Gumpert Apollo
It might have come from a brand name you’d sooner expect to be supplying either construction equipment or wellington boots, but the Gumpert Apollo has a neat way of sweeping aside your expectations. We drove it in 2005, and were certainly struck by the sheer purpose, grip and pace of the car – and that was at the firm’s initial 641bhp state of tune (a 789bhp ‘race’ version was also available). At the time of our test, the car’s six-speed sequential gearbox was its obvious weak spot, being stubborn and tricky to operate, but its accelerative speed was beyond question – Gumpert claims 0-62mph in 3.1sec and a maximum speed of 224mph, and both are believable.
