Dutch Treat, Redux: Donkervoort D8 GT Coming to Geneva

Donkervoort, Holland's answer to the UK's Caterham, is working up a fixed-roof GT version of its speedy D8 roadster. Like the D8, the GT is fitted with scissor doors (natch), and powered by Audi's 1.8T 20V engine, offered in a range of rated horsepower (180 to 270). It'll also get the same ultralight chassis and suspension components. Unlike the roadster it'll come with an aero kit of carbon-fiber diffusers, and then there's that roof, all to make it more conducive to serious track-day flogging sessions and perhaps even serious competition. The Donks say they can build around 50 GTs per year, making them rarer than a parliament minister in a hash bar. We'll see it in Geneva next March.
