Ryan Berris, general manager of Apollo Automobil, said: "the company has carried out a feasibility study, if the user needs, the company can carry out further engine research and development to push its maximum power output up to 1000 Hp. The maximum speed of the engine is above 11000 rpm, and the compression rate is 16.5:1.
Berris added: "Normally, the 780-800 HP power output is sufficient, let alone a lightweight overrun."
But now that Apollo IE can achieve the above performance parameter value, why not realize it now?
Berris said in an email: "the company has the ability and the way to achieve this goal, but the root lies in the cost choice. From the point of view of the car, if the maximum power and weight of the running under the flag can reach nearly 800 Hp and 1250 kg, the vehicle uses silicon carbide (SIC), the aerodynamic performance and the steering performance of the vehicle are good, not to mention the model is not a linear acceleration type. "
"Frankly speaking, if we really increase the power output to 1000 Hp, to a certain extent, it will have an impact on the use of vehicles. The car is positioned closer to the car, sacrificing a certain degree of stability, as such vehicles usually repair the engine for every 10,000 kilometers they travel.
Berris speculated that further upgrades to such engines would force them to use high-octane fuel, such as No. 98.
More and more mass production vehicles are moving towards the maximum power output value of the 1000 Hp engine. The cooperative R & D partner of Apollo IE is HWA, which is split from Mercedes-AMG company. If users are willing to invest in R & D, the above goals can be achieved.
Interestingly, Apollo IE is a few high speed, natural intake runs, and its competitors in this field are only Brabham BT62, which has a maximum output of 700 Hp.
And a few of the modern super runs such as RPM are nearly 9000. The maximum speed of the Mercedes-AMG Project One model can reach 11000 rpm, with F1 configuration and 1.6 L turbocharged V6 engine, but it is not comparable to that of the 6.3 L natural intake type V-12 engine.
