Gumpert Planning New Models


Flush with fresh investment, Gumpert is planning a number of new models to join the Apollo.

When Gumpert declared insolvency last summer, it appeared the German supercar-maker washeading the way of Artega, Melkus and other small European sportscar andracecar manufacturers that recently met their maker. However, the producerof the Apollo supercar quickly found a new buyer and it seems that things areon the up. At the Geneva Motor Show last week Gumpert announced that new models are inthe offing, with one expected to make its debut this year.

While no new models were brought to the Swiss show - just a pair of Apollo S models - Managing Director Roland Gumpert did come bearing news about the company’s future: "Our distribution and dealer networks are being expanded worldwide and sister models will soon be added to the Apollo. What's more, we'll already be presenting the first of these models this year at a major trade fair." Recent reports suggest the first new model will be the Tornante. The car was first unveiled with coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It failed to reach the final stages of development at the time, but has a strong chance to make it now.
