Vandenbrink Design was set up by Michiel van den Brink and ir Robert Koumans in 2006 and is located in The Netherlands. Designer Michiel van den Brink was born in 1977 in Barneveld, The Netherlands. He studied Industrial Design at the Delft University and worked as freelance industrial designer for several years before he started his cardesign career at Spyker Cars in The Netherland. At Spyker, Michiel designed the extraordinary SSUV, the D12 Peking to Paris, which was first shown at the 2006 Geneva Motorshow. Robert (1961) studied Mechanical Engineering at the Delft University / Vehicle Dynamics / Mechatronics. Later he designed Fly-By-Wire flight control systems at Fokker Aircraft. Focus in his later career was on the combination of art and technology.

Vandenbrink Design's focus is on custom-fitted special coachbuilding for highly exclusive luxury- and sportscars. Vandenbrink's mission is to create hand-built one-offs on special customer demand only. The aluminium coachwork is handcrafted following the classic tradition by Italian coachbuilding partners, specialised in limited series engineering and manufacturing.

Their first design project, the Vandenbrink GTO, is an homage to the iconic Ferrari 250 GTO. The design received worldwide acclaim and was considered "arguably the most beautiful car in the world" by TopGear UK.

In 2010 Michiel left the Vandenbrink Design company, to start his own "Atelier Van den Brink".

The Vandenbrink Design company continued the development of the 'Vandenbrink GTO', of which 12 will be built on bespoke order.
In 2019 the first 'Vandenbrink Shooting Brake' was built, with planned production of a limited series of 12 shooting brakes.
