The Apollo Arrow hypercar is Gumpert's glorious resurrection
Apollo, the company formerly known as Gumpert, has partnered with SGP to build its 986bhp and 737lb ft model.

There's a sordid history behind the Apollo Arrow supercar. Its predecessor was the Gumpert Apollo, a wild-looking mid-engined car powered by a twin-turbocharged Audi 4.2-liter V8. Gumpert was founded by Roland Gumpert, an ex-Audi engineer who wanted a no-compromises supercar that would be comfortable enough to daily drive.

 

 

Gumpert folded a while back, and the company was revived as Apollo with the backing of a Hong Kong-based venture capital firm. This past March in Geneva, it showed off the Arrow concept, a sleek if somewhat generic-looking supercar. The news today is that Apollo will utilize the chassis that Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus developed for his SCG003, a car we also saw at the same Geneva show in brilliant bare carbon fiber.

 

 

The SCG003 uses a carbon-fiber chassis and a twin-turbocharged Honda V6. The Apollo Arrow will ditch this powerplant for two others. The track model, code-named "Titan," will feature a naturally aspirated V12. The road-oriented model, called Arrow S, will lose four cylinders, but gain a pair of turbos. However, Apollo hasn't revealed which company will provide the engines, but it's possible the Arrow S will have an Audi engine. The Arrow shown at Geneva was powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged Audi V8, and as already mentioned, the Apollo N also uses an Audi powertrain. As for that V12, we should have details this spring when the Arrow makes its debut. We'll also get to see it run, as Apollo intends to take it to the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
