Yesterday's reports of Spyker (one of our favorite boutique automakers) being forced by the government to auction off assets in order to pay the tax man are, according to the company, straight up wrong.

Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief, as Spyker has issued the following statement: “There is no auction or issue, and this should never have been news. A business tax dispute was settled and paid last Wednesday, yet the authorities took nearly five full days to process the payment. During this time, there was a website link to an auction that caused negative press for Spyker Cars. That link has finally been removed and the authorities have confirmed their receipt of payment. Spyker cars remains on track with the production of the B6 Venator and will be releasing additional details in the near future."

Yup, it's painfully slow government processing that's to blame. Regardless, we can't wait to find out more about the Venator.
