In 1959, Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica was born in Turin, Italy. The company was founded by Frank Reisner and originally provided tuning kits before venturing into the racing community in the early 1960s. A few years later, the 1962 Intermeccanica Apollo GT, second of its production run, was released in small numbers to a similarly small collection of buyers. Because of its complex manufacturing process and steep price, the 1962 Intermeccanica Apollo GT was necessarily scarce in quantity. Its body/chassis was produced in Italy before being shipped to California for the addition of a powertrain. Resulting from this two-part manufacture was a dynamic sports car with decidedly European cosmetics and American muscularity. The 1962 Intermeccanica Apollo GT was a car all its own.
In addition to its attractive appearance and sporty handling, the Apollo GT was also a thundering cannon under its lengthy hood. A 215 cubic inch, 3.5-liter, V-8 engine, had the Apollo roaring down highways with 145 horsepower. This was a lot of strength for a relatively light car, and the effect was one of combining elements of muscle car might with sports car drivability and feel. A step up from this was the alternate 300 cubic inch, 4.9-liter V-8 that added around 60 horsepower to the equation. That Apollo GT variant is essentially a missile on wheels and possesses enough power to seem consistent with present day sports car standards. Testing that theory may be as simple as getting in contact with a skilled and experienced dealer.
