Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70
The Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 has been developed as a tribute for the 70th birthday of its founder, Joop Donkervoort.
Powered by an optimized, endurance-racing version of the crushingly strong Audi Sport 2,5L five-cylinder turbocharged motor, the JD70 weighs less than 700kg.
It is not a specialist track car, and has been developed with both the road and the racetrack in mind.
The next installment of the supercar-killing Donkervoort D8 GTO legend will smash through the 2G barrier to deliver the astounding cornering ability to match its crushing acceleration.
The Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 will be capable of pulling more than 2G of lateral acceleration in corners, even in its standard trim and on its standard Nankang tyres, and more than 1G of acceleration.
It has also moved into a bold new world with the availability of fully adjustable, electric power steering to reduce the physical driving effort while maintaining Donkervoort’s traditional steering intimacy.
“The JD70 has moved beyond the normal measures for acceleration and braking and we’re using G forces now, but the car is still a pure driver’s machine like nothing else on the market,” Donkervoort Automobielen managing director Denis Donkervoort said.
“The JD70 is the distillation of everything we know and everything we’ve learned on the road and the racetrack, from track days and from customer talks and, of course, from Joop’s own ideas on what a supercar should be to its driver.
“Donkervoort has worked to deliver a supercar for people who ache for the heightened senses and the purity of unfiltered driving experiences, and the JD70 has been designed to allow drivers to form an unshakeable bond with their machines,” he said.
Only 70 JD70s will be built – one for each year of Joop’s life (so far) – with the first deliveries scheduled for June 11, 2020.
The Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 will start from €163.636,36 (before taxes).
ATS Corsa RR Turbo
ATS CORSA has created a unique project of its kind, aimed at offering a new opportunity for racers worldwide: the RR Turbo represents the balance point between low costs and high performance, 800kg(1763lb)/600hp, allowing the drivers to be highly competitive in many categories.
ATS Corsa is proud to announce that the RR Turbo is now available on the market and the first customer cars are already under construction and will be delivered by the end of the Summer.
During the past months the Racing department of ATS Automobili has carried out severe reliability and performance tests that improved the RR Turbo's qualities. Suitable for all those professional or gentlemen drivers who are looking for an adaptable and effective racing car, the RR Turbo will be eligible to race internationally with the FIA homologation. Thanks to this, it can compete in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from 24h Series, VLN, International Endurance Series, E2Sh, Clubsport, Hill Climb Championships, and even Time Attack series.
With an estimated vehicle maintenance cost per kilometer of around 2.30€, the RR turbo is highly competitive on the budget, allowing drivers to focus more on racing than on maintenance.
Prices are truly competitive as they start from 132.000 Euro plus tax for the Clubsport and 164.900 Euro plus tax for the lighter and range-topping Serie Carbonio. Among the special components and available optionals there's a full carbon bodywork, carbo-ceramic braking system with ultralight cnc billet machined calipers, forged wheels, three-way adjustable suspension, high downforce bi-plane rear carbon spoiler and the quick-lift airjack system. The Company is planning the production of 30 cars per year.
The RR Turbo shows its remarkable quality both internally and externally. Customers will benefit from of a large use of high level technology, starting from the Winner Techno Package (electro-actuated paddle-gearbox, traction control system, assisted gearshifts) to the pushrod and pull rod suspension system with Tractive Adjustable electronic shock absorbers to the autoclave treated composite bodywork, available in both fiberglass (45kg-99.2lb) and carbon fibre (25kg-55lb).
An advanced and very light ATS CORSA optional braking system with 4-piston titanium calipers (coated with DLC - Diamond Light Carbon), CNC milled in aluminum-lithium alloy 2099-t83, is available instead of the standard Brembo set.
The construction of the whole frame with the roll cage module use full TIG welds ensuring top quality levels of lightness and rigidity.
