The IE in Apollo IE stands for Intensa Emozione, meaning intense emotion, and the hyper-car was designed with high-functionality and radical style in mind. Apollo IE was developed in partnership with HWA AG, the motorsport specialist responsible for the legendary Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR. The new chassis was co-developed by Apollo, HWA AG, and Capricorn Group.

By using advanced technologies and composite materials, designers created a first of its kind bespoke, all-carbon-fiber chassis consisting not only of the monocoque, but subframes and crash structures. The new chassis meets and exceeds FIA LMP2 (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile or International Automobile Federation Le Mans Prototype 2) safety requirements and features a carbon mono-cell, providing the driver protection without the requirement for a roll-cage. The chassis is hand-built using a high-quality prepreg-autoclave and advanced carbon fiber technology.  Additionally, the fuel cell resides in a carbon/Kevlar safety cell integrated into the monocoque, ensuring the protection of the fuel cell in the event of an impact.

The Apollo IE boasts a maximum speed of 335 kph (kilometers per hour) and accelerates from 0-100 kilometers in 2.7 seconds. The engine is a V12 – 6,300 cc with 780 horsepower. The curb weight of the vehicle is 1,250 kilograms.

Design aspects include a high-efficiency spoon rear wing connected to the air scoop through a whale tail carbon-fiber structure. Inside the vehicle, the seating features carbon fiber shells and the steering wheel is also covered in carbon fiber.

“The Apollo IE is our passion project.  Our favorite days were the GT1 days of the 90’s and we felt analog cars of this nature would never be produced again so we pursued our vision and in complete secrecy, we designed and built the car of our dreams to pay a modern tribute to this era and most notably, the CLK-GTR, the most successful GT1 car of all-time. In the relentless pursuit of perfection, we took it a step further and created a strategic technical partnership with HWA AG,” said Apollo Chairman Norman Choi.

The company plans to build only 10 Apollo IE vehicles, and each will be customized at the owner’s request. IE owners will also be invited to join Team Apollo at private testing sessions.

Affordable Chinese business lawyer for NNN and other contracts?

Hello! Can anyone recommend a good law firm in China with reasonable rates? The international law firms I've spoken to have been extremely expensive. I've read that it's not a good idea to just use a template, but this is my first product and I'm trying not to spend five figures on lawyers up front.

I am looking for an NNN, mold development contract, and a manufacturing agreement.
