The Aspark Owl just did 0-60mph in 1.9s

Japan’s newest electric supercar just blitzed the benchmark run

Read more on:

A prototype electric supercar has just accelerated from 0-60mph in 1.92s. Yes folks, Japanese supercar-maker Aspark has tested its Owl EV, and it has delivered.

Delivered on a promise Aspark made last year, confidently predicting its two-seat, butterfly-doored exotic could run the benchmark 0-62mph sprint in less than two.

How? Hoosier racing tyres, to start with. According to information we learned at Frankfurt last year, the Owl runs a pair of 40kW motors, offering up 429bhp and 563lb ft of torque. There’s a battery and supercapacitor setup (the latter recovering energy from braking), for instant juice.

Juice sent to all four wheels of course, for that mind-blowing acceleration run. The motors are small. The car is light (850kg). It sits low (just 990mm tall). 

Aspark reckons this Owl is capable of hitting 174mph flat out, a top speed that would likely affect the claimed 93-mile battery range.

But still. 0-60mph in 1.92s. That is ridiculous.
