Donkervoort Unveil More Potent GTO-RS
Donkervoot from the Netherlands has just unveiled a stronger version of their GTO dubbed the GTO-RS. Power still comes from an Audi-sourced 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine. Although specific power figures have not been announced, the company says it will produce more torque than ever before and promises even better acceleration. The regular GTO completes the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 2.8 seconds so this will probably be closer to 2.5 seconds.
Improved downforce is part of the package which means you get 50 kg’s over the front and rear axle. This was done thanks to a revised front end, a few small spoilers and some custom vanes.The GTO-RS also includes fully adjustable ABS and traction control systems as well as a revised suspension system and an automatic double-clutching feature.
Only 65 units of this sports car be build made of up; 40 regular models, 15 bare carbon models and 10 Race Edition models that will get a non-street legal sequential transmission.
