Gumpert Apollo

Gumpert Apollo

This could easily have been called the Gumpert Phlair because its go-fast aesthetics are just that redundant, and in this the Apollo is the exact opposite of the 8C: It is form following function, and at times, following very very far behind indeed. Intended to be a street-legal but track-ready sports car, every inch of the Apollo’s bulbous surface is made for generating downforce or sheeting the air over and under the car as efficiently as possible, enabling the car to allegedly drive upside down when traveling over 190 mph. I say “allegedly” because, surprisingly, no one has been willing to lay their life on the line just to so Gumpert can list another selling feature in their Apollo brochure.
