About three years ago, Apex Motors unveiled the AP-0 concept vehicle and made a promise that it will eventually give birth to a groundbreaking production model. Nonetheless, despite plans to initially begin production in the fourth quarter of 2022, it is still considered to be vaporware at this point.
While the company has, for the most part, maintained a policy of radio silence, it appears that they have emerged from their slumber and will, according to recent reports, demonstrate the concept in the United States on March 5th.
According to Fox News, the aspiring automobile manufacturer has also linked up with the rapper Wyclef Jean. The journal did not go into detail, but it did mention a press release in which Jean was quoted as claiming that he worked to guarantee that the vehicle has a “improved music and sound experience.” The automobile also makes the claim that it will assess the mood of the driver and play music that “best fits the mood for [an] optimal driving experience.”
Apex told the publication that the AP-0 will be built in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, Florida, in partnership with the owner of Supercar Rooms Miami. The original plan called for production to take place in the United Kingdom in the previous year; however, Apex recently announced that production will instead take place in Miami. Late in the year 2024 is when production is expected to get underway, and the estimated starting price is 350 thousαnd dollars (or 290 805 pounds).
If everything goes according to plan, the AP-0 will be delivered about two years later than anticipated and will have an increased price of $169,475 (£140,812) compared to the initial price estimate of £150,000 (£180,525) It is a significant rise in cost, and it is still unknown whether or not the automobile will be manufactured this time around. Production of the vehicle has been delayed numerous times.
Nonetheless, the AP-0 was supposed to come equipped with a battery pack that had a capacity of 90 kWh, as well as a rear-mounted motor that was capable of delivering 650 horsepower (484 kW / 649 PS) and 427 pound-feet of torque (580 Nm). Apex asserted that this would allow the vehicle to achieve an acceleration of 0-62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.3 seconds, reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour (306 kilometers per hour), and have a WLTP range of up to 320 miles (515 km).
Celebrate The Iconic Miura With This 1-Of-50 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Miura Homage
The Lamborghini Miura, frequently referred to as the most beautiful car ever, was legendary in its day and has only grown more so with time. As a result, the company decided to create an homage based on the Aventador in 2016 to honor the legacy of the vehicle.
The classic color scheme of the mid-engine supercar was modeled after those available for the Miura, and it had contrasting wheels and rocker panels. This 2017 example uses the slightly less retro but no less attractive contrast of black paint with gold, and it is currently available for purchαse.
The Aventador LP700-4 Miura 50 Homage Edition, one of just 50 ever produced, is propelled by Lamborghini’s reliable 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated V12, which generates 691 horsepower (515 kW/700 PS) and 507 lb-ft (687 Nm) of torque, or nearly twice as much power as the original Miura P400. ISR automated manual transmission with seven speeds distributes that power to all four wheels. The wheels in this case are made by App Tech, are 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the back, and have a gold finish to match the rocker panels. Each of them are mounted with 255/30 and 355/25 Pirelli P Zero tires.
All the technology you could desire from a Lamborghini is inside the vehicle, including heated, power-adjustable seats covered in Terra Emilia leather with “Miura 50” embroidered on the seatbacks. This particular model was sold to its present owner in 2020 after being delivered as a brand-new shipment to Gold Coast Exotic Imports in Chicago. Its 2,200 miles (3,540 km) are by no means a lot, but they are also not particularly low for a vehicle of this type.
Potential buyers have until March 9 at 4:53 p.m. (Eastern time) to submit a bid for this piece of Lamborghini history that is up for sale on Bring a Trailer.
