Donkervoort Automobielen is a producer of sports cars based in Lelystad in The Netherlands. This car brand was founded in 1978 by Joop Donkervoort.

The Donkervoort is based on the Lotus Seven. One of the differences is a redesigned nose cone.

More than 25 years ago Joop Donkervoort decided to build his own sports car. He started off his car manufacturing company from his small family home in Tienhoven. A few years later the company moved to Loosdrecht, where most of the cars have been built. In 2000, a beautiful modern production facility was realised in Lelystad from which we develop and assemble the cars, from the chassis to the last detail of the car. In the past 25 years, up to 1,000 cars have left the factory.

In 1996 Donkervoort started a co-operation with Audi, a beautiful marriage, that gives them the possibility to build a car using one of the most reliable, most powerful and compact engines on the market.

A Donkervoort is the ultimate deal for the real car enthusiast, that wants no compromise in driving pleasure. Donkervoort makes their cars ultra light and in combination with tremendous power and superb road holding characteristics of a racing car, they have created the car that make the hearts of many car lovers beat faster.

Today's Donkervoort has without any doubt moved on from the very first models; their continuous efforts to achieve better quality, combined with modern and attractive styling have led to the current D8-series. The ultimate in sports cars, created for the real car enthusiast.
