The sports car manufacturer Gumpert celebrates two world premieres in Geneva named GUMPERT apollo r, a purebred race car with the brute thrust of up to 860 hp (632 kW), and GUMPERT apollo enraged. In the process of development, numerous modifications were required to extract up to 860 hp from the 4.2 litre V8 engine. What the engineers did was to include higher supercharging pressure, ignition and control time adjustments, optimization of the intake air ducts and a special racing exhaust system. The engine and transmission cooling system was also enhanced. In addition, the spur-toothed dog ring transmission is controlled by rocker switches on the steering wheel but without a clutch pedal. A central digital dashboard supplies the driver with essential information. Furthermore, the chassis was extended with a titanium blade stabilizer on the rear axle. Additional optimization measures lead to the decrease of the weight of the car, which now is 1 100 kg. Now, the apollo r is more powerful and lighter than any other apollo. At the exhibition stand in Geneva, the apollo r will be shown in a black-red-gold foil dress. The driver and passenger doors are each graced by a griffin, a cross between an eagle and lion and therefore the lord of the air as well as the earth. The heraldic animal of GUMPERT, the griffon, also decorates the distinctive swing doors of the apollo enraged. The mythical creature visually emphasizes the link between the enraged and the apollo r.

The limited special edition of the Apollo enraged delivers 780 hp (574 kW) and a reduction of the dry weight to 1 175 kg. Next to the flag design embroidery on the seat and headrest, the digital LCD instrument panel is the most noticeable special feature on the interior. This version embodies the philosophy an understanding of "pure German speed", according to Gumpert.
