Geneva 2010 : apollo sport 2010

GUMPERT Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH is celebrating 4 world premieres at the 80th International Motor Show in Geneva.

The GUMPERT power package was  on show for the first time at the 80th Geneva Motor Show: two impressive versions of the further developed apollo sport, in flattering black and white.

The Power unit has been Optimised using new recirculation valves and improved cooling of the forced induction system improved the performance of the German Altenburg-built racing car to 750 hp/551 kW (previously 700 hp/515 kW).

This increase in performance of more than seven percent can be felt above all on curved and fast stretches of road. The power per litre therefore increases to more than 180 hp per litre of cylinder capacity which should shatter its Previous Nurburgring Record set in 2009.

The LED daytime running lights ensure clear conditions in temporary traffic.

In the course of reducing the vehicle’s drag coefficient, the front and tail now have a significantly more striking and forceful design, making the apollo seem more aggressive.

A completely re-designed flap-controlled exhaust system with two times two tail pipes produces an unmistakeable earthy sound.

In addition flaps in the tail area ensure optimised down force, something that has always been a priority of the apollo. The integration of a brand-new reinforced CIMA gearbox (apollo S1000) into the apollo sport now gives it improved reliability in long-distance races.

Further innovations in 2010: a considerably improved CD/DVD player sound system and a central flashlight for motor racing on the redesigned tail.

TopGear reported this car as Ugly in the flesh its an awe inspiring recreational weapon.
