  • Apollo gives us a quick glimpse of test footage of its Intensa Emozione

Normally, any test footage released to the public is glossy, heavily produced content designed to only show the positive side of vehicle testing. Apollo has decided to release a quick bit of raw footage showing that testing has its negatives too. Accompanied by a bit of text...
