2001 Spyker C8 Double 12 R

The Spyker Double 12 is a handbuilt aluminum road car developed for both road use and endurance racing in the GT class.

The Double 12 shares its chassis and suspension with the Spyker C8 Spyder. The name Double 12 refers to one of Spykers sporting successes in which a road going C4 broke the 24 hours endurance record at Brooklands.

79 years later Spyker intends to prove that production cars are capable of sporting success. Spyker intends to enter two C8 Double 12s in the 2002 Lemans.
