Car brand Donkervoort recently announced that it will add 25 more cars to the production run of the all-new F22 due to high demand. The announcement comes after the initial 75 slots announced last December were all sold out. Donkervoort will produce a total of 100 F22s. Currently, the first cars have been handed over to new owners and the F22 production line is still ongoing.

According to the Dutch automaker, the majority of orders come from Western Europe. However, the brand also receives orders and inquiries from as far away as North America, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Southern Europe, Scandinavia and even Israel. This model has an appearance quite similar to the brand’s D8 GTO model but has been renovated to become a supercar of a new era.

The car is quite perfect with a power-to-weight ratio of 666 horsepower per ton. This parameter is even more perfect than a Bugatti Veyron and the car is equipped with a 2.5-liter, turbocharged, in-line 5-cylinder engine supplied by Audi, adjusted to create maximum power. 492 horsepower. This power is transmitted to the rear wheel equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission connected to a Torsen limited-slip differential. This car model is capable of accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the vehicle can be reached up to 290 km/h.

The brand’s aim to achieve a minimum volume level was important to Donkervoort for the development of the F22 and the resulting street-legal two-seater. The chassis combines thin-walled tubular steel with carbon fiber, creating a car that is twice as stiff as the previous generation D8 GTO. This also improves ride and handling, allowing the 18-inch wide front, 19-inch rear Nankang tires to grip the road more effectively.

When you need to stop, the steel brake system with 4-piston calipers provides more effective deceleration. However, the F22’s braking system does not have power assistance. The vehicle is equipped with independent suspension with an optional hydraulic system to lift the vehicle by 35mm to comfortably clear speed bumps.

The car’s interior compartment is also equipped with an optional iPad-integrated infotainment system. The driver has a small digital display for instrumentation and just a few buttons around the shifter to manage the various systems. The carbon fiber roof panels can be lifted off by hand and stored in the back. Recaro seats are available with six-point harnesses approved for both road and track use.

This model has a starting price in Europe of 245,000 Euros and has a comprehensive list of options that can increase the price of the car significantly.
