APOLLO AUTO MOBIL LTD ANNOUNCES DE- COMMISSIO NING OF ROLAND GUMPERT

Apollo Automobil Ltd would like to announce that Mr. Roland Gumpert has been officially de-commissioned from the company, effective as of June 2016. Mr. Gumpert is no longer associated in any manner with Apollo or its current or future projects.

Ideal Team Ventures Ltd, acquired former Gumpert Sportwagen Manufaktur GmbH in 2014 and has since restructured the company as Apollo Automobil Ltd and is reviving the brand as Apollo. The concept car ‘Arrow’ was unveiled during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and received overwhelming worldwide coverage.
Apollo, under new ownership and management looks forward to its newly announced partnership with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (‘SCG’) and Manifattura Automobili Torino (‘MAT’). The relationship was naturally born as both companies share important values.

The first result of the collaboration is a radically redesigned body powered by a naturallyaspirated V12 track version, project name ‘Titan’, set to be unveiled at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Titan will produce over 800hp and have torque in excess of 700nm. There will also be an Apollo Arrow ‘S’ – a road version powered by a twin-turbo V8 which will debut after the Titan.

The new Apollo Arrow series of production cars will be engineering and produced by MAT and under the supervision of Paolo Garella. An Italian Engineer with 30 years of experience in the automotive field, Paolo Garella has spent a significant portion of his career holding senior technical management positions with Pininfarina, as well as working as an entrepreneur developing a number of unique programs. Along his career, he has developed and built more than 50 one-off cars, based on the most prestigious models of our time. Paolo Garella is the founder and the head of Manifattura Automobili Torino and is also the program director for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus.”

SCUDERIA CAMERON GLICKENHAUS AND APOLLO PARTNER TO DEVELOP THE ALL-NEW APOLLO ARROW

Apollo Automobil Ltd is happy to announce it will be working with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) and Italian manufacturing house Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT) to build the next generation of the Apollo Arrow.

Bespoke hypercar SCG brand is best known for the SCG003C, a unique track car that took on the Nurburgring 24 Hours this year in addition to a number of other races in the VLN Series and DMV GTC, among others. The Italo-American brand is also developing a road car, the SCG003S, to be officially launched at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Ideal Team Ventures Ltd, acquired former Gumpert Sportwagen Manufaktur GmbH in 2014 and has since restructured the company as Apollo Automobil Ltd and is reviving the brand as Apollo. The concept car ‘Arrow’ was unveiled during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and received overwhelming worldwide coverage.

The first result of the collaboration is a radically redesigned body powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 track version, project name ‘Titan’, set to be unveiled in the Spring 2017 and will take part in the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

There will also be an Apollo Arrow ‘S’ – a road version powered by a twin-turbo V8.

Both models will utilise the chassis technology developed for the SCG003C which has proved its performance and reliability at the ultimate test bed of the Nurburgring but will be given the treatment of unmistakable Apollo style.

Italian manufacturer MAT – having engineered and built the SCG003C – is now working on the SCG003S and will develop the Apollo Arrow, providing its technical expertise in all areas of the creation of this beautiful hypercar.

The partnership will allow SCG and MAT to showcase their expertise and craftsmanship in bringing Apollo’s cars to life. SCG, MAT and Apollo all have the same passion and drive for excellence as they aim to create a unique Apollo GT car.

SCG’s founder Jim Glickenhaus commented: “I’m really excited to be working on this project with Apollo. The Arrow is a thing of beauty and we can definitely bring a lot of technical know how to the table from our successful experience of competing on the toughest races in motorsport.”

Apollo’s chairman Norman Choi added: “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.”
