Improved cooling, new recirculation valves and optimised engine control have boosted power seven percent from 515kW to 551kW.
Rocker switches on the steering wheel mean that the six-speed TT40e transmission now shifts gear in no more than 40 milliseconds.
Style-wise, Gumpert’s latest effort is no less polarising than previous models, but its racing appeal is advanced by LED daytime running lights and a tweaked front and rear, with added flaps in the tail to ensure optimal downforce.
The 2010 Apollo S also scores an upgraded CD/DVD system and a central rear flashlight for motor racing, as well as a redesigned flap-controlled exhaust system which, according to Gumpert, produces an “unmistakeable earthy sound”.
The right-hand drive option is the most exciting announcement for Australia and, although there is no news about a local launch, hopefully it increases our chances of one day seeing an Apollo down under.
