Spyker has begun production in the UK, bringing its assembly line to the same site as one of its major suppliers to cut costs.
Spyker has opened a 20,000 square foot plant at CPP Manufacturing in Whitley, Coventry, relocating from Zeewolde in Holland. Around 40 jobs will be created as a result.
The new plant can build five Spyker Aileron supercars each week on one shift
"This move makes sense on many different levels," said Muller. "CPP has been producing our body panels for 10 years and we have an extremely close working relationship with the company.
"More than half our components are sourced from the UK, so moving here will bring us considerable efficiency savings, which is vital for a car company of our size."
Spyker's founder Victor Muller and chairman Vladimir Antonov officially opened the site with Brendan O'Toole, managing director of CPP, on Tuesday.
