The headlight like a McLaren mp4 12c

The Apollo was awesome for the fact that it was function over form in terms of Gumpert designing the car to be pure performance. If you didn't like something, you couldn't change it. That's awesome
Thibault Leroy Dec 20, 2012
@Austin they said it on topgear....
Stefan G. Whittaker Dec 20, 2012
It's spectacular looking; A welcome change to Gumpert's typically Troll-Like Function-Over-Form design. However, is it just me, or did someone graft McLaren's MP4-12C's head-lamps into the Tornante?
Wyatt Gordon Dec 19, 2012
Arent they bankrupt? And why does everyone think the Apollo is a good looking car? It was so ugly. The performance was great though, Ill give it that
Austin Bride Dec 19, 2012
Where did this opinion of the gunpert looking bad even come from? Everyone I've heard loves it.
Matt Sutton Dec 19, 2012
Seeing an apollo in person will leave you speechless. I was lucky enough to sit in one and it was incredible.
Thibault Leroy Dec 19, 2012
Yeah i loved the look of the apollo and i never understood the people who said didnt look good
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Dec 19, 2012
The apollo was badass.
Paul Dickey Dec 19, 2012
I thought the Apollo looked great.
Walker Carroll Dec 19, 2012
I guess they're giving it another go. I don't care what other people say, but I loved the Apollo.
Janya Pulusu Dec 19, 2012
I thought gumpert was bankrupt
Josh May Jan 03, 2013
It kinda looks like the Volkswagen Nardo concept on Gran Turismo 5
William Downs Dec 20, 2012
How am I an ass hole when your the one telling me to shut up for no reason... pretty sure that makes u the ass hole
John M Weishahn Dec 20, 2012
Stay ugly, Gumpert!
Kyle Malcomson Dec 20, 2012
The front looks like a poor mans mclaren the back is a mess
Ty Schuring Dec 19, 2012
Wyatt Gordon Dec 19, 2012
I agree with Dan, shut up William.
Nodnarb Ydil Dec 19, 2012
This looks terrible. What happened gumpert
William Downs Dec 19, 2012
The fronts not bad, but I feel the entire back half of the car from the doors back needs to be redesigned, its just to blah for gumpert... especially when u look at the Apollo then this
Jt Collier Dec 19, 2012
Looks like a beetle, not the volkswagen, but an actual beetle
Chris Lang Dec 19, 2012
I prefer the Apollo over this. I can't put my finger on it, but this looks like something from the 90's. oh wait, I know. A concept that Chrysler was playing with but never came into production. The back end on this withe square taillights looks like a Bentley GT. Too bad there isn't originality amongst designers.
Colby Church Dec 19, 2012
Nice looking car, worst rear view visibility in the world. Better have one hell of a backup camera...
William Downs Dec 19, 2012
Dan how about u shut up and go away if u got nothing to contribute besides shut up, worry about u and mind your own buisness
Darren Nardo Dec 19, 2012
Not much better than the Apollo, good thing they are fast .
Megan Moody Dec 19, 2012
Nice, but Ferrari design nice? Nope. Ferrari makes it look so easy don't they?
Jordan Smith Dec 19, 2012
Weren't these on Carbuzz a long time ago?
Andrew Semak Dec 19, 2012
It looks like it has the profile of a Maserati MC-12
Shane Carroll Dec 19, 2012
The old one wasn't bad, but I find this pretty hideous
William Downs Dec 19, 2012
Daniel get your eyes checked cause those headlights look exactly like the McLaren mp4 headlights..
Justin Mancuso Dec 19, 2012
Looks like the Audi rosemeyor concept
Thibault Leroy Dec 19, 2012
Renault clio * and i dont really like the looks of this, looks dated
Oleg Odessit Dec 19, 2012
Ohhh look its bumper looks like Renault Cleo.
Daniel Carroll Dec 19, 2012
@ben wtf are you talking about. If your view is set to that lack of detail. Then you could also say the front bumper air intakes look like a Renault Cleo.
Walker Carroll Dec 19, 2012
You know what I see? I see a little bit of gumpert tornante in it.
Ben Randle Dec 19, 2012
Maybe not exactly though...
Ben Randle Dec 19, 2012
From this angle, the headlights look EXACTLY like the mclaren 12c...
Description: Now, however, our friends over at World Car Fans have gotten their hands on a series of patent renderings that seem to indicate that Gumpert, now back on its feet, is moving forward with the project. ...

Thats so 90's. And Im afraid to say I dont mean that in a good way
Kyle Kloewer Dec 19, 2012
Haha I agree. Needs more panache and lunacy
Jordan Smith Dec 19, 2012
I agree. Looks boring compared to the Apollo.
Thibault Leroy Dec 19, 2012
This car is too simple, not gumpert like, i dont like it
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Dec 19, 2012
The back looks amazing
James E Caldwell Dec 19, 2012
Tail lights look so much better! I'm guessing and hoping they'll just put in a back up camera, I'm guessing not much visibility out those slats.
Scott Westphall Dec 21, 2012
I loved the look of the Apollo. I think this is hideous. WAY too much junk in the trunk. Not liking the huge a$$ on this thing.
Wyatt Gordon Dec 19, 2012
The front's too long, I hate the way the windscreen connects to the front, and from the B-pillar back looks unfinished.
Thibault Leroy Dec 19, 2012
Read the article, theyre back
Chris Penza Dec 19, 2012
It's too bad they went bankrupt. They could have become a legend like pagani
Daniel Alexander Soutar Dec 19, 2012
Nice. I like it, pretty classy shape and a thumbs up from my side of the table.
Jordan Neal Dec 21, 2012
Zac D'Anna Dec 19, 2012
Front looks like the new jaguar f type
Tobias Mersinger Dec 19, 2012
No aggressive looks....
John Hyland Dec 19, 2012
Looks too tall and bulky from this angle
Janak Solanki Dec 19, 2012
Ugly face
Ben Randle Dec 19, 2012
Not from this angle!!!
Josh X Williams Dec 19, 2012
I dig the split rear window, but they got to update the design a little. It needs some flow.
Wyatt Gordon Dec 19, 2012
The lights remind me if the ones from the Lamborghini Countach Anniversary. Only cheaper. And worse.
Felix Rhett Dec 19, 2012
@shane agreed. Looks like they went with the designer of the Chrysler crossfire
Shane Carroll Dec 19, 2012
They know how to make a fast car, no denying that. If only they'd hire a designer. From, Italy or somewhere
Victor Takhanov Dec 19, 2012
what are they...from the malibu or something?
Guo-Sheng Huang Dec 19, 2012
Don't really like the tail lights.
