Gumpert Apollo gets ruined in Germany

A Gumpert Apollo has recently met its end in Germany after the man behind the wheel lost control of the supercar and slammed it into the guardrail.

Usually when talking about supercars that have been crashed we’re used to seeing names like Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren or Pagani, but every once in a while, an even more exotic ride appears, like this Gumpert Apollo, which has met its end in Knetzgau, Germany. According to Wrecked Exotics, the supercar in question was driven by a 49-year old man, who lost control of the wheel while overtaking another vehicle at high speed. The Apollo has been crashed into the guardrail, but happily no one was injured.

The Gumpert Apollo has been in production between 2005 and 2012 and it was assembled in Germany. The supercar stands at 4,460 mm long, 1,998 mm wide and 1,114 mm tall, weighing 1,100 kg. The model is taking its power from a 4,163 cc bi-turbo intercooled version of the Audi V8 engine, which is available in three outputs, with 641 HP (478 kW), 690 HP (515 kW) and 789 HP (588 kW). The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.1 seconds and top speed stands at 360 km/h (224 mph).
