GUMPERT Apollo Speed for Geneva Motorshow

gumpert apollo speed 2 at GUMPERT Apollo Speed for Geneva Motorshow

Gumpert is teasing us with a new version of the ugly but lovely Apollo which will debut at Geneva Motorshow and is called Speed! maybe they presume previous models were slow. In fact they are in comparison with the Speed as it’s set to achieve top speed of over 360 kmh. Gumpert Apollo Speed will be available with three power levels from the Bi-turbo V8 engine, 650 – 700 and 800 bhp. The way Apollo Speed gets to the top speed is more amazing than the top itself! as it accelerates from 0 to 100 in 3 seconds and 200 in 8.9 seconds. The Speed is lower to the ground than its brothers and is more aerodynamic so maybe this time guys of Gumpert can prove that their car, because of the enormous amount of downforce, can go upside down!
