According to a report by the Financial Times, Spyker Cars has been offloaded to a Connecticut-based private equity firm after a deal to sell the supercar manufacturer to another set of investors failed a few months back.

North Street Capital, LP is the supposed new owner of Spyker, which Saab had been attempting to sell earlier this year. Negotiations were originally being hashed out between Saab and a partnership between a British and Russian consortium and Vladimir Antonov, which just recently announced plans to build a modern interpretation of the Jensen Interceptor.

As of today (9/28/2011), the terms of the deal haven't been released by either Saab or North Street Capital. Clearly though, considering how cash-strapped the company is, Saab is in desperate need of a funding infusion. We'll update this post with more details as they become available.

      Wait, so some people in my state own Spyker now? Or will soon? Sweeeet.. Though I cannot afford one of their vehicles, I will admit that they make some really interesting and good looking cars.

        Do you always have to type in all caps? It makes you look like an even bigger idiot.

      GM needs to buy Spyker. It'd make a great boutique brand. Continue to sell it in low volumes, w/ the craftsmanship and attention to detail Spyker is known for. Just put LS7's in the place of the Audi V8. They'd sell like crazy...

          Yeah, but it doesn't matter because it was just daydreaming. It'd be cool as hell though.

          Could still use a TT variant of the CTS V6.

      Maybe we Americans can put our little spin on it. I like UK super cars already, so the combination should be good, but I am sure not afforadable me this yankee!

      Wasn't Spyker earlier acquired by Coventry Prototype Panels earlier?

      Don't see how they're still in business to be quite honest. They have their cars at the New York International Auto Show nearly every year and they are quite beautiful machines. That being said, i've never in my entire life seen on on the road...ever. They are like the Loch Ness Monster & Big Foot. You HEAR about them every now and then, but they are but myths on the road.

        I have driven the LM85. The audi engine feels great in it. It is more car art than supercar though. With that orange and grey paint job i may as well have been driving a sherman tank on the road with the amount of looks it got.

        I've seen one multiple times on 680 around the Danville/Blackhawk area (SF East Bay), but that's it. Such a beautiful car I cringe to see it drive on such a rough section of freeway.
