Aspark Owl 2019

Aspark Owl '19


After years of teasing, the Aspark Owl is finally here, and the Japanese electric hypercar claims to be the quickest in the world with the ability to hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 1.69 seconds. This is possible thanks to four electric motors making a total of 2,012 horsepower (1,480 kilowatts) and 1,475 pound-feet (2,000 Newton-meters) of torque.

Aspark claims world-beating performance specs for the Owl. The claimed top speed is 249 mph (400 kph), and a run from a stop to 186 mph (300 kph) requires a mere 10.6 seconds. The machine packs a 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that provides a claimed range of 280 miles (450 kilometers) in the NEDC test. Aspark says that a larger battery could be available in the near future.

Aspark wants the Owl's exterior to portray a feminine appearance. The body features a mix of taut creases and smooth curves. All of the panels are carbon fiber reinforced plastic, except for a stainless steel frame in the roof for extra support. The machine's total height is just 38.9764 inches (99 centimeters). Underneath the skin, there's a carbon-fiber monocoque that weighs just 265 pounds (120 kilograms).

The Owl rides on a double-wishbone suspension at each corner. Hydraulic dampers have three modes that offer between 3.15 inches (80 millimeters) and 6.299 inches (160 millimeters) of ground clearance. Carbon-ceramic brake discs with 10-piston calipers in front and 4-piston stoppers at the back help slow down the hypercar.

Aspark doesn't provide a good look at the Owl's interior. There are four displays on the inside, and two of them function as screens for the rear-facing cameras that incorporate into the side mirrors.

Aspark will make just 50 examples of the Owl at a price of €2.9 million ($3.2 million at current exchange rates). The company intends deliveries to start in the second quarter of 2020.
