As driving experiences go, not much on the road comes close to the D8 GTO RS, the latest machine from Dutch manufacturer, Donkervoort. Having driven the earlier model during a visit to the factory, it’s an opportunity to see a little more about it and the updates that have gone into making the car even lighter at just 695kg and more powerful with 415hp… simple mathematics tells you this car is quick.

In fact, it’s so quick that the 0-100km/h time of 2.7s and the 0-200km/h time of 7.8s make it faster than my McLaren 675LT!

During Top Marques Monaco, the cars were on show but let’s hop into this lime green example and see what it’s all about.
