The Donkervoort D8 GTO is a convertible track-day sports car by Netherlands-based sports car company Donkervoort Automobielen BV.


The Donkervoort D8 GT - introduced in 2007 - is the first closed Donkervoort. Compared to the open version of the D8, the D8 GT has entirely new front and rear suspension, increased track width by 8 centimeters, larger brakes for increased stopping power and 17-inch aluminum wheels. With a total weight of 650 kg, the D8GT is the lightest GT in the world. This is largely due to the extensive use of carbonfiber: the entire roof, the entire rear and the doors and fenders of the car are made of this materialize.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO is a completely new creation. The engine, a 2.5L TFSI 5-cylinder turbocharged Audi engine, has a power output of 250-280 kW (340-380PS) and 450Nm of torque at 1600rpm, and the whole car weighs less than 700 kg. This low weight is due to composite materials such as the full carbon fibre body of the D8 GTO. With a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.8 kg/PS the car accelerates from 0–100 km/h in 2.8s and from 0–200 km/h in just 8.6s.

The very first GTOs were produced in a limited series of 25 Premium D8 GTOs in 2013. The production of the regular D8 GTO, available in a Touring or a Performance version, started in 2014.

Asphalt 8: Airborne



The Donkervoort D8 GTO was introduced during the Rio Update, first as an exclusive TLE-unlockable car and later as a A8Credits or A8Tokens -purchasable car. The Donkervoort D8 GTO is the first fully-fledged track-day sports car in the game and one of three Dutch cars in the game, alongside the two Savage Rivale cars.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO is a high-end Class D car. It has the following rank statistics:


The Donkervoort D8 GTO qualifies as one of the best cars in Class D. Even though its total top speed is not even in the top 10 of Class D, the Donkervoort D8 GTO can outrun most faster cars due to its other stats being very extreme.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO's total rank of 1407, with a Tuning Kit, qualifies it as one of the best cars in Class D, alongside the Mazda RX-8, Porsche 959, nanoFlowcell QUANTINO, Buick Avista Concept, Mazda 6, SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI, and 1967 Chevrolet Impala.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO has outstanding drifting, nitro efficiency, acceleration (1-1.5 sec. at MAX+PRO), and decent handling. Similarly to the Porsche 959, the Donkervoort D8 GTO's handling is not actually as good as it appears, because the sensitivity changes drastically between having nitro and not having nitro. The Donkervoort D8 GTO's drifting is the current "best" in the game, allowing it to do extremely sharp turns. This, however, can become a disadvantage for the Donkervoort D8 GTO since "oversteering" can very easily be done, especially with the huge transition in handling with the nitro deactivated.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO's nitro efficiency competes for the second best in the game, at 4/8/12 versus the 6/8/10 nitro efficiency of the Porsche 959, both in comparison to the 5/8/10 nitro efficiency of the Peugeot RCZ R. The Donkervoort D8 GTO's nitro efficiency is shared with the Rinspeed zaZen, from Class B. For comparison, the worst nitro efficiency in the game is 10/15/20.

At MAX+PRO with NS + TK + ET, the Donkervoort D8 GTO can be considered to be very similar to the Porsche 959, a car located nearer to the middle of Class D, as opposed to the end of Class D. The Porsche 959 accelerates nearly as quickly as the Donkervoort D8 GTO, with more controllable drifting, worse handling, worse level-1 nitro, equal Perfect Nitro, better level-3 nitro, a slightly higher total top speed, and a much lower raw top speed.

Another often overseen niche of the Donkervoort is its small and compact body, allowing for stunts such as forced barrel rolls to be very easily done.

Based on the above information, the Donkervoort D8 GTO qualifies as the tied 6th-best car in Class D, alongside the Porsche 959 and behind the Mazda RX-8, nanoFlowcell QUANTINO, Buick Avista Concept, SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI, and 1967 Chevrolet Impala.

Usage (TLEs)

Because of the Donkervoort D8 GTO's very good performance at MAX+PRO, it is favored for TLE purposes. However, the Donkervoort D8 GTO is less popular than the Mazda RX-8, which is able to achieve better TLE times on virtually every track, by around 1-3 seconds (with an Extra Tank). On the other hand, the Donkervoort D8 GTO does see more common use in Multiplayer TLEs, where the buffed acceleration can be used to knock down the Mazda RX-8. Adding on to that, the Donkervoort D8 GTO is non-Elite, so one doesn't have to worry about wearing down its durability.

The Donkervoort D8 GTO also has better nitro efficiency than the Mazda RX-8, so it is better than the Mazda RX-8 if the player does not have an Extra Tank activated.

Usage (Multiplayer)

Despite being on par with the Donkervoort D8 GTO, almost no one uses the Porsche 959 as a MAX+PRO TLE car, due to the Porsche 959 being much better suited for Multiplayer. Concerning the Donkervoort D8 GTO's usage in Multiplayer, it is strangely very popular, despite being very bad for Multiplayer. The Donkervoort D8 GTO's performance top the charts for "civilian cars". However, when looking at the total top speed which the Donkervoort D8 GTO can achieve from Multiplayer tuning, it is easy to see why it cannot compete with cars like the Porsche 959 and SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI in Multiplayer. The Donkervoort D8 GTO is very expensive to buy and upgrade; of course, the Porsche 959 (14 Common Blueprints + 0-16 Rare Engines), Renault DeZir (A8Tokens 180), Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 (A8Licenses 300), and SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI (A8Credits 300,000) can also be considered expensive, to some extent. However, the Ford F-150, priced at A8Credits 11,000, the Volkswagen Beetle Turbo, priced at A8Credits 26,000, and the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, priced at A8Credits 125,000, as well as the Nissan Juke Nismo, which costs A8Credits 155,000, all outshine the Donkervoort D8 GTO in Multiplayer in both performance and price.

With the introduction of the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, the Donkveroort D8 GTO has been rendered useless as it is unable to compete with it.

Usage (Other)

The Donkervoort D8 GTO, though not found in any collections or Career Mode, is still useful due to possessing a good farming race in Season 9, situated in Ipanema Showdown, Rio.


The Donkervoort D8 GTO had an original buying price of A8Credits 325,000 or A8Tokens 2,000 that has since been increased to A8Tokens 2,375

Upgrades cost A8Credits 1,967,660 or A8Tokens 13,910 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 664,375.
