The production version of the full-electric hypercar Owl has been unveiled at the Dubai International Motor Show.
Its manufacturer – Japan’s Aspark – describes it as the fastest accelerating car in the world: 0-60 mph in 1.69 seconds. Its top speed is 400 km/h.
It features 4 Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) that produce 2012 horsepower (1480 kW) representing the most powerful e-motors ever made. The Owl offers a range of up to 450 km.
It has almost three times more power than Formula-E cars and two times more than Formula 1 cars.
Aspark describes it as: ‘the full-electric hypercar Owl is a compendium of state-of-the-art technology, design and functionality, mixed with a genuine passion for beauty’.
Aspark’s CEO, Masanori Yoshida, says: “We were the first company to present the concept of a full-electric hypercar back in 2017. The first to present the production version at 2019 Dubai International Motor Show. We will be the first to deliver a full-electric hypercar to customers in the second quarter of 2020. And I am really proud of this.”
The production version of the Owl is limited to only 50 cars worldwide. Production is planned to take place in Turin, Italy in collaboration with Manifattura Automobili Torino, with the full support of Aspark engineering centres in the world.
Aspark plans to deliver the first set of the Owl by the second quarter of 2020.
