The Apollo N is a mid-engined hypercar by Gumpert/Apollo Automobil GmbH.
The Apollo N was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as an updated version of the Gumpert Apollo. The 'N' in the name symbolizes the Nürburgring, the race track Apollo plans to use to hone all of its future cars.
The specifications of the N match those of Gumpert's most recent Apollo, the Apollo S. Power comes from an Audi twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter V8, rated at 690 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque. Drive is to the rear wheels only, via a 7-speed sequential transmission.

The Apollo N is a very well-rounded car, with great acceleration, far better than other top-end B Class cars like the BMW M2 Special Edition, though not as quick as the McLaren MP4/8's. It also has great handling, drifting, and nitro duration. The Apollo N has a maximum real total speed of 448.7 km/h - 278.6 mph at MAX+PRO with Tuning Kit activated. Unlike most other Class B cars, the Apollo N has a low raw speed increase when upgraded, the same as that of the Porsche Cayman GT4.
The Apollo N is only a collector's car as its performance is inferior to the McLaren MP4/8 in all aspects. Furthermore, the Apollo N's steep upgrade costs, restrictive availability, and difficult Championship event diminishes any usability. Its required engines can instead be used for better cars like the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.
The Apollo N is a poor choice for multiplayer as its starting rank of 1530 puts it in races with multiplayer tuned Audi R8 e-tron Special Editions, McLaren MP4/8s, Apollo Intensa Emozione, Porsche Carrera GTs, and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Editions, all of which the Apollo N is guaranteed to lose against. Its multiplayer competitiveness is very similar to that of the Ferrari LaFerrari, albeit with a stronger focus on nitro. Plus, the LaFerrari is already faster at MAX+PRO, albeit only by 1.4 km/h/0.9 mph.
Price & Availability
The Apollo N can only be obtained by completing its Championship event.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 2,400,000 while Pro Kits require 800,000, 42 of each Class B Part, 30 Early & Initial Techs each, 52 Mid-Techs, and 72 V8 Engines.

The Apollo N's Championship was launched on April 11, 2018 after the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV's revived EDD event. It was revived on January 4, 2019 in the Holiday Update as part of the Asphalt Moments series. Players are given 4 days to start the event and 7 days to complete it.
Asphalt 9: Legends
The Apollo N was added in the Road Kings Update as a high-end Class B car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 2,603 (30 BPs)
- rank: 2,798
- rank: 3,078 (7 BPs)
- rank: 3,328 (13 BPs)
- rank: 3,690 (21 BPs)
- rank: 4,047 (32 BPs)
The Apollo N has well-rounded performance with a top speed of 360 km/h / 223.6 mph. This is faster than any other Class B or A car but is limited by average nitro efficiency.
