Gumpert GmbH names Evolution MotorSports in Tempe as exclusive USA partner!
In May of 2009 Roland Gumpert, founder and president of Gumpert Sportswagenmanufaktur GmbH maker of the Gumpert apollo, have named Todd Zuccone and Evolution MotorSports as exclusive Performance Partner to establish a dealer network in the Americas and Caribbean.
This is viewed as a promotion for the successful after-market performance company Evolution MotorSports, operated in Tempe Arizona. In the fall of 2008, Mr. Gumpert tapped Evolution MotorSports to be the final assembly and performance validation center for the apollo. However, with the realization that Zuccone and Evolution MotorSports understand the Gumpert apollo is not meant for 15 mile red carpet arrivals as much as 200mph runs on the race track… Mr. Gumpert made the choice to elevate the relationship between the companies.

Mr. Gumpert said, “After many meetings and conversations with Mr. Zuccone, I feel confident that Todd and his team at EVOMS understand my car and the true customer. They are the perfect partner for the apollo.”
Gumpert and Zuccone envision a very small select network of motor sports oriented dealers in regions with large "exotic car" markets. Areas that fit this profile are Miami, New York, Mexico City, Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Toronto.
When asked about the Design goals of the Gumpert apollo, Zuccone says, "If you had a blank sheet of paper, money is not object and you allow for no compromise, what would you build? The Gumpert apollo! We are honored to be chosen to by Mr. Gumpert to help represent and build his company!"
