The crowning glory of 40 years of Donkervoort.

Happy anniversary

light, fast and versatile

The D8 GTO-40 is the crowning glory of 40 years of Donkervoort history and the culmination of Donkervoorts DNA. An exclusive anniversary model in a limited edition of only 40 pieces.

Unfiltered and instinctive, insisting to achieve its unique goal: to overwhelm the enthusiast of real driving with the unmatched and most pure driving experience. With at heart the sportive and powerful Audi 2,5L R5 TFSI. Combined with the recognizable design, achieving top performances and dedicated craftsmanship.

Let us introduce you to the lightest, fastest and most versatile GTO ever.

The fastest

In terms of the design of the D8 GTO-40, Donkervoort focused on increasing downforce and aerodynamic balance.

This can be seen in the striking design and in the details of the aerodynamic elements.

From the integrated front spoilers to the diffuser at the rear. Extra cooling for the powertrain, rear wheels and brakes is realized by means of the extra air channels in the nose, rear fenders and bumper.

The Lightest

Lightweight. This has been the most important of Donkervoort’s core values for 40 years now. A variety of innovations have enabled significant weight savings to be made in the design of the D8 GTO-40. Making this the lightest GTO ever.
EX-CORE®

EX-CORE® is extensively used in the D8 GTO-40.

Thanks to a collaborative effort with the R&D department of the renowned steel producer Tata Steel, the basis of the D8 GTO-40 – its steel tubular chassis – has been made even stronger. Combined with the EX-CORE® body parts, the upshot is unrivalled safety and torsional rigidity.

Ultimately meaning that the D8 GTO-40 is at least 22 kg* lighter compared to the 2011 D8 GTO.
