Donkervoort D8 GTO Unveiled

If you’d like to buy a Caterham Seven but think it needs a serious hormone injection, look no further than the brand new Donkervoort D8 GTO, which is describe as being "clearly a size larger" than Donkervoort's previous creations, the GT and D8 270RS.

While Caterhams usually borrow Ford crates, this is altogether a more German creation (even though it’s actually Dutch), powered by an engine we always thought had nothing but racing credentials, the Audi 2.5-liter TFSI from hardcore models like the TT-RS or RS3 Sportback. In the Donkervoort, it makes 340 or 400 horsepower, depending if a race module switch has been engaged.

If you’re not impressed yet, we’ll ad the fact that the total weight is about 700 kg or somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500 lbs. Production will start early next year, with the first run of 25 vehicles expected to cost somewhere between €100,000 and €150,000... not including tax.
