D8 GTO s Red Donkervoort

More comfort, without compromise

More comfort, without compromise

A true Donkervoort

The D8 GTO-S is a true Donkervoort, for the ultimate driving experience on the most beautiful roads throughout Europe and beyond! 

The GTO-S (Sport) greatly resembles its predecessor – the D8 GTO. However, the focus with the ‘S’ – in addition to the breathtaking performance – is on even more comfort and ease of use.

A true Donkervoort, thus, but further optimised for street use. Perfect for longer tours, weekend getaways and holidays, yet still offering the ultimate sports car experience.

power through weight

Despite the added comfort, obtained through modifications such as specially developed comfort-shock absorbers, the GTO-S is a thoroughbred sports car.

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

Combined with the Audi 2.5L R5 TFSI engine that boasts 340 or 360 bhp, the result is the unique horsepower-to-weight ratio for which Donkervoort is known.

The combination of the tubular steel frame and large carbon composite panels – also called a hybrid chassis – has resulted in a unique combination of significantly increased stiffness and ultra-light weight. The body is also made entirely of carbon fiber.

Thanks to the use of this ultra-strong, ultra-light material, the total weight of the GTO-S remains below 740 kg!

Looks can be deceiving

Extremely low to the ground, with a sleek, ‘beastly’ nose reminiscent of a lion's head. An indication of the power and dynamism of the D8 GTO-S. An appearance that is not only beautiful but also exciting and uncommon.

Inspired by the genius of nature, we also find ingenious ways to make our cars more aerodynamic, thus improving the performance, handling and even the downforce.

Placement of the engine at the front – as in every Donkervoort – is needed to accommodate the longitudinally mounted five-cylinder 2.5L TFSI engine from Audi, while achieving the amazing balance in the design.

UNIQUE DOORS

The knowledge and skill in working with carbon fiber are once again demonstrated with the unique invention of a one-piece door (including the integrated hinges) that can withstand a lateral impact of around 1500 kg, with hinges that can handle a force of over 1100 kg. And the icing on the cake? The total weight of the door beam with hinges is just 980 grams! Technical innovations that set Donkervoort apart.

WITH OR WITHOUT A ROOF

For many, a roofless Donkervoort is the ultimate Donkervoort. Open driving, with the wind in your hair, the sun at your back and the open road ahead. But sometimes a roof is not merely a luxury. Weather conditions or parking the car safely can make it essential. The lightweight fabric roof, with colour to match the upper doors, is a snap to close and stores compactly in the boot of the GTO-S.

Technical specifications

The D8 GTO-S is made for the street. This unique GTO-S is intended to get your heart pumping and invigorate your senses beyond compare, but – above all – to let you experience driving as you never have before. A wide range of technical specifications will help you further facilitate the use of your Donkervoort.

Acceleration3.3 seconds 0-100 km/h

Interior

The new interior of the D8 GTO-S reflects the true identity of the car – a purebred driver‘s car. A perfect driving position, an additional armrest, a clear dashboard, yet with the same ‘No Compromise’ design uncluttered with unnecessary luxury. The culmination of this approach is perhaps the fully-equipped carbon fiber dashboard, which with its minimalist yet high-tech switches evokes an association with aviation. On the dashboard you will also find a special race-module switch (optional) and traction control knob that can be adjusted to the driver‘s preferences.

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.
