German supercar maker Gumpert didn't bring any new models to the Geneva show this year - just a couple of current-generation Apollos, seen above - but it did come bearing some interesting news about prospective vehicles. In a brief press release that mentions new investment in the company, Gumpert's managing director says, "Our distribution and dealer networks are being expanded worldwide and sister models will soon be added to the Apollo. What's more, we'll already be presenting the first of these models this year at a major trade fair."
