the AP-0 weighs a significantly lightweight 1200kg thanks to its carbonfibre tub. that uses modular spaceframes and a centre spine linking the front and rear. the bodyshell is wrapped around the tub and spine but still exposes the carbonfibre chassis.

a 90kwh battery pack mounted to the floor at the front and the back powers the motor to produce 650bhp. apex says 320 miles is available on a single charge and a ccs charger stacks up 80 per cent power in less than 15 minutes.

the AP-0 is capable of level 3 autonomy, which includes automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance. however, there are enough cameras and sensors to enable level 4 autonomy, which apex says is possible if ‘safely achievable’. it also has holographic augmented reality display and augmented reality race instructor helps drivers learn new race tracks.
