Chalk it up to youthful hubris. A 20-year old man totalled a 200+mph Gumpert Apollo on a country road in Germany, careening 60 meters into a pasture and reducing the 700-horsepower car to scrap.
A girl was in the passenger seat, rather unsurprisingly—what’s surprising is that she was willing to be seen in the Apollo, a car not particularly known for its svelte looks. Thanks to the carbon-fiber passenger compartment, both occupants suffered only minor injuries and were transported by ambulance to a hospital.
The car was not his, and the police are investigating charges of negligent assault. It’s not known whether she will call him for a second date.
