With zombies all the rage and Halloween right around the corner, it should be fitting that one of the most ghoulish-looking supercars on the planet has risen from its grave, mere months after it was declared dead. Gumpert, the maker of the absurd Apollo hypercar, could very well be rescued by a new investor. It was only August when we reported on Gumpert's insolvency, but apparently an investor is getting in the mix and the German company could very well live.

Little if anything is known about the deal; the actual identity of the investor remains a mystery and it appears that the agreement is tentative and has not been written in ink. De Telegraaf has apparently learned of the investor from an undisclosed Gumpert employee. Let us hope that the source is correct. A Gumpert spokeswoman told the Dutch newspaper, "Currently we cannot say anything about the future prospects of Gumpert."

      I swear, the name killed this car more than anything else. This is actually a very cool vehicle. And I finally saw an Artega on the street the other day. What a shame that they couldn't get the handling on that dialed. It is an absolutely gorgeous design and just the kind of vehicle I would actually want to own.

        Nothing wrong with the name, the Apollo is just too hardcore for the average rich guy. As for the Artega, it was just too damn expensive.

      Why would anyone invest in this company let alone buy this car?

      I hate to say this, but... why not just let 'em die? In my childhood, I never ever thought I'd ever speak (or type) such words... but I truly feel like the world has too many super / hypercars. So many that I feel I've almost become desensitized to how awesome these machines have become. Not to mention the fact that it seems like a new one pops up from some small company every other month. Don't believe me? Then just click that "supercar" tag in this post and see how many are covered right here on Autoblog. I feel like there are actually MORE supercars and hypercars on the market than there are entry level, economy sedans.
