The Apollo Arrow hypercar is Gumpert's glorious resurrection
There’s a sordid history behind the Apollo Arrow supercar. Its predecessor was the Gumpert Apollo, a wild-looking mid-engined car powered by a twin-turbocharged Audi 4.2-liter V8. Gumpert was founded by Roland Gumpert, an ex-Audi engineer who wanted a no-compromises supercar that would be comfortable enough to daily drive.
Gumpert folded a while back, and the company was revived as Apollo with the backing of a Hong Kong-based venture capital firm. This past March in Geneva, it showed off the Arrow concept, a sleek if somewhat generic-looking supercar. The news today is that Apollo will utilize the chassis that Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus developed for his SCG003, a car we also saw at the same Geneva show in brilliant bare carbon fiber.
