Donkervoort D8 GTO – Bare Naked Carbon Edition
Gentlemen, I know that when you think of amazing super cars, Holland is not the first place that comes to mind, but the motor heads over at Donkervoort will change that!
Best described as “Legal on the road, but a Demon on the track”, this beautiful beast is inspired by the Lotus Seven, with a 2.5 Liter TFSI Audi Engine and a body made mostly of carbon fiber.
The Donkervoort D8 GTO is one of the fastest street-legal cars in the world, with a Zero to 60 of 3.3 seconds,and a 0 to 125 in 10.4 seconds. Its power rating is 340 to 380 hp, with 450 Nm of torque starting at around 1600 rpm. With the Bare Naked Carbon Edition, Donkervoort has also kept visible the material that keeps its car light (just over 1,500 pounds). The carbon fiber bodywork has been installed by hand, with care to ensure precise alignment of the weave since it’s all visible under a lacquered or matte finish.
I bet you thought all the Dutch were good at were windmills and wooden shoes!
