Meet Mr. Donkervoort and his fabulous flying machines
Like many great ideas, Donkervoort's work started from what could have been a tragedy. He became the Lotus Seven importer into The Netherlands, but soon after taking over the role, Joop found out the previous guy hadn't been homologating the vehicles to make them legal there. Not willing to give up, it forced Donkervoort to develop his own take on the concept, and the company's first car was completed in 1978.
Check out the video to learn how the Donkervoort went from that modest beginning to building race-winning vehicles that continue to evolve the DNA of the Seven into increasingly better performing sports cars.
