Gumpert Apollo Sports Car Beats Top Gear Track Record
The Apollo is a new generation sports car - a street-legal car, ready for the race track.
The manufacturers claim the design is optimized to produce enough "downforce" so that the car could drive upside-down in a tunnel, if driven at sufficiently high speeds (over 190mph).
The Apollo is a street-legal race car made in Germany. It is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive two-seater constructed on a tubular chromoly frame, with fiberglass or optional carbon fiber body panels.
Top speed is 360 km/h (220 mph) with 0-100 km/h (62 mph) reached in 2.7 seconds and 0-200 km/h (120 mph) in 7.9 seconds.
