Musician Wyclef Jean reveals Attucks Apex AP0 electrical supercar

Wyclef Jean, the Haitian-born entrepreneur and entertainer greatest identified for his hip hop musical forays each solo and with The Fugees, has launched a brand new automotive firm. The primary machine that Wyclef unveiled to the plenty at The Amelia in Florida and to his 2.2 million followers in Instagram known as the Attucks Apex AP0 electrical supercar.

Now that you’ve got seen the automobile and heard the rap, let’s take a better have a look at what makes the Attucks Apex AP0 tick, beginning with the identify. The corporate’s identify comes from Crispus Attucks, a Black man who was killed by British troops on the Boston Bloodbath, often called begin of the American Revolutionary Conflict. As for the numbers, the AP0 has a claimed prime pace of 190 miles per hour and is reportedly able to operating from 0-60 in a scant 2.3 seconds. Energy comes from an electrical motor on the rear that spins out 650 horsepower and 580 Nm (428 pound-feet) of torque. Energy comes from a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery pack of unknown origin. Whereas there are an amazing many electrical automobiles with a way more highly effective motors, the AP0’s efficiency claims are buoyed by a claimed weight of 1,200 kilograms (lower than 2,650 kilos), made potential by a “monocoque carbon chassis, with a modular spaceframe and a central backbone for optimum rigidity.” Considerably stunning is the value, however as a result of in a world of multimillion greenback tremendous automobiles, it has a relatively cut price steered worth of $350,000.

Attucks claims the Apex AP0 is the lightest electrical supercar in existence. It actually does look comparatively diminutive in photos. To place its claimed weight into perspective, the Rimac Nevera weighs in at 4,740 kilos — making it greater than twice that of the Apex AP0 — and will get its driving force from a 1,914-hp electrical drivetrain fed by a 120-kWh battery pack. Even the Lotus Evija, from an organization traditionally obsessive about weight, is available in round 3,700 kilos. After all, the Nevera and Evija value a pair million {dollars}, too. We’re unsure how Attucks was capable of stealthily engineer such a light-weight electrical supercar or the way it may promote such a machine for such a relatively cheap sum, however we actually anticipate finding out extra.

In keeping with the press launch saying this new enterprise, “Attucks’ future and expertise is a platform to voice and create desires in the neighborhood, headquartered in Little Haiti, Miami.” It continues, “This platform shall be liable for discovering, grooming, and growing expertise, beginning with innovations, technological options, sustainability, creativity and design, coding, and web3.” We’re unsure how the corporate’s platform will translate into future merchandise just like the AP0, so like we mentioned within the earlier paragraph, we’ll positively keep tuned.
