"In 1903 Spyker introduced the extremely advanced 60/80 HP. It was the first car with a six-cylinder engine as well as permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel brakes. In the same period Spyker introduced its patented "dust shield chassis," a chassis fitted with a streamlined under tray the prevented the car from making dust on unpaved roads. It was innovations such as these that characterized the Spyker cars, which quickly became famous for their quality and the ruggedness of their engineering. The Spyker models, with their characteristic circular radiators, were especially successful in the Dutch East Indies and in Britain, where Spyker became known as "the Rolls-Royce of the continent."

first car with permanent AWD and 4-wheeled brakes
available with 60 or 80hp(astronomical at the time since other cars had under 10hp tongue.gif)!
