Donkervoort has a knack for designing vehicles that are unlike anything else on the road. The 2017 D8 GTO-RS is no exception. With its predecessor taking out multiple Nürburgring Nordschleife lap records, the 2017 model has a serious reputation to uphold. Donkervoort is boasting that the new model will perform even better on the track. In fact, they believe it’s the lightest and fastest GTO over built. It also doesn’t hurt that the vehicle resembles the Batmobile.
The 2017 RS features completely redesigned technology and aesthetics. The Audi 2.5L R5 TFSI engine has been optimised with the assistance of long-term partner Bosch for even more acceleration and power. Bosch also collaborated on the launch control and a double clutch function that will improve lap times. The enhanced aerodynamics and new suspension system provide the RS with a stronger grip on the front axle. Despite the highs performance, the D8 GTO-RS remains a completely street-legal sports car.
The interior is fully made-to-measure and is fitted with a carbon fibre tunnel. The D8 GTO-RS will be available for purchase later this winter. As a limited edition model, there were only 40 vehicles created.
