Three years after its debut at the Geneva motor show, Spyker will begin producing the D12 Peking to Paris SUV next year.

Power comes from Volkswagen's W12 engine but Spyker failed to provide performance specifications for their application of the engine. However the company did state that the engine will allow the D12 to run from 0-60 mph in 5 seconds flat and reach a top speed of 185 mph.

Even in an era where the SUV has passed its prime and with a global financial crisis in full swing, Spyker says demand remains high for the £186,000 D12. In fact demand is expected to be so high that the new D12 will be built on a production line instead of being hand built like previous Spykers.
