The world class German beast gets angry... or angrier...

The German built Gumpert has always been the Mickey Rourke of European supercars: not pretty, almost impossible to handle and will punch you in the teeth if you’re not paying very close attention. Its Apollo supercar, since its inception in 2005, has always been a track car barely homologated for street use — not the other way around, like say a Ferrari or Lambo or even a Bugatti which a soccer mom could drive smoothly in low gears. Not the Gumpert. No, it’ll body slam you like the Wrestler and then rape you like Angel Heart if you don’t watch closely. Now the coachbuilder is releasing two new iterations of their infamous Apollo — an 860 hp track car called the Apollo R and an incredibly exclusive limited edition street car aptly titled the Apollo Enraged. Just how exclusive is the Enraged? Only three will be built. Boasting a 780 horsepower 4.2 liter twin-turbocharged V8 sourced from Audi, the Enraged offers world class power-to-weight ratios thanks to its slim 2,590 lbs (1,175 kgs) mass. Having just debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Enraged will be Gumpert’s most powerful street legal car ever, and that’s saying something.
