    Gumpert claims new Nordschleife record

    Rumor has it that the Gumpert Apollo Speed lapped NoS yesterday in 7:11,5 Smiley Lap measured in Supertest format (couple of seconds missing for a full lap). If I recall correctly the car has a dry weight of 1,200 kg and around 700 hp. I'm sure there will be some kind of official statement from Gumpert anytime soon.

    Nope, Suzuki-san would have clocked a sub 7 min time with this rocket Smiley
    Driver was Florian Gruber (drove one of the factory Sciroccos in the 24h race)

    Impressive!

    Although, I thought Radical was holding the Nordschleife record with 6'55'' ?

    Re: Gumpert claims new Nordschleife record

    If I recall correctly there have been doubts whether the Radical would have complied with the TÜV rules for streetlegal cars. But then - who cares about the TÜV if one can lap the NoS at Warp speed Smiley

    Re: Gumpert claims new Nordschleife record

    That Apollo is powered by an MTM-built bi-turbo V8, based on the 4.2L FSI V8 from the RS4-I am doing his SC kit for my RS4-delayed until next month.  Advertised "base" tune is 650PS, with "room" for up to 800PS.  Roland Mayer also has a "project" motor that takes the W12 from the A8 and quad-turbocharges it to 800PS/1000Nm.  I'm going to see if Mayer could fit one of those lumps into an Audi S5 coupe.

    Re: Gumpert claims new Nordschleife record

    Here is a report on the Sportauto website (sorry, only in German):

    http://www.sportauto-online.de/news/nordschleife-rundenzeitenrekord-gumpert-apollo-sport-florian-gruber-1382398.html

    Actually Florian Gruber said that he wasn't driving at the car's limit (report mentions that there was no single drop of sweat on his face after the hot lap Smiley) and that he thinks it could be good enough even for a sub 7 lap Smiley

    Sportauto will perform the Supertest with the regular Apollo mid September Smiley

    No wonder the guy was not sweating, given these speeds Smiley Sub 7 Min should be easy given that he was only at 252 in the Fuchsroehre Smiley

    I'm cr@pping myself at 130mph, it's that little hump on the apex made even more scary by a friend coming off there recently.  But 180mph is....well its.....y'know....mental. :)  It loooked so planted through there though. Smiley

    Re: Gumpert claims new Nordschleife record

    I really hope this guy knows what he's doing, if the hardware fails...well...

    Besides this, impressive performance, I'm curious if and when he hits the 7 minute barrier.
