Gumpert Apollo claims new production car Nurburgring lap record

Gumpert Apollo Sport 1

A few weeks back, the famed Nurburgring production car lap record fell; but not at the hands of the Nissan GT-R. No. Claiming the production car record is this here unique vehicle — the Gumpert Apollo Sport.

While the rapid GT-R stops the clocks around the 7-minute 26-second mark, the Apollo has decimated the record (held by a Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR with a 7.22) by nearly 11 seconds with a 7-minute 11-second run! However, that’s hardly surprising given its twin-turbo 4.2-litre Audi FSI V8, responsible for thumping out a massive 700hp.
