Vandenbrink Automotive Design is a Netherlands-based automotive design and coachbuilding company, founded in 2006 by Michiel van den Brink and Robert Koumans.


In 2006, Van den Brink introduced a plan to design and build a special coachbuilt Ferrari. The artist impression of a modern-day GTO, to be based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano was well received by the press, prompting Vandenbrink Design to develop and build the design. Soon after, the company announced it was working on two other Ferrari-based designs, the Vandenbrink GT Convertible, based on the 599 GTB Fiorano and a shooting-brake version of the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

Currently the company is working on the “Vandenbrink GTO”, a tribute to the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, based on the underpinnings of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. Aluminium coachbuilding will be performed by Hietbrink Coachbuilding (Haaksbergen, Netherlands).

In July 2009, Vandenbrink announced development of the Fra Mauro, a carbon fiber-bodied coach apparently based on the Spyker C8 Spyder chassis and featuring a mid-engine 4.2 litre V8 layout. Production numbers have yet to be determined.

In April 2010, the time came for Van den Brink to continue his business as an independent designer, leaving Vandenbrink Design BV to his business partner Robert Koumans, who will continue the development of the GTO, while Michiel will create new designs under the “Atelier Michiel van den Brink” name.

Vandenbrink GTO:

 Vandenbrink 599/630 GTO

The Vandenbrink GTO is a limited re-bodied version of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. This means an entirely new coachwork, designed by Michiel van den Brink of Vandenbrink Design, is fitted on the stripped chassis and drivetrain of a Ferrari 599 GTB production car. The car’s styling is inspired by the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO as a tribute.

The new coachworks are handcrafted in aluminium by Dutch classic car restoration specialist and coachbuilder Alwin Hietbrink. Optional interior upholstery is hand-stitched by the Dutch Henk van Lith.

In cooperation with race engineer EDO Competition four versions are offered:

  • the 599 GTO (5998 cc / 650 hp / 630 Nm)
  • the high performance 630 GTO (6300 cc / 750 hp / 645374647 Nm)

Only 5 GTO’s will be built.
