In Februari 2020 Jasper bought the #182 from out of a private collection, covered in dust and not roadworthy. Before that in 2010 this Spyker was new for sale for a long time at Beerens in Antwerp (Belgium). It also stood at the famous car show in Geneva in 2009. Jasper didn't planned to keep this car but purchased her for a collector, this beauty has delivery mileage on the clock; Only 45 mile! In our workshop the #182 will get big maintenance and getting her back roadworthy again. Because the car didn't run for a couple of years the fuel pumps were sized. The fuel tanks had to be removed to replace new fuel pumps. The propellor steering wheel will be added later when it arrives in the US.


 

Update: In August 2020 the current owner put the #182 up for sale on a auction at Gooding&Company. The car has been sold for $396,000 and brakes a world record for highest amount paid ever for a Spyker car.
