According to media reports earlier this morning, Spyker, the Dutch maker of super cars are planning to launch a road going version of the GT2 sports car specifically for the Chinese market later this year.
Spyker’s plans for the Chinese edition GT2 appear to be working on making the car longer, wider, and more importantly, more comfortable for the driver. Spyker are also planning a four door car that might make an appearence as early as 2013 which will no doubt go up against the recent crop of sporty executive vehicles such as the Porsche Panamera, Jaguar XF and the cheaper Passat CC.
The launch of the Chinese edition of the C8 Spyder GT2 is expected to take place in October with a new redesign which will take in Chinese design elements both inside and outside with the powertrain getting an upgrade as well to make it more suitable for day to day driving.Â A second China specific model is set to launch in December this year.
Spyker have set China to become its second largest market after the USA market and are planning to sell a considerable amount of vehicles in the Chinese market over the next few years, the addition of vehicles that Chinese drivers can relate to and drive more comfortably is likely to improve Spykers chances in the Middle Kingdom considerably.
