    Donkervoort D8E Wide Track 2003–2012

    Donkervoort:
    Donkervoort Automobielen BV is a manufacturer of authentic hand-built and ultra light weight sports cars based in Lelystad, Netherlands. The car brand was founded in 1978 by Joop Donkervoort.

    In 1996, Donkervoort's Ford engines were replaced by Audi engines. Donkervoort's motto - "No Compromise" - means driving without any electronic aids such as ABS (Anti-lock braking system), Electronic stability program (ESP) or power steering.
    -------------------------------

    Donkervoort D8E Wide Track

    Since 2003, the Donkervoort is equipped with the Audi 1.8T 20V E-gas turbocharged engine. In the D8, the engine is available with 150 bhp, 180 bhp, 210 bhp and 270 bhp. Thanks to its total weight of 630 kilograms, this results in an acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h between 3.8 and 5.2 seconds depending on the type.

    Well you said it all. It was a race version. I understand that it costs a minor fraction of the Carrera GT, but with slicks and huge wings (I've seen the car) there is no way any road car can beat that.
