Gumpert Apollo Enraged Concept Car is fitted with a 780 horsepower Four.2 litre Audi-sourced V8, and it’s concerning the closest you can get to a Le Mans car and nonetheless be road legal. Weighing in at just One,175 kgs (2,590 lbs) the Apollo Enraged has a phenomenal power to weight ratio, and that’s backed up by any chassis which has proven itself time and time again to be one of the world’s best.
Gumpert have been kicking ass and taking names since 2005 while they rolled out the very first Apollo. Considering that then they’ve also produced the more mild mannered Tornante GT auto. But the brutal Apollo has always already been kinda their thing. Now, just in time for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Gumpert get developed two a lot more hardcore versions of the Apollo, one to the track and one for the road. The track vehicle, called the Gumpert Apollo R is an 860 hp monster. While the Apollo Enraged is really a limited edition street car – constrained to just three units.
“Ok, so perhaps it is a bit crazy to take the most extreme, barely still street legal vehicle and make it even more extreme. But the idea behind the enraged, just like the Apollo R itself, embodies our philosophy and our understanding of PURE GERMAN SPEED with absolute consistency.”
