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

2016 Geneva Motor Show

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

Apollo isn’t a supercar brand that’s well known throughout theworld, but its creations are just as crazy as anything made by Lamborghini and can embarass Ferraris on the track. Its new Arrow certainlylooks a lot better than its previous vehicles and the automaker is saying thenew model has what it takes to be referred to as a hypercar. Does this strikingcar 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 lookslike a hypercar. Apollo fitted it with a radical aerodynamickit that creates a massive amount of downforce on the track, keeps drag down toa minimum, aids in cooling and gives the Arrow its incredible look. It’s not asaggressive as the other vehicles from Apollo, but it has pushed the automakerinto modern times and we think it’s pretty good looking. Besides giving the Arrowits incredible appearance, Apollo has kept the hypercar’s weight to a minimum at 2,866 pounds. That’s not a lot of weight to bepushed 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 synchronizedsequential seven-speed CIMA transmission with a twin-plate clutch configuration forlighting quick shifts. In the proper hands, the Arrow can make the sprint to 62mph in 2.9 seconds, to 124 mph in just 8.8 seconds and maxes out at 223 mph. That’snot 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 homologatedfor 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.
