Its name is Italian for (surprise, surprise) “intense emotion”, so that should be a hint that this isn’t a car you’d take to the grocery store or a school run. It’s also US$2.7 million (approximately S$3.67 million), which is usually a price tag reserved for cars that either look extremely nice, or perform like a maniac. Alas, the brand new Apollo Intensa Emozione is the latter.
The new hypercar from Apollo Automobili is a limited edition of 10 examples set to pave the way for its future street-legal sibling, the Apollo Arrow, which was first launched as a concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Production dates for the Arrow are slated for 2019, but as with all exclusive car brands, Intensa Emozione owners will get priority for orders.
So, can you buy one? Sure, but you’ll have to be an extremely well-connected millionaire. Otherwise, just book a plane ticket down to Dubai and scour the high-rise parking complexes if you want to see one in the flesh.
Before you start looking for that cheque book, here’s all you need to know about the unhybridised, radical work of automobile art that is the Apollo Intensa Emozione.
