Whereas optimum performance for racetracks, lateral acceleration and grip in all situations are the focus of the Apollo, Apoll Sport and Apollo Speed is aimed at an exclusive high speed clientel. 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.

The appearance of the Apollo Speed is now even more classy and aggressive. His striking two tone paint emphasises the racer's 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 intoxicating speed.

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 the 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)

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!
