The 2009 Gumpert Apollo Sport Nurburgring Lap Record remains to be the reigning vehicle 13 seconds faster than the Maserati –the one car that has its bragging rights and still has not been beaten by any other legal monster in its category.
A 4.2 liter V8 engine could rule over the much higher velocity types and yet be the winner. It is the driver orchestrating the moves but of course, the outstanding 700 hp @ 6500 rpm does all the torque and most of all, the talk.
0 to 100 mph in just a period of 3 seconds gives a new meaning to word power. The need to pack up is indeed the sole purpose of the 2009 Gumpert Apollo Sport Nurburgring Lap Record making it add a new laurel leaf to its cap.
Once the fury starts, there is no stopping this machine – built to last, built to win.
