OT: Parked my Box near this at lunch today

Spyker C8, see pics below. My car is that dirty black car in the last shot, embarrassing.

These don't do anything at all for me. Too many chrome bits slobbered all over it and the interior looks like Liberace threw up.

It's just bad color choice. It does sort of look horrible with the top up though.

PB, I'd be much less embarrassed driving a dirty box than to ever get in that abortion.

Check out the interior:

~ Diamond pleated console, door sills, door panels, and under dash.

~ Diamond pleated seat inserts.

~ Diamond pleated seat belts.

~ Exposed shift linkages for God's sake!

~ The windows stay permanently up.

~ There's no windshield header.

~ Look at the steering wheel in foto #2 - it looks like it came out of my Dad's '24 Model T

That looks like a car that would be on Cribs parked next to a Hummer with 30 inch spinners and Lamborghini doors. Horrible.

It may be a decent car to drive, but that designer has a bad case of ADD.

Not my cup of tea, but its cool its own way for sure. It's nice to see some unique stuff out there from time to time. It's not like you are going to see one of those in person very often. I've never seen one live anyway.....glad you snapped a few shots.

I think it is very cool to let your imagination go wild on a big budget. That is always entertaining to me.

The whole car is OTT, but I can't look at that interior without thinking ELVIS

I totally agree and appreciate how the designer ignored traditional convention to design something unique. Still it's not enough to make me want one of my own. A little too unconventional for my taste.

I love Spykers. They're so unabashedly gaudy, both inside and out. If I could afford to own a fleet of luxury cars, I'd put it on my list.

But let me concentrate on getting a Ferrari first.

I thought this one looked pretty sweet. The chrome blends a little better with the car as a whole with the silver paint. But man oh man, that interior is freaking aweful

Yeah, with the top up, it was ugly. I left before the owner drove off, another friend of mine heard it, said it sounded nice.
