It’s called the Apollo Intensa Emozione ML Chameleon Golden Dragon. Quite a mouthful eh? But for good reason.
For starters, Intensa Emozione means “intense emotions” and according to its owner whom we shall refrain to elaborate on, the one-of-a-kind bespoke hypercar carries a deeper meaning than its “intensa” given name.
“A Chameleon Golden Dragon is very flexible; able to change and adapt to the most challenging conditions of life. It is the most powerful dragon with leadership qualities & attitude yet it does not belittle others.”
“In fact, it encourages others to be even more successful than itself because it has no fear of losing. It teaches others and also learn from those that are wiser & knowledgeable than itself,” he added.
Details of the particular car is scarce, but we do know that the standard V12 model in itself, possesses “intensa” performance.
Under the carbon fibre body, is a naturally-aspirated 6.3-litre V12 with 780 hp, 760 Nm, a 6-speed sequential gearbox and a whole 12 different traction control settings to play with.
The most “intensa” car we’ve driven, the Ferrari 812 Superfast, also with a naturally-aspirated engine (6.5-litre) makes 800 hp and 718 Nm.
Unlike the Apollo IE as it’s more commonly referred to, which weighs just 1,250 kg, the Superfast tips the scale over 1,500 kg so you can only imagine what the performance is like with a better power-to-weight ratio.
“To maintain exclusivity, we will only build one sole batch of 10 units of the Apollo IE, each to the highest degree of customisation requested by its owner,” said the company.
