at the 2016 geneva motor show, apollo autombil set a new chapter in the company’s history with the ‘arrow’. looking to nature for design cues, the vehicle has a carbon fiber body with an integrated carbon monocoque for safety.

the apollo ‘arrow’ boasts an 1,000 hp V8 engine that pushes the car from zero to 100 km/h in less than 2.9 seconds. using two larger turbochargers on the top instead of the bottom results in a top speed of 360 km/h. it also has an extensively reinforced drivetrain to ensure that it can safely transfer the immense forces. apollo plan to produce a maximum of 100 unique ‘arrows’, each of them exclusively tailored to its owner.

‘the arrow is truly magnificent – it is the perfect combination of german engineering and automotive art,’ explains roland gumpert, CEO and chief engineer at apollo.  ‘although it’s still a prototype, we are confident that the arrow will achieve the unimaginable.’
