How can this car have 2 chassis'?

I agree,this thing needs more power say circa 550bhp. I also think it looks a lot better than the old one. Dubious detailing aside this looks a hell of a lot better than the new Mclaren MP4-12C. Did Mclaren just nick the artist impressions for the next Lotus Esprit?

I'm sure the people lucky enough to have £200k burning a hole in their pockets might just prefer a Ferrari 458 italia, but i understand Spyker are aiming it at a different audience.

Me. I'll take the 458 any day and twice on Sunday.....

If this car was £80-90K it would make sense - just.

It appears confused, stuck between 2 genres...the old school Morgan on the one hand and the technological of the R8 on the other. I don't think it does either very well.

It sounds just like the R8 too - although I don't get it having an automatic paddle shift slush-box - no DSG, no manual - No driver's car.

So it's £200K for the looks. Oh, and £18K Louis Vuitton handbags? Really? An all round waste of space. (OK - I like the toggle switches!)

Glorious, but without the baggage please. Love the details and the finish looks fabulous. Totally outrageous but brilliant.

Saab's in great hands. Bet they can't believe their luck.

This car's problem is that it looks like the bastard lovechild of a Boeing 747 and a Pokemon character. Just look at the vents, the gloss white paint and that front end! God, I love that interior, though. Pity that the manual gearshift and the propellor-blade steering wheel have gone.
