The Gumpert Apollo is the first and only supercar produced by Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH in Germany. The Apollo is a street-legal race car with up to 650bhp weighing less than 1100kg. It has an Audi-sourced, 4.2L V8 engine with two turbochargers and gull-wing doors.

Prices start at 198.000 EUR (£190,000 GBP) $380,000 USD

Designed to take on the Porsche 911 GT3, it is a mid engined, rear wheel drive two seater constructed on a tubular Chromoly frame, with fiberglass or optional carbon fiber body panels. An Audi 4.2L V8 engine is joined to a six-speed sequential gearbox. Estimated top speed is 360 km/h (223 mph) with 0-100km/h (0–62 mph) reached in 3.0 seconds.

The project is the creation of Roland Gumpert, a former Audi employee who oversaw many a rallying success working as competitions chief in their Quattro division. Gumpert's partner is Roland Mayer, the boss of German tuning house MTM.

Gumpert claims the car has as much downforce as any car that would run in the DTM German touring car championship and hopes to produce 150 Apollo's between 2005 and 2008.

Recent ChangesEdit

  • At the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Gumpert unveiled the top-ranging Gumpert Apollo Speed - a monstrous hypercar based on the mid-ranging 700 hp model. What separates the Speed from other 'regular' sun gods are a new induction system, revised wheel arches, re-tweaked rear end w/ a more efficient adjustable spoiler. This translates to a 3.0 second sprint from naught to 100 kph (62 mph) and 8.9 to 200 kph (124 mph). Keep your foot firmly planted on the throttle and you will reach a top whack of 360 kph (224 mph). Other goodies will include leather or Alcantara trim + competition-style removable steering wheel and a racing-sourced four-point harness. [1]

Hybrid ModelsEdit

The vehicle is powered by a 3.3-liter 630 hp V8 supplanted by a 100kW electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack weighing 190 kilos in place of the regular car's 4.2-liter Audi twin turbo mill. Like other hybrids, the Apollo's setup will make use of braking energy to recharge its batteries.
