The Apollo IE marks the return to the truest, most organic form of the hyper-car. Created from a blank sheet of paper, the IE is the beginning of the next chapter of Apollo. This is their flagship hyper-car that represents the ethos of the brand. From the beginning, the Apollo team set out to build a car that is lightweight, aerodynamically efficient and connected, but unimpeded by any emotionally dilutive technological systems.
The journey itself was intensely emotional. The IE is a superleggera that combines the aerodynamic efficiency and mechanical grip of a modern GT1/GT3/ LMP race car with the classical thrill of a high-revving naturally aspirated V12. This car has an organic granularity that other modern hyper-cars strive for, but are unable to deliver. All this while featuring a modern, intensively striking design language that symbolizes the brand.
This is a car that captures the lost emotion and fading spirit of the cars we grow up loving. A car with its own soul. A car that provides the driver with modern, yet nostalgically pure, unadulterated sensory experience.
The Apollo IE embarks on a new chapter to ground an intensively striking design language that symbolizes the brand. Pushing the boundaries of design, engineering and extensive applications of exotic materials.
The IE’s radical body surfaces are sculpted for tremendous efficiency and highly optimized functionality, reflecting and inspired by tactile fighter jets to apex predators such as sharks and raptors. The body of the IE narrates the language of the movement of airflow. The idea of the IE is to pierce through and manipulate the air around and also through the vehicle.
The convergence of the body panels illustrates radical depth of surfaces and stunning continuity of the body lines. A narrow teardrop shaped glass house allows the IE to achieve its stunning, bold and balanced proportions. Acuate creases and exposed wheels facilitates precise streamlining of airflow whilst resulting in a lightweight appearance grounded by powerful stance. Structural supports such as the rear spine and wing mounts are designed in order to achieve and sustain over 1350 kgs of downforce.
Every part of the Apollo IE is designed for highly functional purposes with a radical approach on style. Prominent elements such as the striking shark like nose, distinctive side aero fins, large angled wing mounts and the trident exhausts, make it instantly recognizable as an Apollo.
