The Brutally Powerful And Beautiful Apollo Arrow Is The World's Newest Hypercar

It has the skills to pay the bills and looks that thrill.

Apollo isn’t a supercar brand that’s well known throughout the world, but its creations are just as crazy as anything made by Lamborghini and can embarass Ferraris on the track. Its new Arrow certainly looks a lot better than its previous vehicles and the automaker is saying the new model has what it takes to be referred to as a hypercar. Does this striking car actually have what it takes to go head to head against the likes of the best hypercars or is it just another hopped up supercar from the brand?

Right off the bat, it’s easy to see that the Arrow looks like a hypercar. Apollo fitted it with a radical aerodynamic kit that creates a massive amount of downforce on the track, keeps drag down to a minimum, aids in cooling and gives the Arrow its incredible look. It’s not as aggressive as the other vehicles from Apollo, but it has pushed the automaker into modern times and we think it’s pretty good looking. Besides giving the Arrow its incredible appearance, Apollo has kept the hypercar’s weight to a minimum at 2,866 pounds. That’s not a lot of weight to be pushed around by the Arrow’s impressive 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which is good for 986 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque.

The engine’s power is put down through a fully synchronized sequential seven-speed CIMA transmission with a twin-plate clutch configuration for lighting quick shifts. In the proper hands, the Arrow can make the sprint to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, to 124 mph in just 8.8 seconds and maxes out at 223 mph. That’s not just fast...that’s hypercar fast. Apollo states that the Arrow is street-legal and meets all FIA standards, which means that it can be homologated for different racing series. The Arrow is a brutally fast and great looking hypercar and we can’t wait to see how it performs against the competition.
