Remember the Japanese electric hypercar named Aspark Owl? It shocked everyone in the automobile industry almost two years ago with a video in which the hypercar does the 0-62mph sprint in a jaw-dropping 1.92 second. Well, the Japanese boutique carmaker has introduced the production version of the electric hypercar at the Dubai International Motor Show. The Aspark Owl is considered to be the fastest accelerating car in the world with a 1.69 second zero to 60 mph acceleration time. “We were the first company to present the concept of a full-electric hypercar back in 2017,” Masanori Yoshida, Aspark CEO said during the launch of Owl EV hypercar. “The first to present the production version at the 2019 Dubai International Motor Show. We will be the first to deliver a full-electric hypercar to customers in the second quarter of 2020. And I am really proud of this.”
Aspark claims absolutely unbelievable performance figures for the owl. The claimed top speed is 249 mph, while the sprint from a stop to 186 mph requires a mere 10.6 seconds.
This has been made possible thanks to four electric motors making a total of 1,985 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque. The hypercar features a 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that provides a claimed range of 280 miles in the NEDC test, but Aspark says that a larger battery could be available in the near future. Aspark will build only 50 examples of the Owl at a price of €2.9 million (about $3.2 million) and deliveries are expected to start in the second quarter of 2020.
