If you are a regular MotorChase reader, you can beat your chest and say “I already knew it”. Because we have told you so a few days ago: the ApolloN is the former Gumpert Apollo. And the Apollo Arrow will be a new car. Their official presentation has confirmed that. Check both of them here: the Arrow (above) and the Gumpert Apollo, or else, the ApolloN (below).
The ApolloN has not changed, as you can see. It has exactly the same engines and the same dimensions. It is 4.46 m long, 2 m wide, 1.11 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.70 m. It weighs 1,200 kg and has a 4.2 Audi V8 that pumps out 515 kW at 6,000 rpm and 880 Nm at 4,000 rpm. It reaches a top speed of 360 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 s. So let’s get to the really interesting part of the new company: the Arrow.
The Arrow is the new model from Apollo. It is 4.89 m long, 1.99 m wide, 2.70 m, 1.22 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.70 m. This is a clear indication that the Arrow uses the same platform of the ApolloN, something the company admits in its official press release and that makes the Arrow be the updated version of the Gumpert Apollo, even if with a new appearance. The engine, on the other hand, is completely new. Instead of the 4.2 Audi V8, it uses a 4.0 V8. It seems to be the same one applied to the Audi RS6, the 4.0 TFSI, with a cubic capacity of 3,993 cm³ and a bore X stroke of 84.5 mm X 89 mm.
This engine generates 736 kW with the help of two twin-scroll turbochargers. Torque is 1,000 Nm, what makes the car reach a top speed of 360 km/h and sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 s. Just like the ApolloN, the Arrow will be further developed in Nürburgring Nordschleife. Apollo’s technical center is in Denkendorf, in Upper Bavaria, Germany. And Roland Gumpert, founder of the former Gumpert car company, will continue to help on the development of the cars. Nice outcome for a story that could have just ejected the creator of this incredible supercar to see all this as a mere spectator.
