Reborn specialty marque Apollo has arrived in Geneva with its brand new Arrow which aims to compete with the big names in the supercar territory.
Apollo describes the design as being softer than what we’re used to, but even so the Arrow looks spectacular thanks to a wide and aggressive body featuring a massive wing and a roof scoop. The design’s fluidity is the result of numerous optimizations to achieve greater aerodynamic efficiency as you would come to expect from a supercar.
Its heart and soul is a biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine (likely sourced from Audi) that pushes out 1,000 horsepower and 1,000 newton meters of torque. All that power is channeled to the road via a sequential seven-speed gearbox working together with a self-locking Torsen differential.
Apollo is targeting a curb weight of less than 2,866 pounds (1,300 kilograms) and says the Arrow will be able to hit 62 mph (100 kph) in only 2.9 seconds. It will need just 8.8 seconds until 124 mph (200 kph) and will continue to accelerate until 223 mph (360 kph.)
The Arrow will ride on large 20-inch front and 21-inch monoblock cast wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that are stopped efficiently by AP Racing brakes with six-piston calipers. The ride height is manually adjustable (between 40 mm and 120 mm) and there’s also an automatic lift system boosting ground clearance by 40 mm at both axles.
Although it doesn’t look like it, the Apollo Arrow is street legal and at the same time meets all FIA standards, so it can be easily homologated for a variety of racing series.
