Spyker begins to sell sports cars at Saab Showrooms

Spyker Cars NV, Saab Automobile’s owner, plans to almost double the number of dealers selling its high-end sports cars this year by offering them through Saab outlets, Chief Executive Officer Victor Muller said.

Spyker intends to boost its dealer network to 90 from the previous 35 to 30 dealers by next year end. This year itself they expect to reach almost double the number of dealers of what they had last year.

C8 Aileron would be the first Spyker model to be sold through the Saab outlet. The car is designed to achieve speeds of 186 mph (300 KM/Hr) and the price for the basic car is $214,990 in the US.

The Dutch supercar maker has also started benefiting from lower prices for "generic" parts such as wind screen wiper motors that Saab gets through its higher volumes.

The new dealerships will help Spyker, which sold 36 cars last year and has been loss-making since it went public in 2004, to become profitable, Muller said.

"Spyker will be profitable in its own right, very much helped by its sister Saab," Muller said.
