The Apollo IE hypercar will be revealed in London on July 28.
Earlier this week, Apollo released a tantalizing teaser of its new upcoming hypercar. Called the IE, it’s the first car to be put into production by the automaker since Gumpert was taken over by Hong Kong-based investment fund Ideal Team Venture. We suspected it wouldn’t be long until more would be revealed. Just days after the teaser, Motor1 has been sent a leaked official image of the Apollo IE from an anonymous source ahead of its reveal, giving us a better idea of how the hardcore hypercar will look.
Whereas the teaser image focused on the car’s rear to show off its massive curved carbon fiber wing, the leaked image gives us a clear look at the Apollo IE’s imposing front end. Boasting a bare carbon fiber body, a prominent front splitter, massive air vents, and a roof scoop, the Apollo IE looks absurdly aggressive. Its design is reminiscent of the Apollo Arrow concept car revealed at last year’s Geneva Motor Show. Set to be built in Italy, the track-only hypercar, codenamed Titan, is being developed by Manifattura Automobili Tornio and will be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 that produces 800 horsepower. A road-legal variant known as the Apollo S will follow, packing a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 1,000 hp.
Going by the teaser and leaked image, you would assume that a full reveal of the Apollo IE is imminent – and you’d be right. We reached out to Apollo, and a representative confirmed that the Apollo IE will be revealed at an event in London on July 28, so there’s not long to wait.
