Gumpert: Brand overview

Founded:2004 – 2016
Founder:Roland Gumpert
In 2004, Altenburg, Germany, witnessed the birth of a new automotive powerhouse, Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH, led by Roland Gumpert, who previously served as a director at Audi Sport. Specializing in high-performance sports cars, Gumpert quickly made a mark in the industry.

A year into its inception, in 2005, Gumpert unveiled the Gumpert Apollo, a machine that blended racetrack aggression with road-friendly attributes. Nestled within its core was a twin-turbo Audi V8 engine that could generate a staggering 600 hp. As time progressed, this base model underwent various refinements, leading to the birth of specialized versions like the Apollo Sport and Apollo Enraged. The cars were acclaimed for their speeds and showcased meticulous carbon fiber engineering.

However, 2012 marked a turbulent phase for the company as it grappled with financial strains, culminating in an insolvency declaration. But the story didn’t end there. The following year, Wengcheng, a Chinese automotive conglomerate, saw potential and took the reins. Under this new leadership, the legacy of the Apollo lived on. By 2016, the world was introduced to the Apollo Arrow, a rendition of the original supercar with enhancements that made it even more formidable.

Yet, by the close 2016, the Gumpert brand drew its curtains. The torch was passed on to Apollo Automobil GmbH, which absorbed Gumpert’s assets and knowledge base to continue the journey in high-octane vehicles. Gumpert etched an indelible mark on automotive history despite its relatively brief lifespan. It showcased that German entrepreneurial ventures could indeed rival the prowess of established Italian and British supercar giants. The Gumpert Apollo, even today, is reminisced as a beacon of top-tier sports car engineering during the brand’s 12-year odyssey.
