The ultimate record breaker

Breaking records

Purer, more extreme and faster than ever.

The legendary RS is back! Every bit as ambitious as its predecessor, the D8 270 RS, which drew the world’s attention when it set the lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2004 and 2006. Completely redesigned over the past three years – both in terms of design and at the technical level. The next generation Donkervoort, the ultimate record breaker.

distinctive styling

The new nose design, the beautifully streamlined bodywork with the completely closed carbon fiber bottom plate with side skirts, the sleekly styled and easily removable upper doors and the various small spoilers and vanes contribute to a downforce of no less than 50 kg on the front axle and 50 kg on the rear axle.

Compared to the D8 GTO the air resistance has been reduced by a whopping 20 per cent. The significant aerodynamic improvements result not only in greater stability of the car at high speeds but also increased top speed.

Improved performance

The legendary pure sport engine of the D8 GTO-RS, the Audi 2.5L R5 TFSI, has been fully updated and meets the latest environmental requirements (EU6 emission standard).

In addition – and perhaps more importantly – the engine management has been optimised, giving the engine in the RS greatly improved torque throughout the rev range. Result: even faster acceleration!

Better aerodynamics

Improving the aerodynamics of a car with four open wheels is by definition ‘challenging’. Yet this challenge was one of the most important objectives during the design process of the D8 GTO-RS.

This new model marks the first time Donkervoort has succeeded in creating substantial downforce. This is directly reflected in the distinctive and eye-catching styling of the GTO-RS.

Premiere

In addition, the GTO-RS includes a première: it marks the first time Donkervoort has utilised the patented Ex-Core production method for carbon fiber components it developed in-house.

This advanced production method, which has also attracted the attention of other automotive manufacturers and other industries, makes the carbon components used in the RS stronger and lighter thanks to a unique foam sandwich technique.

Technical specifications

The D8 GTO-RS is designed to appeal to all your senses, to relax you, but above all… for driving. A wide range of technical specifications will help you further facilitate the use of your Donkervoort.

Interior

Even more aesthetically refined and sophisticated yet more functional than ever is the new interior of the D8 GTO-RS. The eye is immediately drawn to the new visible carbon fibre bottom structure, consisting of the floor plate and tunnel. With this design element the RS interior reflects the car’s no-nonsense, high-tech character. Additional functionalities have also been added inside, some of which can be found on the steering wheel.

Craftsmanship

Hand-built perfection

The Donkervoort craftsmanship is unmistakable in the hand-built hybrid chassis and the lightweight carbon fibre bodywork that is produced in-house.

FOR THE TRUE RACE TRACK ENTHUSIAST

NEW FEATURES

The D8 GTO-RS is a Donkervoort in its purest form. For the real track day devotee the RS offers several more extra features that not only boost the lap times but the driving pleasure as well.

These include the RS’s brand new suspension system and, available as an option for the speed demon, a refined, fully adjustable racing ABS and traction-control system as well as an automatic double-clutching feature.
