You may have never heard of Dutch sports car manufacturer, and we don’t blame you. Donkervoort recenelty teased a shot of their D8 GTO which is similar to a Caterham 7, only much more powerful and pure. The new version will be named after the Bilster Berg race track based in Germany to celebrate the establishment of Donkervoort’s new German arm in the track itself
The Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition set a lap time record of just 1:46.12 at the Bilster Berg, due to the easy accessibility that allowed for testing and development on the track itself since they are based there. On to the beefy bit; The Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition has a turbocharged 2.5 Liter 5 cylinder Audi engine that makes 380 horsepower and does 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds while topping off at 167mph while wheigh in at 1,532 pounds, that is 694.9 Kg – where do I sign up?
While you may want to acquire this not so official naked car, the Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition will be built 14 times only. Bummer, if you do happen to own a Donkervoort and live in Germany – you will be glad to hear that the German Arm based in the Bilster Berg takes in cars for maintenance, service, repairs and tuning works.
The Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition will be reveled somewhere during 2015.
