Video Of All-Electric Aspark Owl Hypercar Hit 0 - 60MPH In 1.92 Seconds

February 19, 2018

This is a video of an all-electric, 430 horsepower, 563 all-wheel lb-ft of torque, 1900 pound Aspark Owl hypercar hitting 0 - 60 MPH in 1.921 seconds (previously: the second generation Tesla Roadster doing the same thing). For reference, I don't even think my car can go 60MPH without exploding. Or at least not without alerting my parents I'm driving 25MPH over the speed limit and past my curfew.

Aspark has thrown down the gauntlet to the world of supercars, setting a 0-60 time of just 1.921 seconds. Admittedly, the car was fitted with a set of Hoosier racing tires (they appear to be quite similar to the Continental racing tires currently used in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship), and a rear-wheel-only burnout was conducted before the test to warm up the tires, but a 1.921 second 0-60 is a 1.921 second 0-60. While this was an incredible feat, Aspark claim they will continue to tweak the formula until this sub-two-second 0-60 time can be accomplished on street-legal tires.

Man, that was fast. Also, I like how they're testing the car in some sort of warehouse parking lot with the car aimed straight for a grassy hill. That is CONFIDENCE. Me? I have no confidence and I hate looking at myself in the mirror. If you're interested in an Owl they're going to be producing 50 of them soon for around $4.4-million apiece, or more than forty times what I'm asking for my entire life and soul on eBay ($100,000 firm). "I'll give you $200." Sold, I'll end the auction.

Keep going for the test run (skip to 1:05 for the action) and a video of the rear-tire burnout they did prior.

Thanks to Rogbert, who agrees this is the perfect car for pulling out into traffic without looking.

    So what you're telling me is if I don't want to wait a couple of years to pay $200K for the Tesla, I can pay 20x as much now for the same thing?

    I mean, I can't do either of those, but let's pretend.

    This just in: Pointy blob is pointy. Blobs fast.

    that looks like a Batmobile....i need it

  • Michael Knight

    something seems really fishy about this..... to me it seems like that is WAY not enough 'runway' to get up to that speed and then come to a complete stop. safely.

    They're in Japan. That's the longest straight-stretch they had access to without killing Godzilla first.

    Someone from this company please contact me. I want one of your vehicles, but am in no way able to pay for it. Lets make a deal.

    Would be a more entertaining video if someone cut the brake-line...

  • As they are punching it straight into a hill.... the 60-0 time was much more impressive to me.
    I gotta say though... it never looked like he got it going 60mph from the video, but I guess I'll just trust it, give a Brent Rambo thumbs up, and move on.

    The trick is to hit 100k with enough time to stop.

    This would get you to the local urine-in-a-cup vending machine and back in just a few minutes. Only $4.4M??
