Deal could be announced soon

2012 has been a rough year for specialty automakers as Melkus and Gumpert have both filled for insolvency. Thankfully, there's some good news as the latter company has reportedly found a new investor.

Dutch magazine Auto Visie is reporting that several investors were interested in the company and the automaker recently picked the candidate they were most comfortable with. There's no word on who the mysterious investor is, but an employee has confirmed the Apollo will live on.

When asked about a potential deal, a spokesperson said "We cannot say anything about the future prospects of Gumpert." Despite this, Auto Visie says an official announcement will be made soon.

Hmmm that car is strange, It has MP4-12C headlights, Jaguar F type front bumper and Bugatti Veyron taillights. Although the F type come after this car.

Y cant these companies make a simple v6 sports car that they can mass produce to make some cash so they can work on the super cars.

Because they don't want to mass produce cars. They want to build their vision of a sportscar.

even if they build cars for the common man, there will always be others who build cars for those who want exclusivity so the common man can only stare at pictures.

Good news. I hope the project will last so that we can see new models such as the Tornante going alive.
