Spyker D12 fq

Reuters is reporting that Alexander Antonov owner of flamboyant Dutch supercar company Spyker, has been seriously wounded in an apparent assassination attempt while leaving his Moscow home. The Russian billionaire, who is also the chairman of the board of the Konvers Group (a banking concern), was shot along with a bodyguard.

According to Reuters, Antonov has survived the attack and his injuries have been identified as non life-threatening, although he remains in intensive care after being shot five times in the stomach and has lost a finger to another bullet. The security guard also wounded in the gangland style shooting took a bullet in the leg and is also in intensive care but is expected to survive.

Moscow police are now investigating the crime, although they have yet to make any arrests they apparently suspect that the shooting is related to Antonov’s business dealings.
