The electric car world is at loggerheads with the petrol car world and the fact is that this is a war which will eventually be won by the electric vehicles. A small Japanese firm has delivered yet another powerful blow to the fossil-fueled vehicles.
Electric cars are not slow anymore and this Aspark Owl is the perfect example of that. With 0-100 km/h done in a scarcely believable 1.921 seconds, the Aspark Owl is the fastest accelerating street legal hypercar, beating the Dodge Challenger Demon, which did the run to 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds.
The Aspark Owl doesn't just beat the likes of the Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren P1, Ferrari La Ferrari etc. It also matches the much talked about 0-100 km/h in 1.9 seconds acceleration of the Tesla Roadster.
The Aspark Owl was first revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year and at the time was claimed to produce 430bhp and 759.2Nm. While that might not seem like anything at all compared to the output of other hypercars, the Owl's weight would put them all to shame. The Japanese electric hypercar weighs just 861 kilograms! This is just under 120 kilograms more than a 2018 Formula One racecar.
When it comes to design, the Aspark Owl comes nowhere close to being gorgeous or beautiful. The Aspark Owl looks deadly and aggressive, just like a racecar. It seems like the electric hypercar is completely made out of carbon fibre and even the slot for the headlamp up front is completely blacked out. This along with an aerodynamically sharp design makes it look stealthy.
The side and the rear of the car gives one an impression that the Aspark Owl was designed completely based on aerodynamic performance. The large wing at the rear further increases the aggressive racecar looks.
The Aspark Owl achieved the 0-100km/h in 1.921 seconds while riding on Hoosier slick tyres which is used in racing, so that doesn't really make it street legal. With proper street tyres on though, it will be legal and it will be sold at around $4.4 million (Rs 28.52 Crore).
Deadly looks and outrageous performance comes at a cost. In this case, the cost is Rs 28.52 crore. Is it worth that much when the Tesla Roadster, with higher performance and more creature comforts can be availed at around Rs 1.29 crore? Well if you are one who seeks exclusivity, then yes the Aspark is the one to go for, because only 50 Aspark Owls will be produced.
