Gumpert Apollo

  • Nürburgring record-setting Gumpert Apollo is for sale

    It may bear a name that's easy to poke fun at, but this 2009 Gumpert Apollo is also responsible for a record-setting run around the Nürburgring, lapping the iconic track in just 7:11.57 back in August of 2009. At the time, that was the fastest a production car had ever been pushed around the 'Ring. With just 5,792 miles on its odometer today, you can now own this piece of the Green Hell's history. Production cars have gotten quite a bit faster since the Apollo was used to set its delightfully angry lap––the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS shaves just over 14 seconds off Gumpert's...

    Are Car Tattoos The Next Big Trend?

    For some people, there's nothing better than seeing an inked guy or gal walking down the street. To them, the body is a canvas, ready to accept the work of a needle-wielding artisan in exchange for a fistful of cash and a few hours of pain. But how about a tattooed car?

  • Nancy Atkinson-Turner in the Gumpert Apollo at Goodwood

    Gumpert’s Apollo supercar is known to be both stunningly quick and utterly unforgiving of mistakes, as British Touring Car Championship driver Tony Gilham found out at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

If you missed the crash, you can see it in the video below. As Atkinson-Turner explains on YouTube, the run was never...
