Gumpert Apollo

For a car with a strange name the Gumpert is very cool. I decided to use this shot because the back end is one of the best I have seen. Awesome! The car was dreamed up by Roland Gumbert, the ex head of Audi Sport in the 70's, was able to put together a great team to come up with a new kind of sports car.

Roland is reported to have said, “It has always been a dream of mine to have a car that has so much downforce, such aerodynamic efficiency that you could drive on the roof of a tunnel at high speed – and this car can.

Not sure if that's been done yet but I'm sure that the Apollo with its 691HP, 4.2L V8, and top speed of 220mph, would give it a good go.

The Gumpert Apollo is a beautiful conceived and built car that so far has the fastest lap time around the Top Gear track at 1:17.1.

Read about it here and the website has some great information and video's - http://www.gumpert.de/eng/index_html.html.
