What Do You Think About the Gumpert Apollo S Iron Car Edition's Chrome Wrap?

At this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show, troubled German sports car builder Gumpert told the world that it’s still alive and kicking after flirting with Miss Bankruptcy one time too often. They also showed a new creation, the Explosion Coupe, and brought along a specially made Apollo S nicknamed Iron Car after the fictional character Iron Man because of, you know, its colors.

It would have made more sense if they used a gold tone instead of silver, but anyway, the Apollo S on display was prepared by 2M DESIGNS in Augsburg, Germany, which tells us that the red- and silver-chrome wraps took 80 hours of “pasting” and cost €6,800 (about US$9,400) with tax/VAT included.

The rims were coated in black “liquid rubber”, which we assume means plastic paint or something similar, at a cost of €250 (around US$350), while other additions include the carbon film trims on the mirrors, the new shatterproof Lexani glass cover for the engine and the tinted lights, for which no price was announced.

This particular version of the Apollo has a 4.2-liter twin-turbo’d V8 engine sourced from Audi that delivers 780PS (769hp) offering the car a top speed of 360km/h (224mph).
