Spyker, which is somehow still alive and kicking, has been desperately trying to produce a mid-engined, super-sports utility vehicle since it debuted the D12 Peking-To-Paris Concept at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show (later revised to "D8" with a change in proposed engine cylinder count). Seven years later, AutoCar is reporting that it might finally see production.

Thanks to its partnership with Chinese brand Youngman, which provided a 25 million Euro ($33.2 million at today's rates) infusion of cash for the P2P and other projects, Spyker is aiming to produce 1000 units for growing luxury markets like China and Russia. According to the report, a production model will arrive at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, which will enter production at the end of 2014 following the launch of the B6 Venator.

Production of the B6, meanwhile, is likely to be outsourced as Spkyer simply can't handle demand in the Netherlands. AutoCar speculates that Germany or the United Kingdom could be a potential construction site for the new sports coupe.

      Genuinely one of the ugliest vehicles I've ever seen.

        It\'s definitely up there with Pontiak Aztek and BMW 1 Series.

      This is the reason why they failed out of Formula 1. Some idiot with more money that they know what to do with will buy this and think it's cool because only THEY can afford it. Exclusive does not equal cool.

        That\'s what I said. Looks like an obese Aston Martin yawning big time!

      Even on the ugliest cars, you can usually find at least one angle that can make you think "You know, from this direction, it's really not completely horrible." On this? Nope. Every side is this car's bad side. They managed to make every proportion on this car completely and totally wrong. This is... the ugliest car in the world.

        I absolutely agree. If there is one thing, its the interior.

      I honestly don't know if they could have made it any uglier.

      This thing is hideous. Looks like a micro machine or one of those smart car body kits designed to make it look like another model. http://www.gizmag.com/smart-body-kits-the-smorsche-smerrari-smorvette-and-smamborghini/10442/

      WHEN will EVERY other country in the world STOP STEALING Italian designs? Least the Germans purchased Italian companies, and not just knocked off the designs This is nothing more than a stolen theme and tweaked of the Fornasari "Luxury travels fast" http://www.fornasaricars.com/index.php?a=auto&id=6#gallery

      Dorky, but kinda cool. Looks like the kinda car that Tintin would drive (with Captin Haddock passed out on the passenger seat!).
