Revision as of 12:10, November 4, 2018

The Apollo Intensa Emozione (abbreviated as Apollo IE or AIE) is a hypercar produced by German automaker Apollo Automobil GmbH. It is the successor to the Gumpert Apollo.

Description

Apollo came out with a teaser video for the Intensa Emozione on October 17, 2017. The car was then fully revealed on October 24, 2017. The Intensa Emozione is built in collaboration with Manifattura Automobili Torino and Autotecnica Motori, with HWA AG completing the final stages of development.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione uses the Ferrari F12berlinetta's 6.3 L (6,262 cc) F140 FC naturally-aspirated V12 engine. The engine has been slightly modified with a new ECU software, a new custom intake and a new exhaust system developed by Autotecnica Motori. The engine now produces 780 hp (582 kW) at 8,500 rpm and 561 ft·lb (760 N·m) of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine reportedly has a redline of 9,000 rpm. All of the power is sent to the wheels through a 6-speed Hewland sequential manual transmission. The weight stands at 2755 lb (1250 kg).

The dampers are built by Bilstein, and are three-way adjustable (comfort, sport, auto). The car utilises Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with sizes 380 x 34 mm at the front and rear along with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston callipers at the rear. Michelin supplies their Sport Cup 2 high performance tires for the cars, to allow for maximum performance and grip. Pankl Racing Systems is the supplier for the differential.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione is capable of 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, with a projected top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h). The car produces a maximum downforce of 1,350 kg (2,976 lb) at 186 mph (300 km/h).

The car is made almost entirely out of carbon fiber, but it does include high-strength steel, aluminum, and titanium components. The engine bay is left uncovered to allow the air intake to take in maximum efficiency and performance. The monocoque itself weighs only 105 kg (231 lb).

The Apollo Intensa Emozione will be sold for $2,670,000 in the United States, and €2,300,000 in Europe. Only ten units will be produced, all of which have been reportedly sold.

Summary

File:AIE stats (MP 2).png

The Apollo Intensa Emozione was added to the game during the 2018 Spring Update as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:

Performance

Main article: Apollo Intensa Emozione/Performance

The Apollo Intensa Emozione has a performance map based on those of the Ferrari 330 P4 and Aston Martin Vulcan, but with a stronger emphasis on raw top speed like the former and overall handling like the latter. Reaching a maximum real total speed of 316.8 MPH/510.1 km/h at MAX+PRO with Tuning Kit activated, the Apollo IE is the fifth-fastest car in the game, tied with the 2018 McLaren X2. Compared to the AM Vulcan, the Apollo IE has faster overall acceleration, reaching its aforementioned total speed in 2.8 seconds (with Level 3 Nitro activated). In addition, the Apollo IE, having a lower overall weight rating, has better overall handling and drifting, although its drift radius is so sharp to the point of oversteer and skidding being possible, which are the two of the Apollo IE's only disadvantages so far. The Apollo IE, with its nitro efficiency combo of 6/11/13, makes it more efficient at Level 3 (triple-tap) nitro but slightly less efficient at Level 2/Perfect Nitro. These effects are most noticeable with Extra Tank, although the Apollo IE has a higher raw top speed and faster acceleration to compensate for this. With its statistics considered, the Apollo IE is the second best car in the game, ahead of the AM Vulcan and behind the McLaren X2. With the Halloween Update, the IE is now safer and more stable to drive than before.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione's closest competitors are the 2018 McLaren X2 (acceleration-biased), AM Vulcan (balanced), Arrinera Hussarya GT (balanced), McLaren MP4-31 (acceleration-biased), and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 (acceleration-biased). The McLaren vehicles accelerate quicker than the Apollo IE but suffer from a range of downsides, including worse nitro efficiency, lower top speed, and a very high tendency to skid due to their extreme handling, although the tendency to skid has been mostly eliminated with the Halloween Update. Aside from these vehicles, the Apollo IE also faces minor competition from the Lamborghini Aventador SV (semi-balanced), Ferrari 488 Pista (semi-speed-biased), and TRION NEMESIS (acceleration-biased). At lower ranks, the Apollo IE faces additional competition from the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS (speed-biased), SIN R1 (balanced), Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition (balanced), Porsche Carrera GT (speed-biased), Rezvani Beast Alpha (acceleration-biased), and BMW M2 Special Edition (semi-balanced).

