Back in mid-2009, the Gumpert Apollo
Sport did something amazing. It set a new lap record for a road-legal production car the Nurburging-Nordschleife track. Gumpert
was founded in 2004 by former Volkswagen
executive Roland Gumpert in order to build track-ready supercars that were also deemed to be street legal. Powered by a 700 hp, 4.2-liter, bi-turbo V8 supplied by Audi
, the Gumpert Apollo goes from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 223.9 mph.
