Italy-based supercar manufacturer Apollo has teased a new supercar named as IE. In 2016, the automaker debuted the Arrow supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Apollo was formed after Germany's Gumpert went bankrupt and is now owned by Chinese investors.
The IE supercar is likely to be the track-only version of the Arrow. The Apollo IE will make its debut later this month, and the deliveries will commence from early 2018.
Apollo will manufacture only ten examples of the track focussed supercar. The owners of the car will receive a driver training program at Europe's top racing circuits. During the debut of the Arrow, Apollo announced a race version is in the works, named as Titan.
Apollo had confirmed that the Titan would be equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine capable of producing 800bhp. The IE will also feature carbon fibre elements for internal parts and body panels.
Previously, Apollo had partnered with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus for the development of the car. But later they parted, and now the automaker is working with Italian firm Manifattura Automobili Torino.
Chairman of Apollo, Norman Choi said, "We wanted to build a car that would fill that void separating car and driver-so we built the Apollo IE."
The Apollo IE supercar will be a track-only machine, and only ten units of the car will be manufactured. Only a few other automakers such as McLaren, Ferrari and Aston Martin has produced cars for pure racing. Now Apollo joins this list.
