MEET THE NEW APOLLO IEDate: 2017-10-30
Meet the Apollo IE, the 780 horsepower is the new kid on the hypercar block that makes Lamborghini’s and Pagani’s look subtle. The guys at Apollo think the likes of the McLaren P1 and the LaFerrari are too soft.
This is the Apollo Intensa Emozione (IE for short), which features a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine whose source is unnamed but whose specifications mirror those of Ferrari’s current V12. It is matched to a paddle-shifted Hewland racing transaxle driving the rear wheels. From the beginning, the Apollo team set out to build a car that is lightweight, aerodynamically efficient and connected, but unimpeded by any emotionally dilutive technological systems.
The IE is a Superleggera that combines the aerodynamic efficiency and mechanical grip of a modern GT1/GT3/LMP race car with the classical thrill of a high-revving naturally aspirated V12. This car has an organic granularity that other modern hypercars strive for, but are unable to deliver. All this while featuring a modern, intensively striking design language that symbolizes the brand.
The Apollo IE is a car that captures the lost emotion and fading spirit of the cars we grew up loving. A car with its own soul, a car that provides the driver with modern, yet nostalgically pure, unadulterated sensory experience. A car that lives and breathes with intense emotion, this is Intensa Emozione.
This is the Apollo IE.
