Apollo IE is a bonkers small-batch hypercar

It provides a solid mix of old-school hustle and new-school chassis tech.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione (IE for short) aims to blend the old and new schools of supercar building.

The car's old-school credentials come from its engine -- a 6.3-liter, naturally aspirated V-12 that's capable of revving to 9,000 rpm.

It comes mated to a six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters.

Thanks to some special Michelin rubber, Apollo claims the IE can corner in excess of 2 G's, which is bonkers.

Apollo claims the design is meant to use the air to its benefit, with a claimed 2,976 pounds of downforce at 186 mph.

Other than all the aerodynamic trickery, all of its new-school benefits are integrated into the chassis.

The unibody itself is made entirely of carbon fiber, as are its subframes.

These three components weigh just 231 pounds.

In order to keep the car as exclusive as possible, Apollo will build just 10 examples of the IE.

With a starting price of 2.3 million euros ($2.67 million), it's not like there will be a big line to scoop one up.
