The German based automaker Gumpert has decided to get into the spotlights once again by teasing a new model which will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
Even if the details on the new car which will wear the Gumpert logo on it are limited, the car manufacturer says that the vehicle will have an “unmistakable” sound which can only mean one thing to us: the rebirth of the Apollo, or a high-performance version of the current model. But rather than speculate on what model is Gumpert just about to release, we better wait for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, when it will be officially unveiled.
“Unusually mild, late autumn in central Germany is showing its best side. Which is why the Gumpert engineers just couldn’t resist – without further ado, they chose Altenburg airport as the venue for the first drive with a very special bolide. Even though few had the opportunity to see what was zooming down the runway, the sound was unmistakable. And just as quickly as it was all set up, the Gumpert team including the prototype were gone again. The result of this and surely many other test drives will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show at the beginning of 2012”, as the automaker says in its official press release.
As a reminder, the Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH is a German, Altenburg based, automaker, with its first model produced being the Apollo, which was followed by the Apollo Sport in 2007. The base price for the Gumpert Apollo Sport was being set at 301.600 EUR in 2009, when 30 cars were planned, all of them powered with the 4.2 liter V8 bi-turbo engine with its 650 HP.
