Geneva motor show: Gumpert Tornante

Updated: 


Gumpert, the German manufacturer responsible for the bonkers Apollo, has unveiled the second model in its range - the Tornante - at the Geneva motor show.

A more elegant and sleek car than the slightly manic Apollo, the Tornante is aimed at providing more of a GT-style experience for customers.

The performance will still be there though - the engine is a twin-turbo 4.2-litre V8 with a colossal output of 700bhp.

Gumpert says that the suspension is more biased towards comfort than outright speed, however, so don't expect any lap records at the Nordschleife to fall just yet.

The Tornante will be built at Gumpert's Altenburg HQ in Germany, alongside its Apollo sister car and initial deliveries are expected to take place later this year.
