Donkervoort Unveils £100,000 GTO Sports Car

By Paul Joseph

Dutch car maker Donkervoort has unveiled its latest creation, the GTO, boasting a 2.5-litre turbocharged Audio engine.

Billed as being one of the fastest sports cars on the European market, the first 25 of the lightweight Donkervoort GTO are reportedly to have already been sold.

Donkervoort, a relatively unknown manufacturer, have previously produced the D8, D8 270 and D8 GT which were all powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged Audi engine producing 270bhp in the most recent cars.

The new GTO model still gets an Audi powerplant, but its five-cylinder turbo produces 340bhp, which can be increased to 400bhp at the touch of a button. It also come fitted with traction control.

Deliveries of the Donkervoort GTO are expected to begin in the middle of 2012, with a price-tag of around £100,000.
