News Apollo IE hypercar sold out!

Apollo IE hypercar sold out!

With the amount of money super-rich car collectors have lying about, the ink on the documentation giving life to Apollo, ex-Gumpert, was scarcely dry that whatever they were going to build was already sold.

To be fair, only 10 of Apollo’s IE, both street and track versions, will be assembled, at least in the first round. While we don’t know if there will be a second round, a waiting list of more potential customers is being compiled.

Why all the enthusiasm? This is one serious piece of automobile.

Apollo is in the midst of assessing and further development of their IE. They are putting to the test what they say to be an overengineered car in every considerable way. For example, the front splitter on the race car can sustain nearly 3,000 pounds of downforce and the naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 is tuned mildly at 780-horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque. With little effort, the engine could sustain a 16.5:1 compression ratio, rev to 11,000 rpm and produce more than 1,000 horsepower.

The car retailed for $2.71 million and will be delivered some time in 2019.
