Modern Coachbuilding in the 21st Century

Niels van Roij Design stands as a leading figure in the world of coachbuilding. The artisanal craftsmanship employed in the creation of each Niels van Roij Design car has been refined over decades. In every step of the Niels van Roij Design production process and in the design of each Niels van Roij Design model, these traditional skills are seamlessly integrated with modern technology. This distinctive fusion is aptly termed 21st Century Coachbuilding, a concept that illustrates the company’s unique position in the automotive industry. Wood has long been a cornerstone of Niels van Roij Design car construction and remains integral to modern Niels van Roij Design production and the ethos of 21st Century Coachbuilding. English ash, burl walnut, polished: wood can be lightweight, durable.


Expert artisans at Niels van Roij Design skillfully combine traditional fabrication techniques with cutting-edge processes to work with lightweight aluminum. This harmonious blend results in the graceful panels that adorn each Niels van Roij Design one-off coachbuilding project. Rolled edges and hand-stamped louvres harmonize with aluminum wings and laser-cut panels, seamlessly marrying craftsmanship with technology.


The cockpit of every Niels van Roij Design car is adorned with the highest quality leather, Tweed or other fabrics: available in a myriad of colours, stitch patterns, and finishes. Each interior is meticulously crafted with an unwavering attention to detail. The finest leather is a by-product of the food industry, ensuring sustainability and minimizing manufacturing miles. In summary, Niels van Roij Design’s approach to coachbuilding in the 21st century is a harmonious blend of time-honored craftsmanship and modern innovation, resulting in automotive masterpieces that embody elegance, sophistication, and timeless style.
