I don't get how this is street legal when the even slower, heavier and weaker Ferrari FXX isn't. L-MAO

Cars like this with a protected aerodynamic/racing spoiler will have to limit its 1/4 mile trap speed to 200 km/h and reach up to speeds like 300 km/h or less. Without a wing like this the car can probably reach 220-240 km/h in the quarter mile and reach up to speeds like 330-400 km/h (if the gears were to be long enough).

*"this car is not road legal"

Yes, it is not.
The R stands for race and the Gumpert Apollo Race is a ace car with over 800 PS.
Its topspeed is "only" 275 km/h (with shorter gears).*"

It is road legal.
My fault, sorry.

the apollo s was the car tested because that is the highest performing model that is still street legal. the apollo r is track only. currently it holds the world record for the quickest time around the nurbugring

yes the Apollo R is street legal ..in the picture gallery of Gumpert this red Apollo R carrys licens plate and normal prifiled street tires.

According to Gumpert homepage they can build every version into a full race car under DMSB, ACO or FIA GT regulation

Georg yes I know.... I added the lap time yesterday but then found out that the version they tested had 690bhp..... FL database doesn't have the 690bhp version listed.


User avatar

Georg  13y ago

I thought they have tested the Gumpert Apollo S not the R

http://www.evo.co.uk/carreviews/evocarreviews/210382/gumpert_apollo.html

means this laptime is at the wrong car..the Bedford time was driven with the Apollo S not R

EVO (who usually know what they are talking about) think there are 3 versions of the Apollo, the base 650bhp car, the Apollo S (Sport) with 690bhp and the Apollo R (Race) which is lighter and packs nearly 800bhp
