Apollo Intensa Emozione

The Apollo Intensa Emozione, sometimes referred as the IE, is a mid-engine sports car manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Apollo Automobil GmbH, in partership with Manifattura Automobili Torino, designed by their chief designer Joe Wang. The name itself means 'intense emotion' in Italian.

This is the first vehicle made by Apollo since the Gumpert Apollo that went into production 14 years before.

Apollo came out with a teaser video for the Intensa Emozione on October 17, 2017 and the car was fully revealed on October 24, 2017.

The Intensa Emozione will be sold for $ 2,670,000 in the United States, and €2,300,000 in Europe. Only ten will be produced, all of which have been reportedly sold.

In June 2018 it was revealed that Apollo would be partnering with HWA AG, a tuning and racing team spin-off from Mercedes-Benz tuner AMG, to complete the final stage of development for the car.

The exterior design is based on airflow and nature, insects and marine animals in particular. The interior is based entirely on the nature theme, with a cocoon-style carbon fiber tub cockpit, in the style of a leather-wrapped prototype race car. Apart from the natural thought, the car was also intended to have a design that would stand out from all other sports cars.

The Intensa Emozione uses a Ferrari derived 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated F140FE V12 developed by Autotecnica Motori and HWA AG. It is rated approximately 791 PS (582 kW; 780 hp) at 8,500 rpm and around 760 N⋅m (561 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine reportedly has a redline of 9,000 rpm. All of the power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed Hewland sequential manual transmission. The weight stands at 1,250 kg (2,755 lb).

The dampers are built by Bilstein, and are three-way adjustable (comfort, sport, auto). The car utilises Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with sizes 380 x 34 mm at the front and rear along with 6-piston callipers up front and 4-piston callipers at the rear. Michelin supplies their Sport Cup 2 high performance tires for the cars, to allow for maximum performance and grip. Pankl Racing Systems is the supplier for the differential.

The Intensa Emozione is capable of accelerating from 0–97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.7 seconds, with a projected top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph). The car produces a maximum downforce of 1,350 kg (2,976 lb) at 299 km/h (186 mph).
