Donkervoort D8 GTO: A Wild Ride Inspired by Lotus 7 [w/Video]
Donkervoort. The name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but the Dutch automaker has made a tricky-to-pronounce name for itself with the D8 GTO. This incredible ride was inspired by the Lotus 7 and it has insane styling and power to match. It looks very Lotus-esque with a dose of Batman's Tumbler and perhaps a little Mad Max thrown in just to keep things interesting. The interior is custom made, so each one is going to fit the tastes of writes the check. PHOTOS: See More of the Eye-Catching Donkervoort D8 GTO
Also, there is carbon fiber everywhere, including the dashboard, which makes the two-seater a very lightweight 1,500 pounds. To say this thing is fast is a gross understatement.

Hiding underneath that one-of-a-kind design is a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine courtesy of Audi. It provides 380 horsepower that launches the D8 GTO from 0-62 in all of 2.8 seconds. This supercar will take you all the way up to a top speed of 168 miles per hour.
I bet you want to drive one, right? Well, you can't unless you live in Europe. It's just another in a long list of cars that aren't finding their way to American shores.
