Japanese engineering and research and development company Aspark has officially launched its long-awaited electric supercar known as The Owl. The record-breaking car was originally conceptualized in 2015 and has since been confirmed as the fastest accelerating car in the world; stopped the clock at 0-60 mph at just 1.72 seconds.
“When we decided to do this project, no one believed it could be done,” Aspark CEO Mr. Yoshida said in an earlier press release. “That’s what we do at Aspark – we think outside the box and explore new, undisputed territories, no matter the circumstances.”
The 198-horsepower electric vehicle is considered one of the most important revolutionary cars to appear on the market to date with a range of 249 miles and a top speed of 249 mph.
Production has already begun with a very limited series of fifty cars available worldwide – with twenty in Europe, twenty in the Middle East and Asia, and a handful in North America. That said, according to Aspark, the revolutionary supercar will gradually become more widely available.
“We will continue to increase the number of retailers around the world so that we can sell the owl to the right customers at the right time and provide them with a special driving and acceleration experience they have never had before,” Mr. Yoshida explained in a press release.
According to Mr. Yoshida, the launch of the Owl marks just one of a series of “extreme and disruptive” automotive projects planned at Aspark’s Osaka headquarters, each of which will encourage a different level of driving, acceleration and innovation.
