    Just curious as to if anyone had any information about the Spyker Factory in Zeewolde? Trying to find out if they allow visits/hours of operations/if an appointment needs to be made/are camcorders allowed/or any other useful information. Found the location and contact info on Spyker's site http://www.spykercars.nl/?pag=1 but that's about it. Also...what are some cool things to check out in Amsterdam? Thank You for any help! :)

    Brian,

    Our resident Spyker guru (Jeffrey, Fchat nick Spyker007) is not at home today as he's with me on a trip to Wales to check up on my Dino. We're staying over at a friends place and Jeffrey seems to still be vast asleep in the room upstairs. I'm sure he'll be able to respond to your questions once he gets back home tonight. So stay tuned... :)

    Te lang tussen de lampen gehangen? Post is van 08:30 en dat is voor vele van ons een uitslaap-tijd (behalve Margriet, die gaat dan net naar bed, toch? :D)

    Hee, IK zal al achter de laptop!

    Nu ook trouwens, nadat we vannacht om 2:30 thuis zijn gekomen. Jeffrey heeft lekker door kunnen rijden na de trein. Calais - Utrecht in 2 uurtjes in plaats van de 3 uur die de navi aangaf. (Wat een pokke apparaat trouwens! Die dropte ons gisterenmiddag in een weiland vlak bij Milton Keynes. "Zo, u bent er". ruim 45 minuten rijden VOORBIJ het punt dat we ingesteld hadden als eindbestemming! Nog eens controleren, en idd, de juiste eindbestemming stond er toch echt. Na 3 uur sturen over binnenweggetjes was dat even een puntje van sjacho zijn.... ;)

    Overigens fotootjes van gisteren bij Al. Maar die post ik wel effies in het juiste draadje...

    P.S. Joost, hoe fluiten volgens?? Beetje vroeg zeker he? Niet helemaal wakker??? ;)

    Calais - Utrecht in 2 uur en 10 minuten. :D (154,16 km/h gemiddeld)
    Inderdaad niet veel verkeer op de weg tussen 0:38 en 02:48.
    Het duurde zelf nog wat langer omdat we (pre-paid) moesten tanken in België.... :D
    Zoals het zou moeten zijn!

    Hi Brian,

    To answer your Spyker related question:

    allow visits? As far as i know they do
    hours of operations? 08:30 - 17:00
    if an appointment needs to be made? Yes
    are camcorders allowed? No pictures or video inside the facility. (Main adres is Aftersales/Customer Specials/Racing department. Production is a different building close-by)

    My best sugestion is that you contact them directly with your question. A call would do. They are very friendly and open.

    Jeffrey, Hans, Bas...thank you all for the replies, along with all the others...but I only am able to understand the english ones :D:D

    A few more questions for you Jeffrey if you do not mind (will be sending a PM after this :)):

    "No pictures or video inside the facility"...but are they allowed in the production building close-by? I have the address that you provided as well, but is there a different address for the "production building" or is it like right next door? Are cars displayed for videography inside or in front of the buildings or anything like that? Just thought it would be neat to get some footage of Spyker Cars in their land of origin.

    I am also not familiar with the area....traveling from Amsterdam, would it be best to take a train/taxi/rent a car...?

    Thank You All Again,
    BrianZuk

    It's best to rent a car Brian, Zeewolde is not easy to visit with public Transport. When you rent a car you could also try to visit Donkervoort in Lelystad (15 minutes from spyker) and Hessing in Utrecht. (the last one is a must see!)

    Hi Brian,

    They don´t have any cars on display at the factory. If you would like to make a video, just ask if they have a factory demontrator (they could park outside) for this pupose.

    The production facility is a few hundred yards from the ´Edisonweg´ on the same industrial estate.

    When you rent a car, try to rent a GPS with the car. Depending on traffic (from Amsterdam) you should not need to travel more than one hour to Spyker or Hessing (Bugatti, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini, Marerati dealer. http://hessing.nl/home.html)

    Company: Hessing's Autobedrijven BV
    Street: Proostwetering 53
    Zipcode: 3543 AC
    Ciy: Utrecht

    Enjoy your trip!!

    Jeffrey

    Looking at the scale it seems to be in MPH? Some serious fun indeed!
