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.
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 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 Apollo missions are NASA’s gift that just keeps on giving. America’s civilian space agency just released a veritable treasure trove of high resolution scanned images from the Apollo archives, many of which have never been seen before. Below are a few highlights of these incredible moments in human history.
Special edition cars are often just motorized platforms to test the limits of human eye-rolling. There’s something about those Harley Davidson-edition F150s or the Fiat 500 Gucci cars that just feels like shameless brand-whoring. But not this one. Not these Mustangs made to honor the Apollo moon missions. These are…
First of all, I should preface this by saying I’m no rocket scientist. Anyone who has ever seen me attempt to open a carton of milk can attest to this. But that doesn’t mean I can’t daydream. And today I’m daydreaming about how China could land on the moon as quickly and cheaply as possible. Within five years, let’s…
Yesterday was the 44th anniversary of the first time humans set foot upon the Moon, when the Lunar Module of Apollo 11 landed on July 20th, 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took plenty of stunning photos, and here are a few shots from angles you may not have seen before.
Gumpert has announced they will premiere two new versions of their always insane Apollo at this week's Geneva Motor Show—an 860 horsepower Apollo R and the Apollo Enraged. We believe this is a picture of the latter version being unloaded at the Palexpo in Geneva.
New photos released by NASA today are the sharpest ever taken of the Apollo landing sites on the moon, showing the parked lunar rover and the tracks it made. It even shows the research equipment and the footpaths of Apollo astronauts four decades on. Any doubters left?
Formula 1 driver Adrian Sutil was apparently behind the wheel of this Gumpert Apollo when it took the route less traveled around part of the Nürburgring. Yep, carbon fiber crash protection system works. Hat tip to Kozak & Kai!
Malaise Novas have become pretty rare, and the badge-engineered Buick version has nearly disappeared from the earth. Here's one I found at a local self-service wrecking yard.
The truly mean Gumpert Apollo Sport has powered its way to a Nürburgring lap time of 7:11.57, simultaneously setting the fastest lap for a production road-legal car and embarrassing the competition.
Today, forty years ago, mankind took a giant leap and stepped foot on the surface of our moon. It's a perfect time to celebrate with a look back at the Apollo 11 mission.
If expensive supercars and gold paint jobs aren't unique enough for you, Eng-i-Creation can whip up a one-off silver and gold embellished custom folding key-fob for only about $7,000.
XKCD issue #562 depicts a scene dear to everyone’s heart who has ever witnessed a moron fail egregiously at parking. Let’s advance the idea and move from blowtorches to rotary cannons.
