Looking decidedly menacing and ready to take a masked vigilante to his heroic deeds anywhere around the world, Donkervoort has officially revealed the Bare Naked Carbon Edition for its D8 GTO model line.
The Dutch specialty manufacturer has opted to bring a model that has for the first time only visible carbon fiber, aiming to “not only accentuates the high-tech, super-fast character of the D8 GTO” but also bring to the world “a bit of its dark side.” The constructor says the vast majority of the interior and exterior elements are made from the lightweight and strong metal – such as seats, door panels, window frame, dashboard and doorsills. There are also numerous details that were treated to the carbon fiber rework for the Bare Naked Carbon Edition – such as the ignition cylinder housing, belt-and-roll bar trim and headlight housings. Each of the Bare Naked Carbon Edition cars also goes through a special painting process, involving a unique UV-coating for each carbon fiber component, applied by hand – with the owner able to choose matte or gloss finishes, or even ask for a specific color.
Under the hood power comes courtesy of the usual 2.5-liter TFSI Audi-sourced engine that churns out 00 PS (294 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. In its standard livery the D8 GTO reaches 100 km/h from standstill in just three seconds and has a top speed of 255 km/h (158 mph) – figures that might be amended by the Bare Naked Carbon Edition’s loss of weight.
