You can pronounce Donkervoort however you like (there are few who will know any better); we prefer to pronounce it Donkerdamnthatshot. But, that's just us.

You're looking at Dutch carmaker Donkervoort's 1,430 pound coupe version of their D8 roadster. Drop one of three available Audi engines (180 hp, 210 hp, and 270 hp) into that carbon-fiber frame and you got yerself a wicked-fast means of ridding the world of expensive 18" tires.

Though these are just renderings, we'll probably see the real thing at the Geneva show in March. From online translations, it looks like Donkervoort will only build 50 of these pieces of speeding art. No word on price, but if you gotta ask...

A couple more renderings after the jump.

      Joop Donkervoort is a genius who has developed Chapman's concept as faithfully as Porsche have developed their 911. Now that Donkervoort are regularly knocking off the fastest laps at Nurburgring, they have become a target for the likes of VW - via their brand Lamborghini - and, of course, Porsche. I'll take a Donkervoort D8 GT over the mundane offerings of the German competition - and I vastly prefer it to the products of that other Dutch brand, Spyker.

      It looks like a Lotus meets Prowler over a long weekend and the off spring is that of the art with a carbon-fiber frame variety. Lets get some pictures of it at its coming out party and see just what we got here!?

      Let's hope we never see it on the road. It would be a waste of good materials.

      According to the reliable AutoVisie Donkervoort will be building a max of 50 units a year. The D8 GT will be shown in Geneva next March.
