Aspark Owl, the 2000 HP Italian-Japanese electric hypercar is now available
It's official, three years after its presentation at the Frankfurt Motor Show, sales of the Aspark Owl hypercar have finally started in North America and Europe. Designed by Aspark, a Japanese company based in Osaka, Owl is produced at the Italian plants of Manifattura Automobobili Torino and sold at a price of almost 3 million euros.

The first two pre-production prototypes have been spotted at the showroom set up in Osaka, a location designed to welcome wealthy guests and VIPs from Japan and Asia. The global production, at present, foresees a limited number of 50 examples, of which only 20 are destined for the Old Continent.

Aspark Owl is a completely electric car characterized by a decidedly design sober and sinuous, far from the concept of extreme hypercar to which we are now all too accustomed. Unlike the more renowned and performing models on the market, Aspark Owl does not integrate showy rear wings or marked air intakes. Despite its slightly extreme appearance, Owl follows all the main stylistic features of the cars in its segment, such as the carbon body built around a carbon fiber monocoque frame.

The powertrain is made up of four permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, capable of developing a total power of 1,985 HP. According to the company, the 64 kW h battery pack should ensure a range of 450 km. Braking power is instead managed by carbon-ceramic discs with 10-piston calipers at the front and 4-piston at the rear.

To give the car more prominence, in addition to the staggering price, are probably the performance reported by the manufacturer: less than 2 seconds to cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h and a maximum speed, probably limited , of 400 Km / h. The acceleration time of 1.69 seconds makes it the series production car with the fastest standing release in the world.
