I'm sure everyone know the Dutch sport car maker Spyker...I just can't stop adding the C8 Spyder GT2R car into my GT2 collection. The #85 C8 Spyder GT2R factory team car had done a remarkable job last year at Le Mans 24 Hr last year, where they grabbed fourth position in GT2 class (just missed the podium place to all the Ferrari F430s).
Some introduction about the Spyker Squadron:
Spyker Squadron was founded in 2001 to underwrite the performance of the highly exclusive hand-build Spyker sports cars. Spyker Squadron is a dedicated team consisting of engineers, drivers and supporting personnel that develops, builds, supports the Spyker GT2 race cars. The team is based in Zeewolde, the Netherlands, where it has a high-tech workshop to support their operations.
All technical developments, from chassis design to assembling the V8 engines, are done in-house and only the best components are used in the Spyker race cars. Selected components are build to specification by our hi-tech partners and assembled in the Spyker factory.
During the races a team of about 25 engineers and mechanics support Spyker's race operations on location. The specialists who actually developed and built the GT2 race cars all have a specific role in the Squadron Team. This makes Spyker unique and proves Spyker Squadron's commitment to further improve the car.
