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 theSpyker C8 Spyder chassis and featuring a mid-engine 4.2 litre V8 layout. Production numbers have yet to be determined.
