Gumpert : new apollo r

When conversation turns to a pair of super-athletic brothers, you might suspect we are talking about the Klitschko or Schumacher boys. Far from it. At this year's Geneva Auto Show, the sports car manufacturer GUMPERT is putting its interpretation of a pair of super-athletic brothers in the limelight with a world premiere. Powerful and in top form. Those are the attributes of the big brother, the new apollo r, a purebred race car. A fighting weight of 1,100 kg and power up to 860 HP! Small but by no means the pet of the family - that is the new apollo enraged. The special edition equipped with a 780 HP engine is the little brother of the apollo r. Only three vehicles of this model will leave their nursery in Altenburg, Thuringia. With over 1,600 HP of power between them, the two projectiles were met with great enthusiasm and consistently positive feedback. To all those who not only came to Lake Geneva for sailing: thank you for your visit!
