Aspark Owl will set a new Nurburgring recordJanuary 29, 2019
The Japanese automaker of a fully electric hypercar will build only 50 copies of the Aspark Owl, which consists entirely of carbon fiber. And soon, the novelty will try to beat the current Nurburgring record.
You may remember the Aspark Owl electric hypercar, which was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017. The development of the Japanese car is still ongoing, and now the company says that the hypercar will be able to break the record of the German Nürburgring race track.
“The capabilities of our Aspark Owl hypercar allow us to aim at conquering the Nürburgring,” said a company spokesperson for Top Gear.
He also said that a more powerful racing version of the hypercar is possible if there is enough demand for it.
Aspark’s test results show that the hypercar can reach speeds of 100 km / h in 1.9 seconds. Official specifications of the company show that the hypercar can reach speeds of up to 280 km / h, and the power reserve is only 150 kilometers. Under the hood, the electric Aspark Owl has 429 horsepower and 764 Nm of torque. Now, power has increased to an impressive 1,150 hp.
Hypercar has an ultra-low landing. The whole body is made of carbon fiber, and the bottom has a tubular frame to minimize weight. The guys from Aspark claim that the car weighs only 850 kilograms.
At a price of 3.1 million euros, 50 copies of Aspark Owl will be produced, the first of which will be released in 2020.
