The history of Spyker is, unfortunately, not a very long one, and also quite filled with misfortune, as it seemed that every other recent news feed about them indicated some sort of financial problem.
Now, the Spyker name is down, and a recent bit of info indicates that a lot of its assets are being auctioned off.
Sparked by the need to pay off some tax debts, the auctioned off assets include “sports cars, test vehicles, prototypes, racing cars”, as well as 85 Audi V8 engines that never got to be used. The auction hit the car maker in a soft spot, and the information given by them seems to contradict others.
They stated that the tax deb has been resolved and the auction cancelled. Yet the auction house did not confirm this and is saying the auction is still on, with a public viewing on the 25th of July and running up to July the 28th. If you want to see what Spyker stands to lose in this auction, you will have to make the trip to their headquarters, as the full list of auctioned items has not been released.
