This week we were given  the unique opportunity by MICHELIN to get a couple of laps in the Gumpert Apollo supercar.

The Apollo holds the record around the Nürburgring for the fastest lap for a production road-legal car with a lap time of 7:11.57.

Hope you enjoy the video below…

Editors Note: Sorry it’s not the smoothest of video – recorded on a handheld video camera.
