The car made its first debut during the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and the company got a "go ahead" signal for production during the end of 2013.

The car was limited to just 918 examples and by the end of December 2014, all 918 examples were sold out. The United States has the highest number of the Spyder being bought, 297 units be be specific, and then followed by China and Germany which have around 100 each.
