I guess that’s why there are now more million dollar supercars than cars under $20,000.
Today we’ve got another new entry into the supercar/hypercar field and boy, it is a doozy.
Introducing the Aspark Owl from Japan.
The Aspark Owl is a new all electric hypercar that during testing this summer at the Misano World Circuit went from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.72 seconds. And now they claim to have shaved that down to 1.69 seconds because, 1.72 seconds just wasn’t fast enough.
Cranking out an eye-watering 2,012 horsepower (1480 kW), the Aspark Owl has completed all of its major tests related to performance, safety and durability, and is now available for purchase at a price of just $3,433,875.50 (Euro 2,900,000).
It will reach a top speed of 248.5 mph (400 km/h) and might be the lowest profile street legal car in the world with its roof topping out at just 39 inches (99 cm).
The Owl will be limited to only 50 cars worldwide and each one will be fully customizable, meaning that if you are lucky enough to get one you will own the only car of its kind on the planet.
Production is taking place in Turin, Italy in collaboration with Manifattura Automobili Torino.
“It’s a great honor for Aspark to be the first to announce this achievement, reached in a record time. When we first announced this project, no one believed it could have been done: it is true that we do not have a long history, but we are now completing what is the first Japanese Electric hypercar,” said Aspark CEO Mr. Yoshida. “A proof of our vision, skills and engineering capabilities. This is what we do at Aspark: thinking outside the box and explore new, unchallenged territories, no matter the circumstances.”
“We are really looking forward to delivering the Owl to our first customers: they will experience a completely different level of driving and acceleration,” added Yoshida. “We have committed even more resources and engineers into the project, and Aspark will go the extra mile, from now on, to keep growing and delivering incredible machines and products to customers all over the world.”
