Hypercar Owl Japanese company Aspark, claiming the title of the fastest production car in the world, at the test range in Tochigi prefecture accelerated from zero to “hundreds” for 1,921 seconds. This is reported by Clicccar.

Work on the hypermarket Owl was conducted from 2014 by several employees of a Japanese consulting company. The public debut of the prototype took place in 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The feature of Owl was its height – 99 centimeters.
The exhibition copy of the supercar was equipped with two electric motors, the total output of which was 435 horsepower and 764 Nm of torque (the power plant power of the test car – more than 1000 horsepower). The weight of the car is 850 kilograms. For the supply of motors, not only rechargeable batteries, but also supercapacitors are used, which help with short-time acceleration.
The company Aspark intends to release only 50 copies of the hypermarket Owl. The price of each car will be 460 million yen (247 million rubles).
