The lightweight EV is inspired by the race track but is completely road legal, combining futuristic aerodynamics with electric power for a contemporary supercar vision that is aimed to further connect the driver with their car. It is made from a carbon-fiber tub with modular spaceframes and a rigidity-enhancing center spine, making the AP-o light and strong, as well as a host of carbon-fiber body panels that tightly wrap around the tub.
APEX designed the car with aerodynamics in mind, making the front end angular and technical to channel air under the wheels, underneath the body and out the rear via the large diffuser. Its floor-mounted 90kW battery makes for a low center of gravity, as a result increasing the AP-o’s handling capabilities.
The battery itself is good for 650 BHP, 580Nm of torque and a top speed of 190 MPH. The battery and body combined only weighs 1,200kg, meaning the AP-0 can be launched from 0-60 MPH in just 2.3 seconds. APEX says that its EV will have a total range of 320 miles.
Take a look at the APEX AP-0 in the gallery above, and expect the EV to start production in Q4 2022. It will cost from £150,000 GBP (approx. $184,000 USD).
