The car really stands up to its name “Intensa Emozione” meaning “Intense”!
The organization behind the Gumpert Apollo is back, this time with another name and another car. Called the Apollo Intensa Emozione, meaning exceptional feeling, this is an outrageous, track-centered hypercar with a 780 horsepower V12 motor. Serious might be a touch of a modest representation of the truth. Apollo has just said it supposes present day supercars are too simple to drive and that the Intensa Emozione would drive more like a GT1 race car from the 1990s.
We’ve effectively heard how great the Apollo IE’s V12 sounds, however that test was performed beneath 4,000 rpm. At the 2018 Supercar Owners Club end of the week in Switzerland, Apollo drew out the IE and let it rundown the drag strip, demonstrating to us how great it truly sounds. The car’s 6.3-liter V12 sounds like a fire-breathing creature, and pops, dissimilar to anything we’ve heard previously. All things considered, it sounds like the driver wasn’t going at full throttle, so there might be considerably more to extricate from this stunning car when it hits redline.
The motor is obtained from a Ferrari F12Berlinetta and revs to 9,000 rpm, so it doesn’t stun us with how great it sounds. Power is sent to the back wheels through a six-speed successive gearbox, considering a 0-60 mph time of only 2.7 seconds. Lamentably, the car costs $2.7 million and just ten will be fabricated, so the odds of hearing one in person will be extremely thin.
