2011 Geneva Preview – Gumpert Tornante – rpmGo.com

Gumpert Tornante

The 2011 Chicago Auto Show is heading towards its end and now we focus our attention on the upcoming automotive event organized in Geneva next month. One of the automakers that will be present is going to be supercar manufacturer Gumpert who will be bringing its latest creation – the Tornante.

They’ve released this teaser to grab our attention and it seems that their new model is a more refined car which will most likely have a more comfortable cabin in comparison to their racing thoroughbred – the 2010 Apollo.

The car will not lose its racing heart as it will get the same impressive V8 twin-turbo 4.2-liter that can be found in the aforementioned Apollo. This engine will be mated to a TT40e transmission and changing the gears will be done with the help of the new set of F1-insired paddle shifters.

Rumors say that Gumpert is also working hard on an alternative-power drivetrain. We’ll let you know once we find out something about this.
