Donkervoort begins delivering the D8 Premium GTO

Donkervoort Automobielen B.V., founded by Joop Donkervoort, has been building sport cars since 1978. The combination of appealing styling, ultra-light weight, high power output and fantastic road holding like a racing car, has created a sports car that makes the hearts of countless car enthusiasts beat faster.The last series they have received approval to build was the Donkervoort D8 Premium GTO.

The Donkervoort D8 Premium GTO will be available in a sort of a limited edition. The manufacturer will only produce 25 units. The first six vehicles have recently left the factory in Lelystad, Holland. The rest of the cars will be delivered to their anxious owners by the end of the year. The car will be offered to the entire European continent, including Russia, Switzerland and the Gulf States, too.

The Donkervoort D8 Premium GTO is powered by an Audi 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbo engine which can produce up to 400 HP (294 kW) and 475 Nm (350 lb-ft). It allows the vehicle, which weights 1,653 lbs (750 kg), to reach a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in three seconds. Its best speed is 158 mph (255 km/h). This engine type has been declared the best engine in the world for the past four years and no one can contradict the unequalled performance and smooth maneuverability it has to offer.

The Donkervoort D8 Premium GTO is the fastest vehicle produced by the Dutch until now. The car is provided with a carbon/aluminum/steel tubular hybrid chassis featuring carbon fiber/fiber glass body panels, which makes it an easy car. The lightweight construction will bring the D8 GTO to a quite reduced fuel consumption comparing to the power it releases. A Donkervoort is the ultimate choice for the true enthusiast who desires sheer motoring enjoyment in a sports car full of personality.
