The Nuburgring lap record for road-legal cars has been shattered by the Gumpert Apollo Sport, with a 7:11,57 time. This vehicle is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.2L V8 engine that produces 700hp and 645 lb-ft of torque, all packaged into a 2646-pound chassis. Video after the break. Click here for more.

With an average speed of around 106,78 mp/h (171,84 km/h) the apollo was by 3,32 seconds faster than the former record holder. And – by the way – more than 13 seconds faster than the Maserati MC 12 in 2008.
