The new D8 GT is based on the open-top RS model but features a new hard-top roof and wing doors. Only the front end of the frame remained unchanged with respect to that of the open D8.
The suspension has also been modified, causing the wheelbase to stretch 8cm, and the brakes have been given an upgrade as well. Extensive use of carbon-fiber was employed to keep the car’s kerb weight at just 680kg
Power comes from an Audi-sourced 1.8L four-cylinder engine developing between 180 and 270hp. The first cars are expected to be delivered in August with prices starting at €90,000.
