Apollo IE Hypercar teased

Apollo IE Hypercar teased

Remember Gumpert Apollo? That´s the gull-winged supercar from German automaker Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH which had a short-lived production run between 2005 and 2012. Roland Gumpert, the founder and CEO of Apollo, left the company early last year and the firm was then acquired by Hong Kong-based Ideal Team Venture. Now officially known as Apollo Automobil, the firm is looking to make a comeback to the supercar business and has teased a new car with ´IE´ initials.

Of the single teaser image that has been put out, the niche marque shows off what looks like a futuristic and other-worldly spaceship. With the large carbon fibre wing at the posterior, hypercar-esque rear fenders and a triad of centrally mounted funky exhaust tips, the new IE hypercar looks quite similar to the Jackson Storme racecar from the Cars 3 franchise.

The bulging fenders are reminiscent of the Arrow Concept showcased by the carmaker at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. No other official details about the upcoming hypercar are available at the moment.However, the word on the street is that the IE hypercar will be a road going version of the Arrow race car. The Arrow packed a twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine producing a whopping 1,000 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque channelling all the madness via a seven-speed sequential gearbox.

Arrow had helped the American firm Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus in the development of the SCG003. This partnership was expected to spawn the production spec of the Arrow racecar. However, the American firm is no longer involved with Apollo. Italy-based Manifattura Automobili Torino is the new partner for the IE, and theywill provide a revised version of the naturally aspirated V-12 capable of producing an excess of 800 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

More details will be available in the days to come.
