When Apollo unveiled its new sports car, the Arrow, at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016, supercar fans fired off. After all, he was not only the spiritual successor of Gumpert Apollo, but also the certainty of its continuity. Renamed, the Gumpert Apollo, now called Apollo N, would continue to be sold. But things did not go as planned.RolandGumpert, the father of hypercar, left the company in November 2016. Ideal Team Venture, owner of the brand and also of De Tomaso, did not put the Arrow into production. It seemed that everything was going to go wrong until the appearance of the teaser of Apollo IE, this car you see in the image above.
The model will no longer have the V8 4.0 biturbo engine that equipped both the Apollo N and the Arrow, of Audi origin. Now, there is talk of a V12, probably of Mercedes-Benz origin, like the one used in the Pagani. From Arrow, what seems to be left over is the huge rear wing, but even it is different. The most extraordinary thing you can see in the model, however, is the exhaust. In fact, the 3 exits, joined in the center of the rear of the car as if they were petals. And you can see better in the cleared image that we can get.
