Spyker is the only Dutch car company that some people still remember. They were very well known for their round radiators and a few fighter planes they built during WWI. This Spyker was one of the last ones built under the command of mister Spyker, because later that year he drowned on a ferry crossing. The company was revived a few times later on. In 1915 it was bought by a German industrial company, but that went bankrupt in 1918 again. In 1922 it was once again revived, but also went bankrupt very quickly in 1926. Then it remained dead for many years. Since 1999 it has already been under several new owners.
