Gumpert Apollo Sport [Slideshow]By Staff


Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur

Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur is a German-based company building supercars. The first model produced is the Gumpert Apollo, followed by the Apollo Sport. That was last year. The car you see on the photo above is the 2008 Gumpert Apollo Sport! Equiped with a V8 twin turbo engine with 800hp, and 0-60mph in 3 seconds.

The apollo sport is the rebel amongst the super sport cars. Its bodywork combines sexy curves with potent edges and angles and aims for uncompromising aerodynamics. A clear demonstration of the principle “form follows function”. Its challenging sporting design derives from the requirement to built a street legal racing car, whose number one priority is to provide extraordinary performance on the circuit, but at the same time embodying a vehicle suitable for daily use. The apollo sport is equipped with an extended aerodynamic package and, in contrast to the three part spoiler of the apollo, possesses a racing wing which gives even more down force and pushes the apollos’s maximum speed up to 360 km/h (About 224miles/hr).[Serious Wheels]

I guess that is why this car is named after the Greek God Apollo: a many-talented Greek god of prophecy, music, intellectual pursuits, healing, plague, and sometimes, the sun. For some reason though, this car reminds me of some insane cars I have seen before in racing games like Midnight Club. This super car is going to run you approx. $415, 625.
