The essence of “No compromise”
Donkervoort D8 270RS - 2006
The D8 270RS is the car that best embodies the “No Compromise, No Nonsense” philosophy of Donkervoort. This model was developed with the sole purpose of making it the fastest D8 model Donkervoort could make, whatever the implications that went with it.
One of those implications was that just 25 of them were ever made.
The Donkervoort D8 270RS sat at the pinnacle of the D8 Audi range, and was developed as an homage to the car that destroyed the production-car lap record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 2006.
This silver rocket was specced very comprehensively. The car has all the track-honed chassis reinforcements as well as many exposed carbon-fibre body parts. It is also equipped with a traction control, which was a very rare option at the time.
This undoubtedly is the most fun-to-drive D8 money can buy. If you are planning on a dual-use (road and track) supercar, this is the ideal 270RS.
The car comes with a six-month factory warranty and a Certificate of Authenticity.
The interior of this 270RS will put you in the mood for some proper driving, with exposed chassis reinforcement, Stack switches on the steering wheel, exposed carbon-fibre dashboard and a kill switch. When you enter this 270RS you immediately know that this is a car that means business.
The black leather nicely contrasts the silver exterior, and the 270RS-only gear knob is a unique touch.

This 270RS has been driven regularly and that is great news. Donkervoort cars are made to be driven and it helps the car to stay in its best shape. The car has received a very major service recently, including a new timing belt, all new fluids and a new windscreen.
The car is in very good technical condition. This 270RS is ready to take its next owner on an adventure with many years of care-free driving pleasure.
The optical condition can be improved so it is up to the next owner to give it some TLC!
