The Swiss even it kicking off next week and the automakers are gearing up for their latest presentations – even exotic manufacturer has something to show for – the ApolloN.
The company has recently come up with a teaser for their new model set to premiere on March 1 during the Geneva Motor Show, where it should show its credentials since it has been hinted to be “the fastest road car on the planet.” The motto sounds overly ambitious since we all know the Veyron Super Sport is the current record holder of that title and we’re still taking this with a grain of salt since the rumor mill has come up rather empty on the ApolloN. While we know little of the model, we can see the teaser showcasing a model with carbon fiber front splitter, a rakish windscreen, and what appears to be a front fender vent. It also sports lightweight center locking wheels that have been clad in high-performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The company is looking to reassert itself for sure and as such these overly ambitious braggin’ rights may not be real after all, but we’re betting the new ApolloN will be treated as the spiritual successor of the Gumpert Apollo. We may remind you that Ideal TeamVenture is now the current owner of the brand which has been renamed as Apollo Automobil GmbH. We also remember that Gumpert’s last stand was the Apollo S that was first shown to the world during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show wearing a 4.2-liter V8 engine rocking 740 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. This was enough for a 62 mph sprint in 2.9 seconds and 0-124 mph in 8.8 seconds.
