21 Jun The Apollo IE Hypercar Promises An Intense Emotional Experience
Apollo says that their new IE hypercar is the truest return to a hypercar you’ll find. We guess that’s not too far off the mark. The IE in Apollo IE stands for Intensa Emozione. If you don’t speak Italian, that means, “intense emotion,” which is what this bad boy promises to deliver when you’re behind the wheel. It’s one of the most expensive cars ever produced, costing a pretty $2.7 million each, and comes equipped with a 6.3-liter, V12 engine, that churns out an impressive 780 horsepower (almost as much as the McLaren Senna) 9000 RPM and 580 ft-lbs of torque, in a 2755-pound vehicle made from a super-light carbon fiber body and chassis.
And that’s just the technical specs. Just take a look at the Apollo IE and behold: this is one incredible, unique vehicle. On the back are spoon rear wing twin elements and a carbon flap connected to the “whale-tale” carbon rear, as Apollo calls it. The design is based on “natural elements” – animals and insects that are capable of flying, and according to Apollo, achieves an “organic granularity” that other hypercars can’t quite achieve. And, it could even technically drive upside down, too, thanks to that unique design and the sheer amount of downforce it achieves. The red cockpit racing seats are thing of beauty, too.
If you’d like to get your hands on an IE…good luck. Not only will you have to pony up those $2.7 million, but there will only ever be 10 produced. Ever. But if you were to land one of these…well, it’s guaranteed to be one…intense…emotional…experience. Hey, we’d drive one.
