spyker would use a V12 engine instead of a Plug-in Hybrid.
“it has Always been my desire to be able to do this car. You could say that we anticipate our time ten years. Today there are few SUVs of luxury that are on the market, but by that time the proposals were very slim”.
When asked about the possibility of this crossover comes to having a version fully electric, said it would make a lot more sense than in a supercar or high performance car, as in the segment SUV or Crossover, the electrical energy is a lot more “saleable”.
¿closes the door to an electric crossover? No. Spyker ensures that we continue to work to develop an alternative power that is competitive in a market niche that, to this day, is very elitist. There are not many manufacturers that have decided to offer an option in this aspect. It is for this reason that we should not be surprised if, after the arrival of the crossover Spyker with V12 engine, we see an electric option.
