Gumpert Renamed Apollo Automobil; Revealing New Supercar At Geneva

|

Just after it was revealed that Gumpert had been purchased by a group of Hong Kong investors, new details about the deal have emerged alongside confirmation that a brand new performance car will soon be launched.

For starters, the identity of the investors has been confirmed as Ideal TeamVenture, the same company that purchased De Tomaso just over six months ago. With Gumpert, they are wasting no time in overhauling the company and have renamed it Apollo Automobil GmbH.

In March, at the Geneva Motor Show, Apollo Automobil will unveil what it dubs a “brand new Apollo” currently dubbed the Arrow. There's a potential that this model will be based around the original Gumpert Apollo but at this stage, nothing else about it can be confirmed.

Interestingly, the automaker's new website does have a countdown clock ticking down until January 11, a date likely set for the official launch of the website. If that is the case, then there's a chance additional details and potentially teaser images of the 'Arrow' could be released soon after.

This news is separate from claims that Roland Gumpert, the founder of Gumpert, is also working on a brand new hypercar.

So it looks like we have two all-new hypercars in the works. The more the merrier we say.
