Apollo Automobil has revealed its first ever production car, the Intensa Emozione, and it seems like they can win our hearts with just a simple look at this amazing supercar.
Intensa Emozione comes with a 6.3-litre, naturally aspirated V12. 769bhp propelling just 1250kg of car. Oh, and a ludicrously extreme aero package that generates 1350kg of downforce at 186mph. For context, a Renault RS.01 racing car produces 1250kg at the same speed. It’s essentially a track-only version of the Arrow concept revealed last year, and it’s staggeringly fast. 0-62mph is done and dusted in 2.7 seconds, the top speed is 208mph, and it’ll pummel your face with lateral forces of up to 2.0g in the corners. Just 10 will be made, at a cost of €2.3 million (£2.05m) each. Ouch.
As well as an unhinged supercar with styling that makes the Batmobile look understated, buyers will be given access to Apollo’s ‘Time Attack’ programme, taking place at “the most relevant European racing circuits,” the company says. IE owners can even go along to the firm’s private testing sessions, should they wish. All sounds very lovely, but what if you’re a mega rich supercar buyer and want to drive away from the track too? Don’t worry: Apollo is promising that the road-legal Arrow will “see the light” in 2019. For now, we’re just looking forward to seeing and hearing the IE in action.
