The Burton is a Dutch sports car based on French 2CV technology. The Burton is an open, nostalgic-looking sports car built on the chassis of the 2CV with a modern glassfibre bodykit. The car can be built as an open two seater, or with a hardtop with gull-wing doors or with a custom made convertible roof. From the beginning of 2002 the Burton is available all over Europe.

Late 1998, Iwan and Dimitri Goebel started to design the Burton, then codenamed 'Hunter'. They were inspired by legendary sports cars, such as Bugatti, Jaguar, Talbot-Lago, Delahaye and Alfa Romeo. After 18 months, the prototype was ready and on February 9, 2000, the first body was taken from the mold. In May 2000, the Burton was introduced to the Dutch audience.

Burton also imports and sells the Lomax.
