donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70, the world’s first 2G super sports car

limited to 70 cars, the donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 is a super sports car created to celebrate joop donkervoort’s — donkervoort’s founder — 70th birthday. ‘turning 70 deserves a gift, and so we’re given our founder joop donkervoort his favorite kind of gift — the D8 GTO-JD70.’ powered by an optimized, endurance-racing version of the audi sport 2,5L five-cylinder turbocharged motor, the JD70 weighs less than 800kg.

developed with both the road and the racetrack in mind, the donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 is said to smash through the 2G barrier to deliver the astounding cornering ability to match its crushing acceleration. the D8 GTO-JD70 is said to be capable of pulling more than 2G of lateral acceleration in corners, even in its standard trim and on its standard nankang tires, and more than 1G of acceleration.

‘the JD70 has moved beyond the normal measures for acceleration and braking, and we’re using G forces now, but the car is still a pure driver’s machine like nothing else on the market,’ comments denis donkervoort, donkervoort automobielen managing director. ‘the JD70 is the distillation of everything we know and everything we’ve learned on the road and the racetrack, from track days and from customer talks and, of course, from joop’s own ideas on what a supercar should be to its driver. donkervoort has worked to deliver a supercar for people who ache for the heightened senses and the purity of unfiltered driving experiences, and the JD70 has been designed to allow drivers to form an unshakable bond with their machines.’

 

only 70 JD70s will be built – one for each year of joop’s life (so far) – with the first deliveries scheduled for june 11, 2020. the D8 GTO-JD70 will start from €163.636,36 (before taxes).
