Dutch car maker Donkervoort has almost finished their test work for the new D8 GTO. Following earlier information and specification, we can now share with you the results of the tests done together with Audi.
Donkervoort have chosen to use a, five cylinder 340hp 2.5 TFSI Audi motor. This makes it possible to provide either a standard 340hp model or an uprated 400hp model. Torque tops out at 450Nm from about 1,600rpm. To access the extra power, a switch is located in the dashboard, next to a button for the traction control, another first for the D8.
A sprint from zero to 100km/h is done in three seconds, the top speed is 255km/h. A sprint from 100 to 200km/h in the standard mode with 340 horsepower is accomplished in an impressive 6.1 seconds.
One last test session at the high speed track in Nardo and tests for type approval will be done in the upcoming months following the official launch in the autumn. Donkervoort reports that 19 of the 25 cars have been reserved.
