new donkervoort is comming up

Discussion in '2001 Donkervoort D8 150' started by the carwhizard, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. The new donkervoort is even better. So it has an tuned engine with 225hp and an topspeed of 250km/h or 167mph. So great supercars come only from the netherlands. Just look at spyker.

    I felt like a Formula 1 driver, absilutely great!
    Racing in a Donkervoort different from racing in a Ferrari (which is much to heavy, much too confortable).
    Racing in a Donkervoort is pretty much like Formula racing on legal road tracks.

    the new one is getting the 2.7 v6 right...then the bi-turbo RS-4 engine would fit to....hmm 420hp and 650kg...Joop I wanna order one!<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    Well, as most people can't even keep this car on the road with 'only' 220 BHP, just imagine what 450 would do to you!! You would probably be making donuts all the time <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"> It's just too light to handle more BHP's...<!-- Signature -->

    The original plan was to put in a 2.8 V6 from audi, tuned up to 275 hp, but it was not considered street legal. I think I'll hear more about it in two weeks on the 25th anniversary party...

    Is that the D20 you're talking about? They should release the jubilee Donkervoort sometime this year.
     
  10. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    Well, this is it...

    The Donkervoort J25 Concept. It's not just a prototype, it will go in production next year. It has a 270 bhp Audi V6-engine. I expect this car to be faster to 100 km/h than a Tuscan S.
     
  11. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    Some more pics.
    Final version will be unveiled at Geneva.
     
  12. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    Donkervoort will also develop an ultralight racing version of this model.
    270hp at 400-500 kg? drool...

     
  13. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    great pics!!
    they look awesome
    it looks like there are quite a lot of people on this site who know what they're talking about
     
  14. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    just one more question though...
    why is there a side exhaust when the exhaust comes out again at the back??
     
  15. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    Probably because there is no place under the car or anywhere else. A side exit would be illegal though so that's why it has a rear exit.
     
  16. Re: new donkervoort is comming up

    No, that's part of the concept. the old Lotus S7 has it, my S8 has it, the newest D8s have it. It would be a shame to get the exhaust away from the right side of the car. Be carefull though, because when you get out of the car after a quick drive, it's quite hot.
