Talking Gumpert Apollo...

I rode in one tonight.


Yes - it was just basically a ride around the block.
Yes - it was piloted by a German guy who spoke little english.
Yes - it was orange.
Yes - those rear tires are basically as wide as a Prius.
Yes - it was the most amazing automotive experience I've ever had.

I took a vid (at least till the battery died). I'll try and get that uploaded soon.

Discuss...

One of the tuning shops down here has the Euro meet at their place each month - the shop happens to be the final assembly point for all US destined Gumperts. So to celebrate their 2 year anniversary they raffled off a ride to 5 people... I was 1 of the 5 who's number was drawn.

One thing we were all amazed at... at idle, this thing is downright quiet.
Obviously under throttle it's a completely different story!

I dont care for the looks at all. but you cant argue with the ring times.
BTW if anyone is on long island and wants to see one. the last time i was at champion motor/bentley long island/lamborghini long island. which was abut a week ago. they had one in this same orange color.

Now post up the video!!!

Awesome those cars are wicked. I saw a black one outside of Symbolic motors in San diego. I liked the way it looked actually. Crazy looks to go along with crazy speed.
