Gumpert unveiled two world premieres at the Geneva Motorshow first the Apollo R and the road legal Apollo Enraged special edition.
Roland Gumpert the former director of Audi Sport informed us it has been 3 years since they got the 7:11 time on the infamous norschleife and is looking forward to beating it with both cars the Road Legal Apollo Enraged and the trackday special the Apollo R.
The Gumpert Apollo R uses the Audi sourced V8 used in both the V8 R8 and the RS4 with added twin-turbo engine producing 860 HP, the power increase is a tribute to the additional boost pressure and lower air gas intake temperatures along with modifications from the manifold and air intake system which will survive hotter ambient temperatures.
The engine considering its anorexic 1100kg is finished off with a single piece of cast aluminium detailing the Gumpert Logo.
The special edition GUMPERT apollo Enraged. Limited to three vehicles worldwide will have 780 hp which is the most powerful street legal Apollo to leave the GUMPERT factory.
We expect Gumpert to be attempting another record of the Nordschleife later this year.
The 2013 Range Rover will be the fourth generation superceding the original that was produced from 1970 to 1996, the second series platform lasted from 1994 to 2001, and the current “Stormer Concept” that has been in production post 2002.
These Spyshots even though heavily camouflaged hints at its longer wheelbase and completely revised shell.
By using the lightweight material, engineers could lose up to 40 percent from the weight of the current Range Rover’s unpainted body shell, equating to a saving of roughly 660 to 880 pounds. Advanced composites are also expected to be used for certain elements, such as the body panels and rear tailgate.
