Donkervoort D8 is a series of ultra-light weight sports cars manufactured by Dutch car manufacturer Donkervoort in Lelystad, Netherlands since 1993. They have been produced in several variants, starting with the original Donkervoort D8 Zetec (1993-1999), which used engines made by Ford; since 1999 the cars have used engines built by German automobile manufacturer Audi.
Donkervoort announced the next-generation D8 GTO in December 2011, which was larger and slightly heavier than earlier D8 models. All GTOs are powered by the five-cylinder 2.5T 20v Audi R5 engine.
The D8 GTO models include the Donkervoort D8 GTO (2013-2021), D8 GTO Premium (2013), D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition (2014-2015) and the D8 GTO RS (2016-2021). In 2015 the all-carbon fiber GTO Bare Naked Carbon (BNCE) appeared. In 2019 a special edition, Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70, was created, followed by the Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 R the next year, in honor of founder Joop Donkervoort’s 70th birthday.
Donkervoort released the Donkervoort D8 GTO Individual Series in September 2021 which offers the ability to customize the vehicle to the client’s exact specifications. Donkervoort claims that the only limit is what’s legal in the European Union. It also marks the end of D8 production. The starting price is €162,900 but the final price depends on the customizations chosen.
Donkervoort released the Donkervoort D8 GTO Individual Series in the US in July 2022; it was the first Donkervoort officially released in the US with a starting price of US$240,000 and the first example was delivered to a buyer in Florida. Two others were shipped to clients in California and Colorado.
