D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition”

For the first time in its 37-year history, Donkervoort was represented in the world-famous Mille Miglia; a fantastic rally on the most breathtaking roads in Italy. The D8 GTO joined this legendary event – by invitation, and as Official Support Car – which brings together the most famous racing cars of the past and the most high-profile supercars of today. Donkervoort sees this participation as an exceptional milestone, and is celebrating it with the launch of a special edition; the Donkervoort D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition”.

D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition”
During the thousand-mile rally from Brescia to Rome and back, the focus is on ultimate driving pleasure in mostly historical, purist sports cars on wonderful roads. This is music to the years of the Dutch purist sports car manufacturer, which still operates under the motto ‘No Compromise’ when it comes to the search for the purest driving experience and pleasure.

The emphasis in the D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition” is therefore on maximising use of the GTO for touring purposes. The car was built with the aim of increasing both the ease-of-use and total comfort of the car, to ensure enjoyment of driving the GTO on Europe’s most beautiful roads. For this reason, the Donkervoort D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition” is a true touring version, in contrast with its more circuit-oriented predecessors, such as the D8 GTO Performance and the Bilster Berg Edition.

A quick look at some of the specifications for the Donkervoort D8 GTO “1000 Miglia Edition”:
