Donkervoort, for those unfamiliar, is a Dutch firm that makes the D8 GTO – arguably (if not empirically) the most extreme take on the original Lotus Seven ever to roam or roar around road or track. Blister Berg, meanwhile, is a private circuit – not unlike the Monticello Motor Club in New York or Ascari in Spain – where we drove the Porsche 911 Turbo S last year.
The tie that binds them together, as you might have guessed, is that Donkervoort (aside from having a branch office at the track) holds the lap record for production cars there – trouncing numerous supercars in the process. So to celebrate, the Dutch niche automaker has announced a new D8 GTO Blister Berg Edition.
Details are scarce at the moment, as Donkervoort is saying only that the special GTO will encompass a new front-end design and various upgrades developed on the site. Production will be limited to just 14 examples, with further information to follow in the new year – so watch this space.