Official review

This is the official review of the Apollo Intensa Emozione on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by ASL Tae Hwan Kim and published on May 9, 2018:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 6.798s

Perfect nitro duration: 9.636s

Triple nitro duration: 7.788s

French Guiana lap time: 53.559s

Final verdict: "This car is such an amazing machine. Its stats are awesome and flawless, so it can act well with both MAXPRO tune and MP tune. Without a doubt, the Apollo Intensa Emozione is the new king of Asphalt 8."

Usage

Multiplayer

The Apollo IE starts at a rank 180 points higher than the Vulcan, but is slightly faster at MAX+PRO due to a higher top speed. Besides, it features a highly efficient ratio of top speed gain over rank cost, as the stock top speed can be increased by up to 106 km/h for only 154 points added to rank. (As of the 2018 Spring Update, this efficiency is second only to the Kawasaki Ninja H2R's stellar +102 km/h over +123 rank).

This makes the Apollo IE virtually dominant above rank 1600, where it can defeat similarly ranked Vulcans, Hussarya GT's, SIN R1's, MP4-25's, M-B SLK SE's, Hommages, Corvette GS's, Camaro SS's, Aventador SV's, R8 SE's, and Porsche 918 Spyders, assuming equal driver skill. Between ranks 1550-1600, where it is still competitive but not optimal, it competes against Hommages, R8 SE's, SLK SE's, Vulcans, Camaro SS's, and SIN R1's. Below 1550, it loses its usefulness and falls prey to SLK SEs and R8 e-tron SEs; the Apollo cannot be obtained at this rank without spending tokens.

Some useful non-MAX+PRO Multiplayer tunings include:

  • 0503 5050 (Rank 1590): Real speed= 493.4 km/h, Displayed speed= 490.3 km/h (This is the absolute lowest tuning at which the Final AI may be beaten.)
  • 0504 5050 (Rank 1610): Real speed= 497.3 km/h, Displayed speed= 494.2 km/h
  • 0505 5050 (Rank 1634): Real speed= 500.8 km/h, Displayed speed= 497.7 km/h
  • 3505 5053 (Rank 1677): Real speed= 503.1 km/h, Displayed speed= 499.9 km/h
  • 4504 5055 (Rank 1684): Real speed= 501.9 km/h, Displayed speed= 498.8 km/h
  • 3505 5055 (Rank 1695): Real speed= 505.5 km/h, Displayed speed= 502.3 km/h
  • 5505 5555 (Rank 1761): Real speed= 510.1 km/h, Displayed speed= 506.9 km/h 

Other popular Multiplayer tunings are usually variants of these, with the difference being slightly different levels of acceleration, suspension, and/or exhaust (i.e. 4504 5154 Rank 1679).

Other

Main article: Car Mastery/Apollo Intensa Emozione

The Apollo Intensa Emozione's Car Mastery awards a total of A8 tokens full 400, 2 Blueprint boxes, and Licenses full a8 72.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione is also usable for A8 credits small grinding. While its 15th Mastery Challenge isn't as profitable as the McLaren MP4-31's, the simple layout and lack of traffic in French Guiana make the Flawless race less prone to disqualifications from wrecks than the ramp-and-traffic-infested layout of Dubai.

Price

AIE IAP Price

The Apollo Intensa Emozione cannot be purchased with credits or tokens nor built with Blueprints; it can only be obtained through the completion of its R&D event. The Intensa Emozione also has a hidden purchase price of A8 tokens full 20,000, making it the second most expensive car in the game to purchase (only the premium 2015 GTA Spano is more expensive).

The Apollo Intensa Emozione was available between July 4-8, 2018 as an in-app purchase for $100 USD.

The Apollo Intensa Emozione is one of several vehicles in the game that require A8 tokens full-only upgrades. It costs A8 credits small 1,567,150 and A8 tokens full 13,695 to MAX out. Pro Kits require A8 credits small 2,197,525, 27 of each Class S part card, 56 Mid-Tech, 28 Advanced Tech, and 48 V12 Engine cards.

Worthiness

The Apollo Intensa Emozione stands as one of the best Class S vehicles, behind only the McLaren X2. Its performance allows it to dominate any track in any mode. In addition, its various rewards in Car Mastery, as well as its 15th Car Mastery Challenge being suitable for grinding Credits, gives more worth to the Apollo IE.

Its only drawbacks are its restrictive availability and steep upgrade costs. As previously mentioned, the IE can only be obtained through its R&D event or by way of $100 USD in-app purchase. With its steep upgrade costs and restrictive availability considered, the AM Vulcan, while also having a steep purchase price of A8 tokens full 14,250, still has similar performance with a trade-off of being normally available anytime, lacking A8 tokens full-only upgrades, and requiring only 32 V12 Engines.
