to coincide with their founder joop donkervoort’s 70 birthday, 70 editions – one per year of his life – of the ultra-lightweight and fast donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 were to be made. the design has now been fully realized, revealing an open-top super sports car that is their speediest, most powerful model to date. it is even said to be the first car to generate 2G…

generating 415bhp, the donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 enhances a 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine that pushes it to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds and 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.7 seconds. this makes it capable of exerting twice the earth’s gravitational pull when going around corners. at the same time, their turbocharged engine is their cleanest yet, with just 191 grams/km of CO2 emissions.

to make the model suitable at such high gravitational forces, donkervoort updated and improved a lot of their equipment. this included their wide-track suspension with intrax adjustable shock absorbers, upgrades to cutting-edge nankang AR-1 tyres, all combined with an ultra-lightweight power steering.

its power and advanced technologies benefit from a sub-700kg weight (680kg to be precise). this is thanks to 95% of the bodywork being constructed from their patented carbon-fiber material. the car also has the aerodynamics to match. by moving the exhaust system to the side, a second diffuser is added to the rear to deliver 80kg of extra downforce. 50kg more of downforce is provided by new louvres in the cycle wings, which releases air from around the tyres.

the interior is also a race-focused body of carbon fiber too. it fabricates the sports seats, quick-release steering wheel and digital instrument cluster. customers then have a choice of further options, such as either a four- or six-point harness, winder deflector, carbon fiber transmission tunnel and a rear-view camera.
