Gumpert Apollo Speed
Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH is a manufacturer of exclusive super sports cars based in Altenburg / Thuringia, Germany. The founder and managing director is Roland Gumpert, former manager of the Audi Sports department, his guidance leading to 25 victories in World Championship races and 4 Rallye World Championship titles gained for the Quattros from Ingolstadt.
German sports car manufacturer Gumpert has unveiled a faster version of its Apollo supercar at this week’s Geneva Motor Show.Called the Apollo Speed, the revised supercar features a reduced ride height and revised aerodynamics to deliver blistering performance numbers.
Setting apart the Speed from previous Apollo models are bigger wheelarches, a new front splitter and revised air intakes. The new car will also feature a two-tone paint scheme, an adjustable rear spoiler and new tail lamps.
Unique features of the latest Apollo variant include its carbon-fiber and aluminum sandwich underbody, as well as its fixed wheel caps at the front and rotating rears – a similar set-up to that used in F1.
The powerful 8 cylinder Biturbo of Apollo Speed provides an optional 650 / 700 / 800 HP and a torque of 850 / 875 / 900 Nm. His performance is top class: The car can go from standing still to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds. A speed of 200 km/h is reached in just 8.9 seconds. His maximum speed is over 360 km/h.
