Remember Donkervoort? They make the D8, a modernized Lotus Seven that also kind of looks like a wingless x-wing crossed with an anteater. Well, the company has a new version called the D8 RS powered by a turbocharged 2.5L Audi engine, which Audi has gotten up to 400 horsepower. That’s a lot of go in a motorized Radio Flyer, so there’s also a new suspension, wider track, bigger brakes, and all the requisite stuff. Donkervoort is making 40 of these for a little over a 170,000, and they’re half sold already, so get your order in now.
