apollo ascending

Restricted to a limited run of 10 units, the Apollo Intensa Emozione is an example of a highly anticipated car coming not from monstrous companies with historical legacies (think Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche) but from smaller bespoke auto builders like the Germany-based Apollo, which was formed when custom-supercar maker Gumpert was acquired by a Hong Kong investor in 2014. The IE is a masterwork in weight reduction. Apollo uses the latest in advanced technologies and materials to minimize weight; the result is a carbon-fiber chassis that allows for incredible torsional rigidity. It features a monocoque for safety—also made from carbon fiber—which is similar to those found in Formula 1 cars. The entire chassis weighs just 231 pounds. All 10 units are spoken for, at a price of $2.85 million each. The IE’s design…

The McLaren Senna For all the work McLaren Automotive has done in recent years to climb the supercar hierarchy, its reputation is still based on its success on the track. Worldwide, the brand is associated not only with Formula 1 but also the most celebrated driver of modern times, the late Ayrton Senna. So it’s natural that the British automaker’s most performance-obsessed supercar is named after the Brazilian Formula I icon. The McLaren Senna is an evolution of the groundbreaking 720S, starting with the Monocage III, a modified take on the company’s carbon-fiber monocoque, which provides immense strength and rigidity despite its minimal weight. Each of the 500 vehicles will be given an upgraded iteration of the 720S’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, tweaked to produce 789 horsepower, with all its power sent to…

dive time

From sailing watches to diving watches, the world’s finest timepieces have long been designed with the ocean in mind. Two of the most striking recent examples include these options from Audemars Piguet and Breguet, each of which is capable of tackling the sea’s most difficult conditions. Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon GMT ($173,700) features an asymmetrical design inspired by contemporary architecture. Ensconced in a sandblasted titanium case, with glare-proof sapphire crystal and a black ceramic bezel, the Royal Oak includes a fully visible flying tourbillon and can descend to depths of 100 meters. Breguet’s Marine Royale 5847 alarm wristwatch ($46,300) is made from 18-karat rose gold, with a rose gold–gilded dial hand-engraved onto a rose engine. Able to withstand pressure down to 300 meters, the watch’s self-winding movement supplements the…

big bidders

As car collectors seek out ever more exotic vehicles, auction houses like RM Sotheby’s have grown to fill the demand, offering more than a dozen specialized auctions annually, in locales like Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Paris, and Monte Carlo. High-end automotive sales at auction see hundreds of millions of dollars change hands, as vehicles ranging from early Ford Model Ts to the most recent European hypercars roll across the block. But the smart collectors, and even the speculators who follow auctions more in search of value and profit than out of a passion for cars, know that each vehicle up for bid is more than a status symbol—it’s an investment. Navigating this world can be confounding, so Maxim spoke exclusively with an RM Sotheby’s car specialist, Alexander Weaver, about recent results,…

You might not recognize his name, but you’ve seen his face—or versions of it, at least. In movies like American Hustle, A Most Violent Year, Selma, and HBO’s The Wizard of Lies, Alessandro Nivola transforms seamlessly from role to role, playing a sleazy prosecutor with sideburns and slicked-back hair one moment, and Bernie Madoff’s suffering son Mark the next. This April, Nivola sports a full beard, glasses, and a yarmulke in the buzzed-about new film Disobedience. He plays Dovid Kuperman, a likable middle-aged rabbi in North London’s Hasidic community, who is grieving after his mentor dies. Matters get complicated when his mentor’s estranged daughter (Rachel Weisz) returns to their community, rocking his relationship with his wife (Rachel McAdams). The 45-year-old actor appreciates that he’s known for his talent as an on-camera changeling.…
