Gumpert is back & better than before

The automaker once known as Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH has received a new lease on life thanks to wealthy investors at a holding company named Ideal Team Ventures Limited. What’s that matter? Well, Ideal Team has poured resources into the automaker, effectively allowing it to rebirth itself with a new product. That product debuted at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as the Apollo Arrow – a 1,000-horsepower hypercar ready to compete in the exclusive league of built-to-order collectibles.

The automaker, now called Apollo Automobil GmbH, appears ready to redefine itself as a legitimate threat to other hypercar builders. "I have always been a big fan of the Gumpert Apollo. It was, in my opinion, a thoroughbred hypercar that stood out among its competitors," said Norman Choi, owner of Ideal Team Ventures Limited. "I’m excited to have the opportunity to revive, reinvent and rebuild this legendary, record-breaking vehicle.”

Though the company went through a restructuring, Roland Gumpert continues to act as Apollo’s CEO and chief engineer. "The Arrow is truly magnificent – it is the perfect combination of German engineering and automotive art," Gumpert says about the car. "Although it’s still a prototype, we are confident that the Arrow will achieve the unimaginable."

This marks a new chapter for Apollo, thanks to its new investor, fresh engineering practices, and as we’ll see with the Arrow, a new design style that mimics the natural world.

Apollo To Team Up With Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus To Build 1,000-Horsepower Arrow Supercar

Apollo To Team Up With Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus To Build 1,000-Horsepower Arrow Supercar

Italian manufacturing house Manifattura Automobili Torino is also part of the collaboration

Apollo Automobil GmbH’s reincarnation from the doomed Gumpert brand is about ready to switch into high gear after the company announced a partnership with Scudera Cameron Glickenhaus to co-develop the production version of the 1,000-horsepower Apollo Arrow concept that was shown at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Even better, the collaboration will also include Italian manufacturing firm Manifattura Automobili Torino, the same company that helped build James Glickenhaus’ SCG003 S supercar.

Details are scarce at this point, but according to Autocar, the three companies have set out a timetable for this cooperation, which will initially involve producing a race-spec version of the Arrow concept under the project codename Titan. The car is being touted to have a V-12 engine and will be finished in time for it to make the hill climb at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. From there, a V-8-powered road car called the Arrow S will follow, albeit without a timetable at the moment.

Admittedly, there are still plenty of things to be ironed out before this collaboration effectively gets off the ground. But the optimism is real from all parties concerned, particularly from Glickenhaus himself, who described the Arrow concept as a “thing of beauty” and expressed confidence that SCG can “bring a lot of technical know-how to the table from our successful experience of competing on the toughest races in motorsport.”

For its part, Apollo seems to share that sentiment, as chairman Norman Choi was quoted saying that “the SCG003C is a really impressive car and I’m looking forward to working with the team to develop our new Apollo Arrow and create something truly special.”

Here’s to hoping that this partnership lives up to its potential, and then some.
