2013 Gumpert Apollo S makes an appearance in Geneva

Revived specialty marque Gumpert is now back in action thanks to an unknown investor who decided the company is worth saving. For this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Gumpert brought a duo consisting of a matte red and dark grey Apollo S. They promise a lineup expansion later on this year, with a brand new model to be showcased at an important auto show, possibly in Frankfurt this September. Until then, let’s have a look at this Apollo S which makes use of a 4163cc V8 engine producing 750 HP at 6,000 rpm and 900 Nm at 4,000 rpm. Thanks to this hardware setup, the car hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds, while 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) takes a mere 8.8s.

The customers have the possibility of opting for one of the following gearbox choices: a sequential featuring a manual shift lever, an automatic electronic gear system with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, as well as a fully-synchronized 6-speed. The car can ride on either 19-inch or 20-inch wheels with central locking and comes with 378mm ventilated disc brakes featuring 6-piston calipers.

Gumpert has fitted the Apollo S with a lightweight chromium-molybdenum steel tube frame as well as a carbon/Kevlar monocoque that has a carbon fiber/aluminum underbody and a carbon body shell. The car also boasts LED daytime running lights, removable steering wheel, front anti-roll bar, front/rear-axle double wishbone suspension and a carbon fiber rear wing.
