DAF ReBorn by Martijn Lemmens

DAF ReBorn

Once the Dutch had their own national family car, made in Holland by DAF. Now, the company only sells trucks, and production is largely out-sourced abroad. In an effort to revive the Dutch car industry, Martijn Lemmens presents a new version of the DAF. He translated the forms of the ‘Daffodil’ model from the 1960s into a modern design with state-of-the-art techniques and materials: it’s a hybrid plug-in vehicle, but remains a characteristic DAF car. After thorough research of the production capacity in the Netherlands, Martijn found a company for each part: together they could make this all-Dutch car.
