We haven't heard much of the Gumpert Apollo since news of the Audi-based supercar surfaced early this year. The German Car Blog is reporting via a translated article from a German website that the Apollo has finally begun its limited production. Twelve cars have reportedly already been ordered while the company plans to produce 50 to 60 cars in total next year. The Apollo sources its twin-turbo six-cylinder from Audi, which signed a supply contract for the powertrains earlier this year. Developing around 650 hp, the Apollo can hit 60 mph in 3 seconds flat and reach a claimed speed of 232 mph. Those are pretty big numbers, as is the car's price tag that starts around $240,000.
