Apollo Scythes Into Geneva With 986bhp Arrow

Written By:

Apollo have unveiled the Arrow at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Apollo is the rebranded version of German carmaker Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur which went bankrupt and was bought by Chinese investment firm Consolidated Ideal TeamVenture.

The Arrow is powered by a 4-litre bi-turbo V8 sourced from Audi which pushes out 986bhp and 1,000Nm of torque.

Apollo expects the Arrow to weigh in at just under 1300 kilograms when it goes into production, giving the new supercar a power to weight ratio of 758bhp/ton.

Apollo predicts the Arrow will sprint from 0–100km/h in 2.9 seconds and will top out at 360km/h.

Unlike its predecessors that bore the Gumpert name, the Arrow looks quite cool. But despite all the swoopy lines (the only thing that doesn't seem angular are the rear lights) the Arrow still goes for the best aerodynamic package. All the swoopy lines are there to channel air to maximise downforce.

To help provide even more downforce there is a huge splitter up front and an even larger diffusor at the rear. Also present is a fixed rear spoiler.

Apollo haven't revealed any details about when the Arrow will go into production and what price it will command as the car is still in pre-production form.
