Apollo Intensa Emozione
By: Fedora Atjeh | Oktober 25, 2017
Last week, we anticipated that the resurrected Apollo planned to present a brutal hyper-sport packed with power in the Tokyo Motor Show, and here it is. It is called Apollo Intensa Emozione or IE, and only 10 exclusive units will be manufactured, at a price of about 2.3 million euros each.
Aimed at wealthy customers craving exotic products with traditional mechanics, the Apollo IE hides an atmospheric 6.3 liter V12 engine that develops a power of 780 hp and a maximum torque of 760 Nm. All this brute force is transmitted through a six-speed sequential gearbox with cams on the steering wheel.
With a weight of only 1,250 kilograms, thanks to a carbon fiber monocoque, this kind of batmobile is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.7 seconds and surpassing 335 km / h. Of course, it has advanced aerodynamics featuring a gigantic rear spoiler or an aggressive front splitter.
Underneath its hide hides a race-inspired suspension, Brembo carboceramic braking system or an exhaust system that culminates in a central outlet integrated into the bumper. In addition, each client will have the opportunity to participate in the development of the vehicle or compete in timed events on the most famous circuits in Europe.
Custom Made Seats
The futuristic aesthetics also move into the interior, where the color red, from ambient LED lights to carbon fiber moldings, removable steering wheel, digital box, six-point racing harnesses or a 12-inch multimedia screen. Finally, a small 5-inch screen located on the roof allows you to control the heating, air conditioning or interior light.
It should be noted that the seats of the vehicle, with carbon fiber structure and anchored directly to the monohull of the same material - and therefore, the pedal and the steering wheel that can be displaced -, will be made by hand and each customer. If this is what you want, yes, you can also install conventional racing seats.
