Well now Streetfire.net has informed us that the Gumpert Apollo will be making its way across the ocean and into the freedom of the U.S. The even better news about this is that it will not just be another Euro-plated import.
The automaker announced this week that they have partnered up with Evolution MotorSports – an Arizona-based tuning company. Together they will handle the U.S. market final assembly of a total of ten cars per year. They will also be handling the performance validation of the car.
They’ll then be shipped off to the exclusive US dealer, European Touch in sunny Los Angeles. Below is a press release announcing the news.
â€œGumpert Partners with Evolution MotorSports for US Market!â€
Tempe, AZ – Today Gumpert Sportswagenmanufaktur GmbH and Evolution MotorSports announced Gumpert has selected Evolution MotorSports in Tempe Arizona as their US market final assembly and Performance Validation center for the Gumpert Apollo.
Gumpert has selected Evolution MotorSports due to their understanding the balance between consumers expectation for a car that is competent for the racetrack and the ability to hold the exceptionally high standards that Gumpert will demand for the chassis delivered to the US market. Gumpert feels it is imperative for all US cars to be Performance Validated and comprehensibly checked, all before being delivered to the exclusive United State Dealer, European Touch in Huntington Beach California.
The Gumpert Apollo is a hand made coupe, available in a Street, GT or Race Car Configuration. The Apollo was recently featured on an episode of the UK Automotive show Top Gear where it was celebrated as the fastest around their test track over the last several seasons.
Gumpert representatives have stated that â€œThe selection of Evolution MotorSports was an easy choice. Evolution MotorSports dedication to providing an excellent finished product, attention to detail and customer service have no rival that could come close to providing the finished product required.â€
Todd Zuccone, Founder of Evolution MotorSports commented, â€œAll we do are Insanely Tuned Luxury Exotics. We examined the Gumpert Apollo and I knew that EVOMS was the correct choice for Performance Validation. Something Evolution MotorSports customers have known for a long time. We are honored to have been selected by the Gumpert team.”
