Apollo Intensa Emozione
Some boutique supercar companies make a name for themselves but fizzle out after a few years. A handful of those come back only to suffer the same fate once again. Apollo is a company reborn after the death of former carmaker Gumpert. With the Intensa Emozione hypercar, it appears the company might just have some staying power. The company is building 10 cars, and an Apollo spokesman confirmed to Motor Authority that all 10 build slots have been sold and there's a wait list. Apollo is looking to go racing as well. To that end, the automaker is offering race-spec cars among that run of ten...

Watch an Apollo Intensa Emozione do burnouts on the streets of Hong Kong
Apollo's utterly mad supercar, the Intensa Emozione, was recently filmed on the streets of Hong Kong where the driver decided a few quick burnouts were in order. It's also one of the few times we've heard the supercar running, and the closest we've gotten to hear the throttle mashed to the floor...Sean Szymkowski
The world is nearly ready to welcome another low-volume high-performance road rocket. This one comes to us from Apollo. It's called the Intensa Emozione, which is Italian for "intense emotion," a name entirely fitting as you'll soon discover in this video taken during a recent track day. You'll definitely run the gamut of your emotions if you ever get the chance to open the taps on the 6.3-liter V-12 engine mounted at the rear of the IE. It's making 780 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. And as this simple video shows, it's producing amazing sounds even at part throttle. Apollo is still...
