Look at those ’pex Meet the Lotus-bothering Apex AP-0
Penned by a pro
The new electric Apex AP-0 has been sculpted by Brit designer Guy Colborne, and draws on F1 and endurance racing aero. Colborne previously designed the Apex AP-1, an evolution of the Elemental RP1.
A 90kWh battery pack is split between the front and rear and provides up to 320 miles of range. Outputs of 650bhp and 427lb ft are claimed, with a 2.3sec 0-62mph sprint and a top speed of 190mph.
The magic number
Although its main focus may be trackdays, Apex claims the AP-0 is capable of Level 3 autonomy (able to drive itself in certain situations). A massive lidar system housed in the roof enables a suite of safety tech.
Pushrod suspension with automatic ride-height adjustment sits within a carbon body. Apex promises an augmented-reality display to help trackday novices learn new circuits and ‘gamify’ their experiences.
