This is #189. It was delivered at Monza cars in Beirut in July.

Maybe this is the new car for the Sultan of Johor?

His previous (white) C8 Spyder got damaged at a dealer in Singapore and he bought the car from a dealer in Beirut.

This was the amount Sultan Ibrahim, who is the Sultan of Johor, forked out for the sports car, which he bought from a car dealer in Beirut, Lebanon, about two months ago.

Could very well be, although the damaged car was handled by Hong Seh. So if he's ordering his car trough a dealer, it would be more logical to order at carpro for instance. Another option is that Spyker delivered a car directly to him.

This part is a bit strange, why would the Beirut representative have to pay for a mistake made in Singapore?

But on Tuesday, it was understood that a representative of the dealer in Beirut paid the money to the sultan's representative, even before the letter of demand was sent out.

I guess there is some weird connection between the Beirut dealer, the Sultan and Hong Seh Motors.

Maybe the Sultan likes to do business with/throug the dealer in Beirut? And when he has to order a new car he does that via the dealer in Beirut?
