The little known Dutch car manufacturing industry has been grabbing the headlines of late thanks to Holland-based Spyker’s recent takeover of the struggling Saab marque. And now it seems like independent Dutch marque Heynsdyk wants a crack at the big time following its unveiling of the smouldering 2500SF sports car.
In the 2500SF, the Eindhoven-based company has created an exquisite drop-top sports car based on the platform of the Porsche 944 (well, they weren’t going to base it on any famous Dutch cars, were they?) that was in production between 1982 and 1991. But you wouldn’t know it from the look of things, as the 2500SF bears a closer resemblance to a car straight out of a 1950s teen anxiety flick rather than the relic of 1980s car design it once was.
The dramatic design overhaul means that from the side the 2500SF has a silver bullet-like profile thanks to the addition of a rounded front end. Gone are the 944’s pop up front lights and in their place are some stylish Bentley Continental-esque headlamps that add to the retro aesthetic of the 2500SF.
Fortunately, everything under the hood is thoroughly modern, with the 2500SF powered by a 2.5-litre four cylinder drivetrain that generates a power output of 163bhp, helping the car to a decent top speed of 155mph and a 0-62mph of just six seconds.
