Following the unveil of last year’s 1,000-horsepower Arrow, German builder Apollo presents a new hypercar, dubbed Intensa Emozione, which translates “intense emotion.” Referred to as IE for short, the ride is designed to be as raw and as pure as a car can be.
Under the hood you will find a 6.3-liter V12 developed with Autotecnica Motori, cranking out 769 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque, thus redlining at 9,000 rpm. This ultimately allows the vehicle to travel from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds, before topping out at 208 miles per hour.
Additionally, the IE is naturally aspirated and features no electrification at all. With such power, traction control is then available, as well as optional lower power settings. You can, however, turn the traction control completely off.
Thanks to a carbon fiber chassis and body, the hypercar weighs in at 2,756 pounds, roughly the same as a Toyota 86. The IE’s standout wings and splitters in turn produce nearly 3,000 pounds of downforce at 186 miles per hour, as the car’s specially-designed Michelin tires are capable of over 2.0-g cornering.
Apollo is only slated to build 10 editions of the IE, each for approximately $2.72 million USD.
