The Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 was revealed earlier today. The Dutch low volume manufacturer has been producing ultra-lightweight sportscars since 1978 out of its headquarters in Lelystad.

In recent years, the Donkervoort has grown more extreme. For example, the GTO, announced in 2013, used 2.5 litre TFSI 5-cylinder turbocharged Audi engine to produce 380 hp in a 700 kg package. The Donkervoort ethos, “No Compromise”, means these cars ship without ABS, ESP or power steering.

With this in mind, Donkervoort’s latest creation seems all the more absurd.
