The brainchild of former Audi engineer Roland Gumpert and based in Altenburg in the far east of Germany, the Apollo draws heavily on his racing experience and his enduring links with the Ingolstadt manufacturer. Using a twin-turbocharged version of Audi’s 4.2-litre 90-degree V8 – complete with lightweight internals – and mated to a six-speed sequential transmission, the Apollo was available in three versions: the entry-level Apollo (641bhp), the Apollo Sport (690bhp) and Apollo R (for race) at an incredible 789bhp. 

Production of the Apollo started in October 2005 and, not long later, the first fully functioning road car made its way to Europe, became fully road-legal and was sold in various Gumpert dealerships. Car reviewers praised the car's speed and cornering. During a review in Autocar magazine, chief test driver Matt Prior stated that "the Apollo recalibrates the meaning of pure speed and driving feel". On Series 11 of Top Gear, the Apollo lapped the Top Gear test track in a time of 1:17.1, setting a record that lasted for two years until surpassed by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

The Apollo S is equipped with an extended aerodynamic package and, in contrast to the three-part spoiler of the entry-level car, possesses a racing wing which produces even more downforce and pushes the Sport's maximum speed up to 360kph.

On offer here is an unused, delivery mileage Apollo S that was built in 2013 finished in matte black with red-stitched grey Alcantara and black carbon fibre. Believed to be one of only 13, this is a rare car and possibly one of the last from the production line before bankruptcy was filed in August 2013.
