After taking a very first look at the brand new Apollo IE last year, we rejoin the car to bare witness to it on the roads! Driving to Cars & Coffee Brescia in my AMG GT R, we're convoying with the truly special machine. With just 10 to be made at a price tag of €2.3m, this prototype is a priceless hypercar but the very best bit has to be taking in the noise of that glorious naturally aspirated V12, just take it in as we go for the drive!
Cars and Coffee Brescia never fails to be an epic event, and this year was absolutely no different. Despite the wet weather, the hypercars turned out in force with highlights including: Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, Koenigsegg CCX Edition, Pagani Huayra BC, Huayra Roadster, Bugatti Veyron, EB110, Porsche Carrera GT, Gumpert Apollo, Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Miura, and so, so, so many more supercars.
The Apollo IE must be the star of the show though, the radical design inspired by nature and insects, the finish in purple carbon fibre with gold wheels, and the engine that bellows out with V12 glory. With almost 800 horsepower and weighing just 1,250kg, combined with downforce of 1,350kg, this thing is quite literally an alien UFO that's found itself on our planet.
Thanks for watching, Tim
