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. Gumpert flagship hyper-car that represents the ethos of the brand. 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. From the beginning, Gumpert team set out to build a car that is lightweight, aerodynamically efficient and connected, but unimpeded by any emotionally dilutive technological systems. During the course of achieving this goal we poured in heart and soul, sweat and tears. The journey itself was intensely emotional. This is Intensa Emozione. This is the Apollo IE.
The 2019 Gumpert Apollo Intensa Emozione’s chassis consists of not only a carbon monocoque, but also incorporates carbon fibre front and rear subframes. This has allowed us to create more organic surfaces and a tighter packaging, which in return has a positive correlation to its robust aerodynamic efficiency. From the early stages of this project Gumpert knew that we wanted and needed to remain true to our core. We wanted to create a modern chassis for the next-generation. Utilizing advanced technologies and composite materials we were able to create a state of the art, bespoke, all-carbon fibre chassis which allows for maximum torsional rigidity, safety and the ability to create a lightweight and aerodynamically efficient shape. The entire chassis, including the monocoque, front and rear subframes has a total weight of a mere 105kg. Safety remains the utmost importance to us and with that in mind nothing was sacrificed. The Apollo IE features bespoke carbon fiber front crash structures, which up until today, have usually been reserved for only the pinnacle of motorsports such as Formula One.
The power and torque of the Apollo IE is transmitted through a longitudinal Hewland sequential 6-speed+Rev gearbox with fully interchangeable gear ratios. The gearbox is operated via electro-pneumatic paddle shifters that move with the steering wheel so the next gear is always within the driver’s reach. The powertrain is connected to the wheels by two superalloy lightweight semi-axles, designed by the Austrian specialist Pankl Racing Systems AG. The Apollo IE is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V12 engine. This ICE unit produces in excess of 780hp and 760Nm of torque. The power unit was developed in partnership with our partner, Autotecnica Motori, and revs to 9,000rpm. The IE features three engine Map-modes selected by the driver: Wet, Sport, Track – The selection is indicated on “Engine Map page” on main Display. The decision to refrain from using any emotionally dilutive technological systems, such as hybridization, was made to deliver a modern, yet nostalgically, pure, unadulterated sensory experience. Utilizing this solution allows for a strong, race-proven gearbox that provides significant weight savings over a dual-clutch unit and yet lightening fast gear changes.
One of the key distinctive features of the Apollo IE is its aerodynamic efficiency which allows it to achieve world-class performances and extreme levels of downforce that far surpasses other cars in its category. The IE has an aerodynamic efficiency in excess of 3, which places it closer to that of an LMP2 race car than a proper GT road car. Those who order the Apollo IE will be granted exclusive access to the Time Attack program, that will be run by Apollo on the most relevant European racing circuits, and will also gain priority rights to order the future sibling of the Apollo IE, the Arrow, which is scheduled to see the light in 2019. To maintain exclusivity, Gumpert will only build one sole batch of 10 units of the Apollo IE, each to the highest degree of customization requested by its owner. the company also offer a unique opportunity for clients to partake in the fine tuning development process of the IE and the development of the future Apollo cars from the beginning. IE owners will be invited to accompany Team Apollo to private testing sessions. This bespoke and personal experience allows IE owners to see what goes on behind the scenes during the development process of a new car and have the opportunity for their input play a role. A privilege only a select few in the world can claim.
