Gumpert Apollo S by Autoart

Post by rusel1978 » Thu May 07, 2015 3:39 am

I read good review about Gumpert Apollo S by Autoart from Stratos. I see some collectors can't decide about color of model, I have this in black, so maybe photos will useful.

Both look great in black, but I had to have the Gumpert in Blue. Orange would have been my second choice. I'm a fan of loud supercars with shouty colours. As for the Hennessey, the Matte Black really suits it, but I'm just not a fan of matte colours unfortunately :( They don't tend to age very well.

I see and think now blue Gumpert looks much better ... but black was released first and price was very reasonable, I paid just 140 EUR. And now price looks much worse:

Oh wow! That is a huge difference. But I think CK models adjust their prices based on demand and availability of models, which is bad business

Last time Germany stores set high prices and reason isn't only availability of model and also Euro is going down ... but in any case looks crazy - AutoArt Countach cost same as CMC models :shame: . Prices in US looks better now, but another issue is delivery cost. :cry:

wow...that's an awesome price. Just got that same one & paid about double (though still under current prices).

Very cool little model, though...glad I finally tracked one down.

Yes, price was good, but model is also enough simple. I bought Autoart Lotus Europe for 33 EUR in same time and this model is better.
