Gumpert Apollo Speed sets Nurburgring record

Gumpert Apollo Speed Nurburgring

According to German magazine Sport-Auto, the Gumpert Apollo Speed has set a new record for a road-legal production car at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, bringing in a lap time of 7:11.57.

The time was recorded on August 13th while the Gumpert Apollo Speed was piloted by 26 year-old driver Florian Gruber. Power for the Apollo Speed comes from an Audi 4.2L bi-turbo V8 pumping out 700-hp (capable of 800-hp). It allows the supercar to go from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds with a top speed of 223 mph.

Apparently the group has overlooked the achievement of the Radical SR8, which was clocked in at 6:55.

Either way, road tests for the Apollo Speed are scheduled to begin in mid-September. Stay tuned for more from Gumpert.
