Spyker D8 Peking to Paris is an SUV/sportscar built by Spyker. The D8 is a crossover between sportscars and off-road cars, built to be suitable for long-distance touring. The model has a taller build and is also equipped with a larger fuel tank than most other Spyker models - a helpful feature for touring. The name is derived from the well-known motor touring challenge. The original Peking to Paris race was held in 1907 and a Spyker car achieved the 2nd place.
When introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the car's original name was D12 as it was to be built with an Audi 6.0 liter V12. However the designers now switched to a V8 - hence the new model code.
