About Vandenbrink

Vandenbrink is a Dutch automobile company, creators of the Carver.

Vandenbrink first started to look at Man Wide Vehicles (MWV) in 1989 when Chris van den Brink put together a team of designers. In 1994 Chris van den Brink and Harry Kroonen invented the basic concept of Dynamic Vehicle Control (DVC): using a car type steering wheel results in a 'motorcycle-type' tilt of the vehicle's chassis.

Over the next couple of years two Carver Prototypes were built with constant improvements to the hydraulic tilting system and in 1997 the vehicle became approved by the Dutch Government Road Authority to be driven on public roads.

Manufactured in the Netherlands, the Carver is a "Tilting 3-wheeler" that tilts the same as a motorcycle when cornering. The DVC system varies depending upon the speed of the vehicle. Turning whilst going slow will keep the Carver almost upright but with increased speed the Carver will tilt further in the same way a motorcycle does. On gravel/sand the Carver performs like a speedway motorcycle where the front wheel counter steers.
