The car company based in the Netherlands, Donkervoort has finally brought to the world the new generation car popularly called the D8 GTO sports car. The brand had been founded back in 1978, by Joop Donkervoort – from where the company takes its name. The car has had been in development for two and a half years.

This car had been created in close collaboration with Audi, and the four rings brand provided the engine of this new version: 2.5 liter 5 cylinder TFSI unit tuned at 400 HP and 450 Nm of torque.

The weight of the D8 GTO is estimated at 700 kg, and its creators have claimed that is going to be one of the fastest sports cars to be found in the European market.

And we believe these predictions since we remember that the half of the first twenty-five specially designed GTOs were sold with a few hours, when the car had had its first private preview.

The strongest proof one has to back up this view is because of the cars performance. It is able to reach a 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, with a maximum speed of 250 km/h.

The exterior of the car is designed to have a steel tubular frame which is covered with large carbon composite panels, and apart from being a little longer and wider that its predecessor, the car is now vested with an undercarriage, it has a front axle equipped with new anti-roll bar and also has a new designed rear axle.

The price of this sports car is estimated to be anywhere between 100, 000 Euro and 150, 000 Euro (and this of course includes taxes). The car is going to go into production in 2012. And first regular model car will only be seen in skirting the European roads only in 2013.
