Dutch automobile maker Donkervoort is swelling with pride over their newest release, the D8 GTO-RS ($165K).  A bit larger than its predecessor, this new sports car boasts at being one of the fastest street legal vehicles in the world.  The 5 cylinder AUDI 2.5L R5 TFSI engine can move this 1,543 pound vehicle from 0-62 mph in a blazing 2.8 seconds and top out around 167 mph.

The tubular steel chassis is only 119 lbs and is produced in-house to assure that the light weight does not diminish the needed strength.  Carbon fiber panels also keep the vehicle’s weight down.

The fully equipped dashboard provides driver customization including traction control and a race module switch.  The upholstery of the D8 GTO-RS is fully optional for the owner and includes hundreds of fabrics, leathers, colors, and stitching to assure each of the forty limited run vehicles is unique.  Whether touring or on the track, this powerful machine should offer a thrilling ride.
