New Nurburgring Lap Record

The Gumpert Apollo Sport has set a new lap record for a road-legal production car at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife track as timed and reported by German magazine Sport-Auto.

The Audi-powered Apollo Sport was piloted by 26 year-old driver Florian Gruber on August 13th as the record time of exactly 7m11.57s was set. According to Sport-Auto the record was previously held by Michael Düchting clocking in 7m14.89s on a Donkervoort D8 RS06 in November 2005. However, if our memory serves correctly, wasn't it the Radical SR8 in road legal trim that clocked 6m55s?

The 700 hp of the car is provided by a 4.2 liter, bi-turbo V8 engine supplied by Audi. It propels the Gumpert Apollo from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.9 seconds and gives the car a top speed of 360 km/h.

Roland Gumpert, a former VW executive, started Gumpert back in 2004 in order to create track-ready and track-worthy supercars that were also street legal.

Road tests for the Apollo Sport are scheduled for mid-September. A release date has not yet been announced.
Stop putting stuff like painted reflectors and premium package in your signature. You're embarrassing.
