The people who buy our cars are the most passionate and most informed about their driving, their cars and their responsibilities. We don’t have millions of customers, but their voices should still be heard.
Technology for us should always be first and foremost a means to create human emotions.

Denis Donkervoort, Managing Director

Company Info

Founded in 1978 by Joop Donkervoort and currently under the direction of second-generation Denis Donkervoort, the Dutch carmaker concentrates on lightweight, highly emotional, handcrafted and very exclusive fast cars. Donkervoort delivered its first supercar in 2022: the ultra-lightweight Donkervoort F22.

Only 1500 Donkervoorts have ever been made and, because of its close relationship with its customers, no two cars have ever been identical.

Known as a customer-focused, technologically brave company, its D8 GTO-JD70 was the first production car to breach the 2G cornering barrier, and the all-new F22 supercar is capable of hitting 2.15G of lateral acceleration while remaining the lightest road-registered, two-seat supercar in the world. It also spun off its breakthrough Ex-Core carbon-fibre process in 2018, and it is used by everything fromFormula One, other hypercar brands, and even ocean-racing yachts.

Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70

An homage to the 70th birthday of Donkervoort founder Joop Donkervoort, the D8 GTO-JD70 is blisteringly fast, whipping to 100km/h in just 2.7 seconds. More interestingly, the manual, rear-drive supercar pulls 2G of cornering acceleration thanks to its clever suspension engineering and new Nankang tyres.

Donkervoort D8 GTO-Individual Series

Unlimited customization has always been the exclusive realm of multimillion-euro hypercar brands. The Donkervoort D8 GTO Individual Series has challenged this. Customers can make their cars unique to them with a free approach to customization and tailoring that is unheard of at supercar prices.

Donkervoort F22

The Donkervoort F22 supercar weighs only 750kg, with 500hp, and is larger than its predecessor, with a bigger cabin and removable carbon-fibre Twin Targa roof. F22 gives Donkervoort drivers new levels of speed, handling, driving purity, design, and practicality and shows the world where Donkervoort is going in the future.

+ Heritage

Donkervoort began in 1978, when Joop Donkervoort’s first Ford-powered cars left his workshop in Tienhoven, in the Netherlands. It moved to Loosdrecht and then found its current home in Lelystad, where it has built a reputation for design, detail, customer satisfaction and pure speed and is now under the direction of second-generation Denis Donkervoort. Today, the F22 supercar uses five-cylinder, turbocharged engines from Audi Sport and obsesses about the intersection of weight, strength and high art.
