“It has always been my dream to have a car with so much down-force, such aero-dynamic efficiency that you could drive on the roof of a tunnel at high speed. This car can do it.”- Roland Gumpert.
Impressive goals for an unforgettable car; the Gumpert Apollo is a street legal racecar designed to create excessive down-force with a stiff sport suspension to give a ludicrous driving experience.
Equipped with an intercooled twin-turbo 4.2-liter V-8 that’s originally designed by Audi, matched with a six-speed sequential gearbox,
you’ll feel as though every road is your track and every track is your home. The body is designed in regards to aeroscience and sport characteristics to shape an impressionable profile. The functional scoops and vents give way to the depth of this unique but unusual supercar, and participate in its tunnel crawling aerodynamics. To keep you safe, the Apollo has a frame made of carbon fiber and the safety standards of a racecar. The Apollo is a benchmark of street legal racecars and distinguishes its own style with lightweight high-performance and customization.
