Joop Donkervoort has at least two things going for him. First, the man has one of the most fun names to say that we can imagine. Second, he is responsible for taking Colin Chapman's Lotus Seven and continuing to push the idea toward ever-higher stratums of performance with vehicles like the D8 GTO. Xcar Films recently sat down with him for an interview, investigating how he got the idea to build such wild-looking speed machines.

It was a year ago that Dutch sports car maker Doonkervoort teased the D8 GTO on its Christmas card. It took a little longer than expected (and we lost a fiver in the process), but Santa's elves have crafted the thing in time for this Christmas. As predicted, it's "clearly a size larger" than Donkervoort's other fireballs, the GT and D8 270RS, by about a foot in length and six inches in width.
