The Gumpert Apollo Sport is said to be named after one of the gods in Greek mythology, whose namesake takes the human form of an athletic olympian figure, not unlike this new German supercar. In fact, its deity-like appearance is hard to ignore through its almost alien combination of curves and edges.
The production version of the Gumpert Apollo Sport would be unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show, where it epitomized the company’s philosophy and purpose – to create the fastest road-legal car in the world. Capable of 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds and a top speed of 224 mph, the Apollo Sport was certainly checking off all the right boxes in that regard.
19Bozzy92 YouTube channel managed to film a Gumpert Apollo S on Bernina Pass in Switzerland. Watch and enjoy the loud sound coming from its 4.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing up to 650 horsepower as it does some demo runs.
