Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH will be presenting the apollo speed at the
79th Geneva Motor Show. The racer made in Germany has
earned his name, and rightly so. For any speed limit is pointless!
Whereas optimum performance for racetracks, lateral acceleration and
grip in all situations are the focus of apollo, apollo sport and
apollo race, the apollo speed is aimed at an exclusive high speed
clientele. Its domain is the mastery of highest speeds. Thanks to
polished aerodynamics the drive side values of the speed are far
above those of the competition.
Form follows Function
The appearance of apollo
speed is now even more classy and aggressive. His striking two tone
paint emphasises the racers compact appearance, at 1,105mm being
lower that his brothers at 1,114mm.
A good look from the front reveals the changed design around the
wheel arches. A low restrict induction system rounds off the snappy
appearance and provides fresh air to the engine. Further
modifications have been made to the rear end of this super sports
car: The redesigned tail lights concisely show where the apollo is
headed to, before it vanishes from the sight of its pursuer. The
two-seater also has a small adjustable spoiler to lend it the
required drive side for its
With a fully enclosed
CAS underbody (carbon / aluminium sandwich) and wheel caps (fixed at
the front and rotating at the back) the speed takes Formula 1 to the
road and is just asking for a challenge to a sprint.
The powerful 8 cylinder
Biturbo of apollo speed provides an optional 650 / 700 / 800 HP and
a torque of
850 / 875 / 900 Nm. His performance is top class: The car can go
from standing still to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds.
A speed of 200 km/h is
reached in just 8.9 seconds. His maximum speed is over 360 km/h.
(Depending on equipment, country-related specifications, gear ratio
and engine power) The racer impresses by its sportive,
elegantly equipped interior.
It is available with
either leather or Alcantara, and provides a whole panoply of
details, such as air conditioning and a DVD moniceiver. The
removable steering wheel makes it easy to get in. Embedded in the
monocoque and held in by 4 point seat belts, the driver becomes one
with the apollo. An intense bond!
