  • The Apollo Intensa Emozione

    Apollo, the supercar startup born from the ashes of Gumpert, is finally ready to build its first car: the Intensa Emozione. The company announced Tuesday that it has partnered with HWA to build the supercar and also detailed some major changes since 2017's reveal. We previously reported the company planned to build just 10 cars, and that figure appears unchanged per the Tuesday announcement. The car, in general, has been developed with HWA and Capricorn Group. The former helped build the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR; the latter produced monocoques and chassis for race cars such as the Porsche 919...

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. And stomping the throttle reveals a rip-snorting pitch fit for cars only like the Intensa Emozione, or IE for short. The supercar's sound comes from a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 with an output limited to 780 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. The figures are more than enough to pull off...
