Speed and performance at all costs

German performance-vehicle manufacturer Gumpert underwent a corporate restructure in 2015, recently remerging as Apollo Automobil GmbH, a name pulled from Gumpert’s previous line of exotics. Coinciding with the rebranding is the release of two new models, both of which dropped cover at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. One is called the Arrow, while the other, shown here, is the N. Anyone familiar with Gumpert should instantly recognize the N’s… purposeful lines, which evolved from the Apollo S and Apollo Enraged that preceded it. Underneath, you’ll find the same race-ready go-fast bits as its forerunners, including a twin-turbo V-8, competition-spec suspension, and lightweight chassis.

Of course, you don’t wanna stray too far from the formula when making a follow-up to a record-setter. You see, back in 2009, the Apollo S went around the Nurburgring in 7 minutes, 11.57 seconds, earning the title of fastest street-legal production car from the German magazine Sport Auto.

Which brings us to the N. The singular letter is a reference to the notorious German track that is the vehicle’s genesis, which also happens to be the place where the rest of Apollo’s no-nonsense portfolio will be tested and developed.

Break it down, and this thing is basically a race car for the road with every intention of conquering the laws of physics with extreme prejudice. But in a world filled to the brim with insane hypercar competition, does the Apollo N have what it takes to flourish?

2016 Geneva International Motor Show – Worst In Show

Rehashed ideas, half-baked special editions, and a mechanic with an emissions fix

If you’ve been watching TopSpeed for the last week, I don’t need to tell you – the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show was simply amazing. It’s like the industry leveled up all at once, with a vast collection of drool-worthy cars on display and a flood of mind-boggling performance stats. But, unfortunately, every field of flowers inevitably comes with a few turds sprinkled in here and there. This article is about those turds.

Look, we get it – auto shows can be ruthless, especially when you’re talking about something as big as Geneva. This is where the big guns are drawn, and looking good can be a challenge when competing for attention against 1,000-horsepower rocket ships made from composite nuclear unobtainium.

Nevertheless, for each winner, there has to be a loser.
