Most people think of Ford when they hear the name Galpin. After all, the Van Nuys, CA dealership has been the Blue Oval's number one volume seller for twenty years running. But Galpin sells more than Mustangs and Fusions. Their Premier Collection showroom houses inventory for Aston Martin, Jaguar and Lotus - it's the same place we visited to get up close and personal with the Aston Martin One-77.
Galpin can now add one more to that list. Spyker, the new owner of Saab, has appointed Galpin as its latest dealer and the only one in Los Angeles. The announcement kicked off with a party earlier this week at Galpin's Classic Collection building with various colors of the C8 Aileron coupe and spyder on display.
Don't expect the Dutch supercars to fly off Galpin's showroom floor, though. Just 45 cars were sold worldwide last year, with the United States accounting for less than half that total. That said, Beau Boeckmann, President of Galpin, has realistic expectations for 2010. He hopes to maintain ten percent of the North American market share, which would currently equate to just a couple of cars each year.
