Megafactories Goes Inside Gumpert

National Geographic takes an in-depth look at how Gumpert builds the Apollo and what lays in store for the German supercar-maker.

National Geographic's "Megafactories" series (aka "Ultimate Factories") has profiled some of the world's leading carmakers, from Bugatti and Ferrari to Porsche and Pagani. In its latest supercar manufacturing documentary series, it visits German supercar maker Gumpert, creator of the monstrous Apollo. As ever, NatGeo covers lots of interesting ground, revealing that the company has a sedan in the works as well as a few variants of its flagship million-dollar supercar, having successfully stepped back from the brink of bankruptcy.

With a twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8 capable of between 650 and 800 horsepower (depending on spec), the Apollo manages 0-62 mph from 3.1 seconds and tops out in excess of 224 mph. Future Gumpert cars will look to improve upon those impressive numbers, as well as its divisive no-nonsense styling.
