Geneva 2016: Apollo Arrow

One of the cars that caught our attention was the (Gumpert) Apollo Arrow. The car that should ensure a beginning of a new chapter for Apollo, which is originally called Gumpert. The Arrow seemed to be a cool car, so we went for a closer look at the car.

Specifications

The Apollo Arrow is basically a racing car. This means that a true race driver can take the most out of the car and someone who thinks he is a race driver will probably crash it. The car is mid engined with an Audi 4.0L  Twin-Turbo V8 engine, will produce around 1000 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. The car is also, just like the Apollo, very, very fast. It has a 0 to 100 kph time of 2.9 seconds, 0 to 200 kph in 8.8 seconds, and a top speed of 360 kph.

The engine of the car is cooled through, of course, the airflow. However, there is also an additional option of a twin air- and water- cooled intercooler.

Nothing produces more downforce than the Apollo Arrow?

Well, this is something to talk about. The Gumpert Apollo already generated so much downforce that it could travel upside down in a tunnel at a speed of 320 kph. Now, Apollo Automobile said that no street legal hypercar produces more downforce than the Apollo Arrow. However, Apollo have not yet announced how much more downforce the car produces in comparison to the Gumpert Apollo.

According to Apollo Automobile, the a car can accelerate, corner, and even slow down, faster through its aerodynamics.

Body

The look of the Apollo Arrow is, with no doubt, outstanding. This car may even be the most beautiful car that I saw on the whole Geneva show (although the Eggs.. Oh man the Eggs!). The body of the Arrow consists of a individual color combination with visible carbon parts. The open the same way as the Apollo N opens them: like a bird!
