Gumpert Apollo Arrow by Schuyler

The Gumpert Apollo Arrow was first revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Before I go any further, though, a bit of background about Gumpert. Ronald Gumpert was born on December 10th, 1944. Gumpert was founded in 2004 under the name of  “GMG Sportwagenmanufaktur Altenburg GmbH”. On July 27, 2008, an Apollo Sport was featured on the UK show Top Gear. Richard Hammond and the Stig drove the Apollo Sport. With a lap time of 1.17.1, the Apollo Sport became the new leader on the Power Lap Board, 0.2 seconds faster than the former lap leader, the Ascari A10. The Apollo was faster than Bugatti Veyron and Pagani Zonda around the Top Gear track. It was later beaten with a time of 01:16.8 by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Anyway, back to the Apollo Arrow. The Apollo Arrow costs approximately 1.1m  dollars. The specs are 0-60 (100 kph) in 2.9 seconds, top speed of 224 mph (360 kph), power of 1000 bhp (brake horsepower) / 735 kW, torque is 1000 Nm@6750rpm (rounds per minute), weight distribution of 769 bhp per tonne, and the engine size is 3993cc (4 litre), and it weighs 2866 lbs (1300kg). Its main competitors are the 2016 Bugatti Chiron, 2016 Faralli & Mazzanti Evantra Millecavali, 2016 W Motors Fenyr SuperSport, Rimac Concept One, and the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. I personally prefer the Apollo Arrow to the Apollo, Apollo S, Explosion, and Tornante. Click for more images. Click for engine sound. Comment below what car I should blog about next, and I will get back to you.
