Click above for a high-res gallery of the Gumpert Apollos

In case you hadn't noticed, the Gumpert Apollo isn't the prettiest car. Its garish and over-emphasized styling make it look cartoonish, but what it lacks in the visual department is made up with one of the most capable chassis and motor combinations ever produced. In fact, a pair of Apollos were tucked away in one of the connecting halls at the LA Auto Show, and as far as we know they are the only two examples in the country. We've seen the black one tackling speed bumps and taking on the Gumball 3000, and Streetfire featured the orange one a few months back. We're always up for new photos of interesting cars, so behold the gallery of high-res photos below.

      I like it too. Isn't it the fastest car around Top Gear's track too?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think it's great!

      It's like a Lotus Exige + mega doses of steroids!

      I think their plan was to make it so fast you could never get a good look at it. That way they could make it as ugly as they wanted.

      This may not be pretty, but its looks are like that because it needs to be FAST and that is surely is. No one ever said an F1 car was beautiful...

      Looks like a KTM X-Bow raped a Kia Spectra.

      I think it's a great looking supercar. Very intense. Just because Top Gear said it was ugly doesn't make it so.

        These were really out of the way, tucked under a walkway behind the exotics room.
        I read somewhere (European Car, maybe?) that there's a shop in AZ importing them, so there may be a few around. It does look completely over the top, sort of kit car-ish, but for what it can allegedly do, it seems par for the course.

      So where is this display? Is it in the connecting hall where the other exotics are? I'm going to the show on Saturday.

      my roommate saw a blue one on the freeway here in Phoenix last month, so i'd say they definitely aren't the only two in the states.

      Hey.. they had an orange one displayed at the Formula Drift World Championship last weekend. I wonder if it's the same one
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow, am I supposed to hate that? Cause I kinda like it...

      "In case you hadn't noticed" - no, I hadn't. To me, this car looks friggin' amazing.
