    This is the prototype La Turbie, designed as a Spyder without hardtop. She has these "cones" behind the rollbars also seen on the prototype C12 Spyder #056. The La Turbie was later fitted with a turned aluminium dashboard (although the parts in the door were not changed!) and a new exterior color Royal Blue before starring in the movie "WAR".

      They also forgot the top edge of the cubby hole.

        In the factory photo from Kolluk, the dash has five center dial openings. In the finished interior photos, only four. Any explanation?

          It also seems to show a vent opening on the right side that doesn't show up in the finished images???

            Possibly the outer openings in the dash both left and right were destined for the aircovents and the meter in the outer left corner could have been in the fifth hole in the center? For some reason Spyker did not mount the airco vents, maybe because there was some time pressure to finish the car in order to be displayed? And also when the dash was changed to turned aluminum, one of the two meters at the left was axed. When looking at the bare chassis, it seems five meters will fit in the center but when looking at the finished interior there seems to be no place in that panel for a fifth meter.

              Another configuration, also with the two openings at the left but with four in the middle:

              And another one without the openings for the dials but with one large opening:
