Default 0-62 mph 3.0 sec The Gumpert Apollo

Came across this car on the web check it out
http://www.fourtitude.com/news/publi...cle_1238.shtml

MidEngined Rear wheel drive
650-hp @ 6800 rpm
torque-597 lb ft @ 5000 rpm
156-hp per liter

Visually looks good but i feel a little less usage of "chicken Grill" over the engine bay would be nice, maybe it helps in heat ventilation ?

The quoted performance figures seem a bit far fetched-i mean 650 bhp from a 4.2lt audi engine.I assume its the same one that they use for the A8?And all that performance is supposed to be derived on only 13 inch rims

It's not 13" wheels, it's 13" wide rear wheels. 19 x 13 to be precise.

Rear tyre is 345mm, 13.58 inches.
