APOLLO / GERMANY

The German APOLLO manufactury started car production in  Apolda, a small town in Thuringia / Germany in 1910. The first years they were quite successful with the model PICCOLO.
Karl Slevogt, who had worked as engineer for LAURIN & KLEMENT , was engaged by APOLLO. A 1921 prototype with a V-8 engine was not put into production.

They also played with the six letters A P O L L O  and designed a car with them:
