Profile

Dutch manufacturer Donkervoort's D8 was a bare bones track focused convertible, along the lines of a Lotus Seven. Their claim to fame being a stunning record lap of the Nurburgring in 7 min 18 sec, eclipsing Porsche's legendary Carrera GT by a whopping 14 seconds.

The 4 cylinder front mounted Audi engine produced 270hp. As this only had to move 630kg, the resulting acceleration was amazing, with 0-60mph taking just 3.5 seconds, phenomenal in 2004! This was a pure drivers car with amazing handling and instant response and a total lack of electronic driver aids to come to your rescue. A limited production run of 25 hand built units was made at a surprisingly high asking price of well over 100k.

It should be noted that the actual Nurburgring record car was a one-off with 350hp and a hardtop roof, but in all other respects the DS 270 RS was identical.
