Top Marques - Trying it on for Size: the Gumpert Apollo


Here's the Gumpert Apollo which this gentleman is trying on for size. This is what the catalogue has to say:

'The GUMPERT Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH is a manufacturer of exclusive super sports cars based in Germany. In 2001 there was a vision of a new super sports car: A car, which combined the highest dynamics with unmatched driving capabilities. A street-legal car, ready for the race track: the Gumpert apollo.

The apollo provides superior driving abilities beyond all imagination: 650 bhp, up to 224 mph (360 km/h) maximum speed and a breathtaking acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3 seconds. This super sports car offers unlimited fun on the road and serious competition in motor sports. A weapon on four wheels.'

Don't mean to be blasphemous, but it reminds me of the "Back to the Future" DeLorean...

What a nice car!

Rob and Mandy said...

Wonder who might actually need something like this. And where to drive it? 360 kmh???

Carraol said...

SuperWow, 360 km/h, I would love feel something like this in my hands, feeling the vibration of the engine, and the roaring must be spectacular! Love it! Thanks for sharing this incredible beauty. Have a great weekend!

If it comes in red I might buy one.

The doors are like wings! Beyond amazing car! Did you buy one for getting around Monaco for your blog photos?

Price tag? I guess if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it. Tony Canzoneri

Evelyn said...

I absolutely agree with Eleonora! Where is Michael J. Fox? Why would anyone want to go 0-62 mph in 3 seconds? Must be a guy thing!

maria said...

I can't even imagine the price of some of these cars.........

Sharon said...

I notice it didn't list a price. I bet the price is as astonishing as the speed.

If someone can afford to buy this the could also wipe out the Grecian national debt -:)

Jilly said...

The price is 300,000 euros. Apparently when Top Gear tested this car it was the faster super car they'd ever had on the program!

The front end looks a bit like a Ferrari, while the back is pure Lamborghini. As others have said, the middle belongs on a DeLorian.

See there's a Fiat 500 in the background. I have one in black. Did you take ant photos of it?

Fabrizio said...

Totally agree with Eleonora. BTW Jilly, don't forget that my Bugatti Veyron 16.4 go about 400Km/h fast and needs 2.5 sec from 0 to 100 Km/h :-P

Jilly said...

Gail's Man, yes I did take a shot of it and will put it on soon.

Fabrizio, ah yes, I think Top Gear must have tested that AFTER the apollo - and before you bought it! Or was that yours I photographed in Casino Square one time? The Veyron wasn't at Top Marques, by the way.
