Donkervoort D8 GTO breaks lap record at Bilster Berg Drive Resort

Last weekend the Donkervoort D8 GTO broke the lap record at the German Bilster Berg circuit. The 380 hp Performance version set the new record for street-legal production cars at 1 minute 46.12 seconds.

German driver Maik Rosenberg was first to break the record with a time of 1 minute 47.4. Ultimately, though, it was Denis Donkervoort who claimed the absolute top time of 1:46.12. Donkervoort drove the record for production cars on street-homologated tyres, in wet weather.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO figures an acceleration from 0 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, a total weight of just 695 kg.
