If you think about it, it's pretty clear that they don't make supercars for the hardcore fanatics. What the companies responsible for creating our dreamcars have in mind today are Chinese millionaires, Russian playboys, and some emission, noise and pedestrian safety regulations. Maybe some retired dentists as well.
On Saturday night I was due to be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Ball. Oh how excited I was! However, by 7:00 pm I was lying flat on a spinal board with women plucking straw and glass from my noon.
Whoops. Driving a Gumpert Apollo is no picnic, as BTCC driver (and former cage fighter) Tony Gilham found out this past Saturday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, when he slid one into the hay during a hillclimb attempt. Gilham's ok, as is his passenger, who spent some time at a local hospital.
Gumpert has announced they will premiere two new versions of their always insane Apollo at this week's Geneva Motor Show—an 860 horsepower Apollo R and the Apollo Enraged. We believe this is a picture of the latter version being unloaded at the Palexpo in Geneva.
Formula 1 driver Adrian Sutil was apparently behind the wheel of this Gumpert Apollo when it took the route less traveled around part of the Nürburgring. Yep, carbon fiber crash protection system works. Hat tip to Kozak & Kai!
Remember Gumpert's Apollo (pictured)? Milan-based Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is prepping a more spacious touring version for the Geneva show. Like the Apollo, the Tornante will be rich in carbon fiber and horsepower. Overnight bag and "aspiring model" optional.
A tractor-trailer delivering three supercars to a dealership in Long Island crashed early this morning on a New York state parkway. The truck's contents? Two Porsche 911s and one rare Gumpert Apollo I was supposed to drive yesterday.
The truly mean Gumpert Apollo Sport has powered its way to a Nürburgring lap time of 7:11.57, simultaneously setting the fastest lap for a production road-legal car and embarrassing the competition.
If expensive supercars and gold paint jobs aren't unique enough for you, Eng-i-Creation can whip up a one-off silver and gold embellished custom folding key-fob for only about $7,000.
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Today we're going to prove that DOTS isn't just about old cars, nor is it just about daily drivers or beaters with potatoes for gas caps. If it's parked in public within the city…
If you haven't seen this week's blisteringly fast episode of Top Gear already and you plan on doing so without having plot details spoiled, you should probably ignore this post in its entirety. The rest of you should hit the jump.
Well, we knew it'd be out at the Race At Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race, but it looks like it was getting some test time out at the ring a week early. Oh, and did we mention the hybrid Apollo's purportedly rated at 800 HP? Yes, we know it's not the same color as the one we saw in Wired but we're getting…
The Gumpart Apollo is one mean machine with its twin-turbo 4.2-liter Audi V8. But for next month's 24-hour endurance race at the Nürburgring, Gumpert will be swapping out that powertrain for something a bit more green. Since fuel economy is a key factor in a long race, the Apollo racer will be fitted with hybrid…
The new, Audi-powered Gumpert Apollo — a joint venture between Audi tuning house MTM and former Audi motorsports chief, Roland Gumpert — has entered serial production, The German Car Blog reports. The $200,000+ supercar, powered by a 650hp, twin-turbo variant of Audi's 4.2-liter V8, is touted by its builders as…
