Gumpert Apollo: Near-mythological, utterly fantastical beast

Gumpert Apollo

Long-time readers know our love for everything Gumpert, especially the Gumpert Apollo. And we seem not to be alone.

The company’s aim was racing, and two driven wheels are all that are allowed in most categories. Apollo might not have been the god of driving, but he did count victory among his oversight portfolio, something the Apollo vehicle is quite familiar with. And the Apollo space missions did represent, at the time, the ultimate in proven high-technology, while the Griffin, as a mix of the kings of beasts and birds, represents mastery of land and air. We got to drive it, and we have never found anything like it anywhere else on the planet. Our chosen words to describe it are these: Hoe. Lee. Cow.
