S8A – step by step project

We now own an S8A in addition to our GTO. The longlist of to-do points is huge! Over the next months we will add the full story here about perfectioning the car. It is our aim to bring the car in a 100% perfect and original condition. Also check my Instagram account @donkervoortd8gto for regular picture updates!
