This Japanese Electric Supercar Aims To Be The Fastest Car In The World


Aspark's electric supercar aims to hit 0-62 mph in less than 2 seconds.

As you probably know by now, this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show will host the reveal of the highly-publicized Mercedes-AMG Project One, an F1-powered hypercar that will redefine the performance capabilities of a road car. Japan’s Aspark (no, we hadn't heard of them either) has similar aspirations for EVs with the forthcoming reveal of its new supercar, the bizarrely named Owl. The electric supercar has been in development since 2014 and will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this month.

Full technical specifications are still under wraps for now, but the Owl's performance is ambitious, to say the least. Aspark is targeting a mind-bending 0-62 mph sprint time of under two seconds which would make the Owl the fastest accelerating car in the world. Yes, that would make it even faster than the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon which currently holds the fastest production car record, with a 0-62 mph time of 2.3 seconds. At one meter tall, the Aspark Owl wears a full-carbon body and rides on magnesium wheels to make it as lightweight as possible. To give you a taste of the Owl’s ferocious acceleration, Aspark has released a series of test videos showing the supercar stripped down to its bare-naked chassis.

Official renders of the Aspark Owl depict a prominent front splitter, side vents, a massive rear wing and gullwing doors. The side mirrors and conventional seats suggest it could be a road car, but the aero-enhancing features make it look more like a track-only special. All will soon be revealed when the Frankfurt Auto show opens its doors on September 12.
