The Gumball 3000 claims another supercar.
This year’s Gumball 3000 has just started an already we have a massive crash, not in the scale of damage done but rather the car involved. A Gumpert Apollo crashed out in Scotland, with the exact details of the accident unknown at this moment. Perhaps the road was wet or the driver just lost control of the incredibly powerful and light Apollo. The supercar packs an Audi-sourced twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 engine which makes 650 horsepower. It weighs next to nothing at just 2,600 pounds.
Here’s a video slideshow of the accident. It shows the Apollo going off the road and the immediate aftermath of the accident.
It doesn’t appear that anyone was injured in this crash and the car itself was able to be started afterwards. However, it left the scene on a flat-bed truck so all is certainly not well here. Hopefully one of the car’s sponsors picks up the repair bill!
