Apollo is already developing its Intensa Emozione successor, but the IE is still a stunning vehicle that grabs attention everywhere it goes. Apollo began deliveries in 2020, building just 10 examples of the stylish supercar. Saw one thing that rarely happens, but the supercar has recently been doing the rounds around the Nurburgring, and Misha Charoudin’s YouTube channel can do it.
It’s the IE’s maiden voyage on the Nurburgring race track, and the development driver behind the wheel makes it easy on laps out. The supercar costs $2.6 million, and the last thing a driver wants to do is spend that kind of money. Turns are fast, and the car sounds great, with a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine that makes 780 horsepower (582 kilowatts) and 560 pound-feet (759 Newton-meters) of torque.
The Apollo achieved a low roadside weight – 1,250 kilograms (2,756 pounds) – with extensive use of carbon fiber for the body and chassis. The car’s low weight and high-powered engine allow it to reach 207 miles per hour (333 kilometers per hour). The car’s monocoque weighs just 105 kg (231 lbs), and the car can reach 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.7 seconds. Apollo partnered with HWA to manufacture the car, and the two worked together on the development of the car.
The Apollo Evo project is the successor to IE, which the company launched late last year. Project Evo uses a slightly more subtle wild style than the IE design. The car is equipped with X-shaped daytime running lights, aero fins, an adjustable and adjustable rear spoiler, and large triangular air intakes. Apollo has not specified what type of engine powers the Evo. Apollo also shows off
The Apollo IE is a powerful new hypercar that has the power to do scorching laps on the Nurburgring race track. This first outing isn’t the car’s chance to run like it used to. Limited production of the car could mean a second attempt might not happen for a while.
