If you want (and can afford) the most extreme-looking supercar in the world, then you’d probably look at something from Pagani or Koenigsegg – but now there’s another option: the new Apollo Intensa Emozione, or IE for short.
Apollo’s latest supercar has a jaw-dropping appearance, featuring a striking bodywork that looks like it’s going to cut you if you stand too close to it. Wherever you look, you’ll find sharp creases and flowing lines that end up in a massive rear wing and a triple exhaust setup shaped like a trident.
The carbon chassis is bespoke for the IE, with the monocoque incorporating front and rear subframes made out of the same lightweight material. The pushrod front and rear suspension features adaptive dampers from Bilstein, while the anti-roll bars are also adjustable.
Powering this beast is a Ferrari-sourced, naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12. Apollo says that the unit has been further developed and produces in excess of 780hp and 560lb-ft (760Nm) of torque and revs up to 9,000rpm. It also features a selection between three map-modes: Wet, Sport and Track.
The transmission is a six-speed sequential unit from Hewland, which is lighter than any dual-clutch gearbox in the market and features fully interchangeable gear ratios.
Seeing the Apollo IE out there in the real world must be a unique experience, but for the rest of us who will never get to see any of the 10 planned examples, this video from NM2255 ought to suffice.
