Donkervoort D8 GTO 

  • built in Holland
  • 2012
  • 400 HP 2.5L
  • 158 mph
 
But if you really want something that can give the D8 GTO a little lesson in bottle rockets 101, the Ariel Atom is the clear choice, thanks to a top-of-the-table V8 model that produces an astonishing 500 horsepower, all for a price - $225,000 - that’s $30,000 north of the D8 GTO.

The first 25 specially designed GTOs are also equipped with a 2.5 TFSI motor, which is 30 kg lighter than the standard Audi variant.

2012 Donkervoort D8 GTO - Top Speed

www.topspeed.com
Even if it belongs to a pretty exclusive automotive niche, the Donkervoort D8 GTO still doesn’t lack in competitors.
What’s right in the D8 GTO’s wheelhouse is the KTM X-Bow R, which is powered - ironically - by an Audi sourced engine with an output of 300 horsepower.
