429bhp Donkervoort D8 GTO Individual Series revealed

The final road-going Donkervoort D8 GTO is more customisable and powerful than ever

Dutch car maker Donkervoort has announced its D8 GTO Individual Series, a swansong for the open-wheel sports car. Said to be the final variant available for road use, the firm will allow buyers to customise almost every aspect of the model, and has given it more power too. Prices begin at €197,109 (c£170,000) including local taxes.

The standard D8 GTO has always been available with some level of chassis customisation, but the Individual Series takes it up a notch. Buyers can opt for setups that best suit their use case, ranging from all-out track use to touring – Donkervoort will even provide bespoke luggage for the latter with made-to-measure race suits and helmets available for the track.

It’s design is familiar to the standard D8 GTO, but a number of aero appendages such as the front canards and air outlets have been removed for a cleaner aesthetic. Should you plan to use it on the track though, it can all be re-fitted to provide the best cooling and aerodynamic performance possible. 

The Individual Series also features tweaks under the surface to reduce cabin vibrations, and improve driveability and refinement. Niceties such as air conditioning, reversing cameras and even a radar detector are on the options list, too.

Donkervoort has collaborated with German tuner Abt Sportsline with the GTO’s powertrain upgrades,  giving its 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder a power bump. Up 14bhp and 37lb ft over the limited-run D8 GTO-JD70, output now sits at 429bhp and 420lb ft of torque thanks to the use of an uprated cooling system, higher-flow fuel injectors and tweaked ECU mapping. 

Paired to its circa-700kg kerb weight, the GTO will reach 62mph in 2.6sec, and 124mph in just 7.7sec. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed Tremec transmission as standard with a rev-match function, but the six-speed sequential from the JD70 R can be fitted as an option. 

Donkervoort’s standard steering rack can be swapped for one with a faster ratio too, and adjustable electronic power steering for an easier drive around town. Further brake configurations, the chassis setup and even battery options can all be switched by the buyer too.

Paint options are bespoke to each customer, with multi-colour schemes, completely bespoke colours and even a paintless finish available. The interior can also be customised to match, with seats (from comfort items to full carbonfibre racing buckets) available in a number of colours, patterns and materials. 

A first delivery date is yet to be announced, but the D8 GTO Individual Series will set you back from €197,109 (c£170,000) including taxes, before you add a raft of presumably pricey bespoke options to the equation.
