Apollo Intensa Emozione

ridiculous name, BDSM steering wheel
everything else though?






new owner scrapped the Gumpert chassis
exterior design was done by a pair of 20-something year olds

Quote:
Apollo moved forward by teaming up with Paolo Garella, the engineer whose recent works include Scuderica Cameron Clickenhaus' race chassis for the SCG 003. Based on what they've learnt from Glickenhaus' Nürburgring program, Garella's Manifattura Automobili Torino built an even tighter carbon fiber chassis, happy to be free from the packaging issues associated with forced-induction engines, but still challenged by the design team to fit both a V12 and a 26.4 gallon fuel cell, all without compromising balance.

The result is an all carbon chassis with a carbon monocoque, as well as carbon fiber front and rear subframes, plus crash structures that are neatly integrated into the exterior design. The chassis weighs just 231 lbs., allowing the Apollo IE to claim a curb weight figure of 2755 lbs., with a distribution of 45/55 per cent front and rear.

Supporting the action are Apollo's carbon ceramic Brembo brakes with 6-piston calipers at the front and four-pistons at the rear, barely hidden behind forged aluminum BBS rims.

Tuned to produce 780 horsepower at 8500 rpm and 560 foot pounds of torque at 6000 rpm, Apollo's 6.3 V12 is a variety of the Ferrari F12's engine, with new software, plus a custom intake and exhaust system developed by Autotecnica Motori in Italy. It revs to 9000, while the tach goes to 11.


The V12 uses a paddle-shift operated Hewland 6-speed race gearbox.

You don't wash your own car you hire someone/team to detail your car with a q-tip.

^ 138 hours of detailing job costs more than the average new car on the road

if this is not street legal, does it need to go through any sort of crash testing?

If it's not street legal I don't think crash testing has to be done. Also, they can now do crash test simulations on a computer.

If your car is worth millions spending 10 to 15 thousand or more to detail it is not a big deal.
