Toyota MR2 turned into a Gumpert Apollo!

While everyone is waiting for the next generation Toyota MR2 , a guy decided to turn his into a Gumpert Apollo. We’ve seen lots of replicas, but this one is one of the strangest ones!

This is a one-of-a-kind (thank God!) concept, featuring a Toyota MR2 frame along with the modern conveniences of airbags, power windows, power locks, air conditioning, exhaust, and suspension.

Of course, you guessed it, under the hood there is nothing compared to the Audi-sourced 4.2-liter, twin-turbo V8 with 650HP from the Apollo! Instead the owner used a four-cylinder turbo engine, dynoded at 255 whp at 15 psi and 303 whp at around 19 psi. The car meets all regulations and is extremely economical in term of gasoline.

The interior combines black suede leather with red piping and Racing Sparco seats with Racing Harnesses - also in a combination of black and red.

The car is for sale on eBay with a current bid of $12,100.

Engine, looks the same but double checked its components

I can’t believe no one has complained about the microfiber / suede interior or the horrible engine shot. The engine looks every bit like your typical shadetree zillion-mile MR2 turbo. It does not look at all like a serious effort.

Awesome! Great job on that car, and am totally impress on that concept.

It looks weird to me, but does it come with a gullwing also just like the original Apollo?

maybe he thought if he hide the fact it was a junky toyota he could sell it then, lol...

Perfect but front vent looks to awful and has a stiff angle.
