Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 Bare Naked Carbon Edition
Donkervoort Automobielen has taken the clothes off its D8 GTO-JD70 with the long-planned Bare Naked Carbon Edition (BNCE).
Available with either clear or coloured lacquer, the Bare Naked Carbon Edition gives the JD70 a stunning, high-art texture and highlights the precision of Donkervoort's carbon-fibre expertise, all while making the 700kg car several kilograms lighter.
JD70s with BNCE technology can be delivered in a raw, naked carbon look or with a coloured lacquer coating in either matte or polished finishes.
The first production car in the world with 2G of cornering muscle, the JD70 was developed as a tribute for the 70th birthday of Donkervoort founder, Joop Donkervoort. The BNCE, though, has been developed to help personalise every JD70 Donkervoort builds.
BNCE developed to give customers the opportunity to lighten and customize their cars beyond the usual colour palate.
"The woven carbon remains the same," Donkervoort Automobielen Managing Director Denis Donkervoort explained. "We use specially developed inks mixed into the clear coat to create the look of the colour in the fibre. We can also match the interior coloured carbon pieces to the exterior bodywork," he confirmed.
More than 95 percent of the standard JD70 bodywork is in carbon-fibre and the BNCE program, which we began in 2018, allows owners to see what they've paid for.
The bodywork of the JD70 is made of a carbon-fibre/Kevlar weave and even the cycle wings are carbon fibre/ Kevlar.
