The engine used for this car is a 4.2 liter V8 sourced from Audi. Armed with fuel injection, dry sump lubrication, and 2 turbochargers, it is capable of producing 640 horsepower. This engine is further strengthened in Sport trim (690HP), and produces even more in Race trim (790HP). This is enough to produce unbelievable acceleration numbers: zero-to-100 kilometers per hour comes in 3.0 seconds (some even attain times in the 2 second range) and zero-to-200 kilometers per hour comes in a mind boggling 8.9 seconds.
Top speed is recorded at 225 miles per hour. To prove its capability, it made records in various tracks: 7 minutes and 11 seconds is what the Apollo took to finish 1 lap of the Nurburgring, and was for some time the record holder in the TV show Top Gear, notching a lap time of 1 minute and 17.1 seconds.
