2006 Spyker MF1 M16

Zeewolde, The Netherlands, 20 September 2006 - - Spyker MF1 Team will run a striking new livery on all of their M16 race cars for the remainder of the 2006 Formula 1 World Championship. The new livery and sticker design has been implemented in time for the team's Silverstone test on Tuesday 19th September.

The new design has been specially selected by the board of Spyker Cars NV, CEO Victor Muller and Director of Formula One Michiel Mol to represent the exciting future in store for the Team and Spyker Cars N.V. Designed by Spyker MF1 Team's Product Designer Rob Taylor, the orange and silver colouration combines plain black sponsor branding. These official colours of Spyker are unique to Formula One and will ensure instant recognition on track.

The colouration pays tribute to the Team's Dutch connection, orange being the national colour, and Spyker's heritage.

The unveiling of the team's car livery is the first stage in the adoption of a new colour scheme set to cover the race driver and pit crew overalls for the remaining 3 races of the 2006 Formula 1 World Championship, starting with the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on 1st October.

Victor Muller (Chief Executive Officer, Spyker Cars N.V. and Spyker MF1 Team) said 'It is quite amazing what a change of colours and design can do to the appearance of a Formula One car. They are by nature elegant and fit for purpose but with the right colours and design one can underline these qualities to the point that they become breath taking. I am very pleased with the result and thank the other teams and FIA for their cooperation to make this livery change possible at such short notice.'

Michiel Mol (Director of Formula One Spyker Cars N.V. and Spyker MF1 Team) said 'We are really happy to change the livery to orange and silver. The orange colour symbolizes our Dutch roots whilst at the same time makes for an attractive colour scheme that is easily discernable on the grid. My compliments to the team. It is impressive how motivated
everybody is and how the team moves forward. In China we will have a complete new look and feel which is very appealing.'

Colin Kolles (Team Principal, Spyker MF1 Team) said 'It is fantastic for the team to implement such a fresh and unique livery and design in time for the Chinese Grand Prix. We hope that with a good performance on track and this striking new design, combined with Spyker's phenomenal brand awareness in China, we will cause a stir among our Chinese fans. The new colours have helped to raise morale within the Team and there is real excitement and anticipation to see what we can achieve in Shanghai and the remaining races this season'.

The arrival of Spyker MF1 Team's new livery also sees the team's commercial operation adopt a new focus in the acquisition of partners within the IT, telecoms, financial services, new media and luxury goods sectors.
