Apollo teases Gumpert-based N sports car
Recently revived by a group of Chinese investors, German boutique car maker Gumpert will travel to the Geneva Auto Show to introduce its next model.
Gumpert has been renamed Apollo Automobil by its new owners, and its first car is called simply N. Details are vague at best, but the flared fender visible in the teaser shot suggests the N is an evolution of the Gumpert Apollo, the only model the automaker has ever manufactured. The two cars seemingly share styling cues such as a steeply-raked windshield, gullwing doors, and large air vents behind the wheel arches.
Published on Faceboook, Apollo’s teaser is accompanied by a brief blurb that explains the company’s engineers are developing the fastest road car on the planet. Technical details are being kept under wraps for the time being, so whether the N will continue to use Audi-sourced mechanical components is up in the air at this point. Similarly, the teaser doesn’t specify if Apollo wants the N to be the fastest car to 60, the car with the highest top speed, or both.
All told, Apollo’s teaser asks more questions than it answers. We’ll bring you live images and more details about the Apollo N live from the Geneva Auto Show starting on March 1st.
