    I wish I could start it with a bang, but I can't. Absolutely nothing interesting driving around downtown right now.

    WHAT!? Insane!!! I've never seen a Spyker in the wild. By far one of my favorite cars.

    This thread needs some photos!

    Yeah that's it! The most beautiful part of the car is the interior.

    No, that's an old C8, he says he spotted an Aileron which is the newer one, which is sadly very ugly compared to this one :(

    Dan, when I was in London, I got so sick of the same boring cars (DB9s, Continental GTs, F430s... I love them all but there are just too many in London) that I stopped carrying around my camera. On my last night there, I finally saw a black C8 Spyder drive by and have nothing but the memory :( :( :(

    Foley has a Spyker C8 parked in front ,the Aileron was later in service there (MFR plates).
    I should've asked them if they were keeping it.

    DISAGREE! I love the Aileron! Much more aggressive looking IMO.


    Sorry to hear about the black C8. I had a similar situation when I went to California. Got tired of the Rolls, Astons and Bentleys. Went to lunch, sat outside and had a view of the street. I left my camera in the car. A Gallardo Spyder, LP640 Versace, F430 Spider and yellow Enzo drive right by me... :( No idea where they were going or where they came from.

    Where is this dealer? I prefer the new Aileron's headlights to the older model.

    I'm going to test drive the Aileron tomorrow,will take my camera (if I don't forget).
    Btw,saw the new Mulsanne tonight,looks much better then in the pics.
    Still,left me a bit underwhelmed,nice car ,imposing size,well put together and from behind very Flying Spur like.
    Will wait and see the Ghost before ordering anything.

    Wow! Very cool, please do take your camera. I'd love to hear what you think of the car! Interesting you should say that abot the Mulsanne. I really need to see one in person to make a decision. The pictures scared me a bit. Did you see it at Foley? I need to take a trip there very soon. Not too far from me either. :)

    Not at Foley.
    Bentley had a special event downtown showing the Mulsanne (same car from Pebble Beach).
    Front looks really good (does not look very well in pics).
    Btw,shouldn't you be in bed at 1am?

    Nice shots.

    The DB9 etc I see all the time downtown, but don't really consider them exotics anymore.

    Hey it's not that we don't own camera phones, I just haven't seen anything post worthy in a long time. :)

    BTW, your Gallardo looks absolutely fantastic!
    I WANT TO SEE SPYKER PICTURES FROM YOU!

    Exchange has a white Porsche 997 GT3 Mk2. WOW.
