You win in Dubai… so you name your car after it

Donkervoort is a Dutch manufacturer of hand-built light-weight sports cars based on the same formula that made the Lotus 7 and Caterhams the success stories which they are today. I must say though that the Donkervoort is so much sexier.

In January at the 24 Hours of Dubai, Donkervoort won the GT4 class and in honor of that special win, a special edition is gracing its lineup.

Only 10 of the 24H of Dubai special editions will ever be produced, based on the D8 270 Roadster or the D8GT 270 Coupe, both packing turbocharged 1.8-liter Audi engines with 270bhp on tap.

Considering they are pretty light cars, having 270bhp should mean these are zippy little machines… and they are! According to the factory, 0-100km/h in 4 seconds with a top speed of 245km/h. I want!
