Apollo IE Going Flat-Out Is The Very Definition Of Aural Delight

In a segment dominated by the big players within the industry, Apollo is trying to make a stand with the Intensa Emozione, also known as IE.

And what emotions it’s capable of creating, thanks to its carefully sculpted body, whose lines and creases come together to create a stunning design that looks fast even when it’s stationary.

The bedroom poster status of the Apollo IE is being backed up by some clever engineering, including pushrod front and rear suspension with adaptive dampers, adjustable anti-roll bars and a carbon fiber chassis.

Power is coming from a Ferrari-sourced engine, namely the naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 unit that normally resides in the LaFerrari, albeit without the hybrid parts. Apollo claims that they have further refined the mill, making it produce 780 PS (769 hp / 574 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque in the process, and mated it to a sequential six-speed transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

With a curb weight of 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs), the Apollo IE can rocket to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.7 seconds, according to the German automaker formerly known as Gumpert, and goes up to in excess of 335 km/h (208 mph).

With only 10 units set to be manufactured, at a price of over $2.7 million (€2.3 million) each, it’s basically a collector’s item, albeit one that constantly goes out of hibernation to show what it’s made of.

In the latest video, the Apollo IE was spotted at a Swiss airstrip during a supercar meeting over the weekend, going flat-out on a few occasions, much to the delight of the bystanders.
