Gumpert is back in business from bankruptcy as Apollo, thanks to a new Hong Kong-based investor and it has almost filled up its order books for its Apollo Arrow supercar. Apollo will build the Arrows out of a new factory in Germany, but will only make 100 examples.

Founder Roland Gumpert is still running the company, and his latest creation is closely based on his old Gumpert Apollo, though now the car’s Audi-sourced 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 is expected to make 1,000 horsepower and 740 lbs-ft of torque and this is delivered to the ground via a sequential 7-gear CIMA transmission and Torsen differential. Apollo has targeted a curb weight of less than 2,866 pounds (1,300 kilograms).

That should help the Arrow fly through the gears and on its way up to 100 km/h from zero in a predicted 2.9 seconds; top speed is, theoretically, 360km/h. The curvy bodywork is, of course, also totally unlike the old Gumpert’s, which featured side intakes and exhaust vents defined by straight lines.
