Did Spyker hire the designer of Suzuki's X90?

If this is the way Spyker styles upcoming Saabs, we’re in for some ugly sheet metal on the roads in coming years. Originally launched as a concept at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the D12 Peking to Paris is aimed at the Eastern European and Chinese markets. Places with newly minted millionaires, but poor roads and infrastructure. After all, you can’t drive the rutted dirt roads to the sweatshop in a Pagani Zonda, can you?

Whatever motor they choose, I hope the end result is a seriously fast SUV. You can’t outrun ugly, but if the car is entertaining enough you may not care.
