The De Tomaso P72's Copper Details Are Simply the Best

The De Tomaso P72's Copper Details Are Simply the Best

Thank God. Thank God and all the known and unknown car lords the new De Tomaso isn’t hideous, or worse, a crossover. No, the De Tomaso P72 is gorgeous, retro, petite and has a manual. Everything we could hope for. And its copper detailing is simply to die for.

The De Tomaso P72 Is a Stunning Throwback Supercar With a Manual Gearbox

De Tomaso, famed for making the Pantera, is back with the P72—an homage to 1960s prototypes with a modern twist. And like any good homage to old-school racers, it has a manual gearbox.

P72 is a limited run GT, only 72 will be built with a projected base price of EUR750,000 ($846,000). While the cars the inspired it were super hardcore racers, the P72 has been designed to be enjoyed by those...

De Tomaso Is Back and Promising a New Car Again

De Tomaso Is Back and Promising a New Car Again

De Tomaso has had it rough in the last 20 or so years. It’s gone through liquidation, a purchase and an attempt at a crossover (lol), another sale and a chairman’s arrest . But hopefully all that’s behind it, because the company’s Chinese owners now have promises of a new car.

Back in October, we reported that De Tomaso was a registered trademark in the UK. In 2014, it had been sold to a...

When Even a McLaren F1 Can't Steal the Show

When Even a McLaren F1 Can't Steal the Show

Seeing a McLaren F1, Porsche 993 911 GT1, Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR and Maserati MC12 outside of a museum is like seeing The Avengers just chilling out together. Just, wow. That’s pretty neat.

Of course the Bahrain International Circuit isn’t as casual as a shawarma joint, but still, this particular batch of hero cars a lot of us grew up worshiping is incredible to see in one place....

These Pictures of the Apollo IE Testing Make My Eyeballs Happy

These Pictures of the Apollo IE Testing Make My Eyeballs Happy

The Apollo IE is a gloriously silly car. Only ten will be built, each costs $2.7 million before options, and its naturally aspirated V12 can theoretically run at 1,000 horsepower.

The IE also looks unlike anything else out there . It’s all angles, vents, and anger. Frankly, the world needs more cars like it.

Recently, Apollo teamed up with HWA AG—the company responsible for most of Mercedes’...

Apollo Claims its V12 Can Do 11,000 RPM with More Compression Than God

Apollo Claims its V12 Can Do 11,000 RPM with More Compression Than God

Re-newcomer to the supercar game Apollo is making waves with the most angular supercar since the ‘70s, but what interests me is its heavily reworked Ferrari V12, good for a ton of horsepower and a ton of revs. But pay more, apparently, and you get more.

That’s the word from Apollo in a recent interview with friend of Jalopnik and regular contributor over here Alex Goy, presenting this time...

The $2.7 Million Apollo IE Is Going Rogue At The Geneva Auto Show

The $2.7 Million Apollo IE Is Going Rogue At The Geneva Auto Show

Apollo, the company intent on making a hypercar that’s both hugely powerful and delightfully old school , is in Geneva for the auto show. But it’s not actually in the show. Why? Apparently it wants people to see its car on the road, in real life.

The IE, short for Intensa Emozione because that’s what’ll happen when you drive it, is a pointy, shouty, angry V12 monster and if you’re into...

The $2.7 Million Apollo Intensa Emozione Is More Significant Than You Might Realize

The $2.7 Million Apollo Intensa Emozione Is More Significant Than You Might Realize

Did I trip over a frayed extension cord, die, and get uploaded into a heaven dreamed up by adrenaline-addled robots? Or are we all just going to accept that the Apollo Intensa Emozione is an actual car?

A $2.7 million asking price for a 6.3-liter V12 churning out 780 horsepower without the help of a turbocharger, supercharger, nitrous or fancy hybrid-electric system. And all that energy...

The Apollo Intensa Emozione Is A V12 Monster That Makes A Lamborghini Look Tame

The Apollo Intensa Emozione Is A V12 Monster That Makes A Lamborghini Look Tame

A new Apollo has been teased for some time now, with an announcement in October 2016 that something would be coming, before video of the new car was leaked to us earlier this month. Today, Apollo finally unveiled the new IE in all of its naturally aspirated glory, and it looks pretty sharp. Literally.

The IE stands for Intensa Emozione, Italian for, you guessed it, intense emotion. Apollo...

Here’s a teaser photo of the upcoming Apollo IE (pronounced, I think, as “eye-ee” and not “ee”). It will apparently have tons of carbon fiber, which we all know makes a car Very Fast! Consider me teased, tickled and thoughtful.

Recall that Apollo Automobil is what Gumpert GmbH became after it went bankrupt. The new company is now saying that we should expect something with a naturally...
