Donkervoort D8 realized early in the GTO, open version of the D8 GT. The Dutch manufacturer has given this anticipation to its customers in exchange of Christmas greetings, giving few details on the new model: in addition to the monocoque carbon fiber, what is certain is that the GTO will not mount the 4-cylinder 1.8 turbo source Audi’s coupe, but another engine from the German. My thoughts turn immediately to the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder 340 hp in the TT-RS and RS3, but in the small trunk of Donkervoort could even reach the 2.0 TFSI.

The D8 GT, the GTO from which it derives, was built in the road version to approve the competition model, which has run successfully in the GT4 class. Weighing in at just 650 hp and a maximum power of 270 hp, the D8 GT is the current flagship of the range D8, which features models roadster 150 E, 180 E 210 E and 235 E, all with the old 1.8 20V Turbo Audi. With the arrival of the D8 GTO, is likely to give way for the renewal of the entire range of engines.
