Spyker Will Sell Cars in Saab Showrooms

The Saab/Spyker relationship not only saved Saab, but will also now provide a Halo car of sorts for our favorite marque (at least until the rumored Aero-X based sports car reaches production in a few years). Do you think having a C8 Aileron (pictured, left) on display in your local Saab showroom will get new people in the door to check out the latest Saab offerings? OK, so not every Saab dealership will also be a Spyker dealership, but there will most likely be one within a short drive of just about any market. According to Automotive News, "Spyker intends to boost its dealer network to 60 from 35 in 2010, and to about 90 by the end of next year." Spyker Cars CEO, Victor Muller, noted in the article that "We are signing up Spyker dealerships left, right and center."

And this, from the same article, can only mean more positive results from the partnership: "The Dutch supercar maker has also started benefiting from lower prices for “generic” parts such as windscreen wiper motors that Saab gets through its higher volumes, Muller said, adding that Spyker plans to tap Saab's engineering resources. “Spyker will be profitable in its own right, very much helped by its sister Saab,” Muller said. “It's wonderful that the company that saved Saab is also benefiting from having done that in its own business.”
