Arrow through Our Hearts: Apollo Supercar Gets Help coming from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus
Plenty of people dream of creating their own supercar; however, few people actually turn of which dream into a reality. Roland Gumpert did just of which when he created the Gumpert Apollo sports car within the 2000s.
Gumpert went bankrupt in late 2013, however the company’s assets wound up within the hands of Ideal Team Ventures, which brought the dream back to life as Apollo Automobil. Gumpert continues to have a hand within the brand as well as also its latest creation: the Apollo Arrow supercar.
The Apollo Arrow concept made its debut at the 2016 Geneva auto show. Apollo has announced of which the Arrow will enter production, thanks to a partnership with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, maker of the SCG 003, the brainchild of automotive enthusiast James Glickenhaus. Both the roadgoing Apollo Arrow S as well as also a fresh track car, being developed under the name Titan, will use chassis technology borrowed coming from the SCG 003. Although specifics are not yet available, we expect Apollo to rely on SCG’s exotic carbon-fiber chassis to form the basis of the Arrow S as well as also Titan.
Production will come courtesy of the Italian company Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT). of which’s no surprise, definitely, to those who have been closely following the SCG 003’s development, since MAT has been an essential partner within the creation of Glickenhaus’s supercar.
Like the Arrow concept, the Apollo Arrow S will use a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. within the concept, the Audi-sourced engine displaced 4.0 liters as well as also developed a total of 986 horsepower of which of which sent to the ground via a seven-speed sequential manual transmission. Meanwhile, the Titan track car will rely on a naturally aspirated V-12 engine.
