Donkervoort, the Dutch manufacturer, announced that their latest project, the D8 GT goes into production. The D8 GT was unveiled as a prototype last year at the Geneva Motor Show.
The front fascia has been thoroughly overhauled, now with integrated headlamps and larger air intakes, which favors the aerodynamics of the car. The wheelbase for the D8 GT model has grown by 8 cm over the D8. The roof and the doors are entirely made of carbon, so the weight is reduced at only 650 kg.
The D8 GT production version is powered by 1.8 liter turbocharged Audi 4-cylinder engine producing 180, 210 or 270 horsepower.
It will be limited to only 50 units a year, each priced at 90,000 euro. First delivers will be ready for June 2008.
