    Just letting all of my fellow f-chat members know that Germany's new "Gumpert Apollo" is now offered here in the United States. European Touch in Huntington Beach, Ca. is exclusively the first and only authorized dealer in Northern America. The Gumpert Apollo is an incredibly fast and unique super car; only 50 are built per year. The first demo vehicle will be at our dealership between the next 2-4 weeks. If you or anyone is interested in purchasing the new Gumpert Apollo, feel free to drop me a line if seriously interested; we can set up a test drive for you. Some information on its two types of engines are below. We'll keep you updated on its arrival!

    Model Year Engine Horsepower Acceleration (0-62mph) Top Speed

    It costs about 180,000 Euros in Germany, that's cheaper than a scuderia :eek:

    I drove one in Switzerland last year and loved the car. It was a very solid performer, but difficult around what we would consider American roads. Little deviations and potholes and speedbumps are not too friendly. I think my friend bought one after I left.

    The engine snorkle though, not my favorite.

    Hello Joe360

    That price was for their 2005-2006 introduction model (beta version), since then, Gumpert has made many changes to make the vehicle be in compliance with the European Community laws, and make it a fully legal car in Europe. If you check, you will find that it is about 260,000 Euros, In Germany for a base model car. If you add options it will get closer to 300,000 Euros. A little more than the scuderia..... (eek is a strong statement, specialy if you havent driven or seen the car in real life).
    Since in US, the emission standards and other options, the starting price is around $475k

    Thanks

    The car is awsome! Driving the car at and over 190mph makes you appreciate it even more. For US, the vehicle will have a lifting unit, like Lambo, to make it easier to go over seed bumps, driveways etc. Also, the US version has few extras that the european version does not have.
