The production version of the Japanese electric hypercar, the Aspark Owl, made its debut at the 2019 Dubai Motor Show, earlier this week.

Equipped with four electric motors, the Aspark Owl produces 2012 brake horsepower and 2000 Nm of torque. According to the automaker, it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 1.69 seconds, making it faster than its high-spec rivals; the Rimac Concept Two and Tesla Roadster which can do the sprint in 1.85 seconds and 1.9 seconds respectively. The owl can reach 300 km/h in just 10.6 seconds with a claimed top speed of 400 km/h.

The Owl is powered by a 64 kW lithium-ion battery and can be fully charged in just 80 minutes and is said to have a driving range of 400 km.

The car is made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, weighing just 1900 kg. It also has a height of just 993 mm, making it not the easiest vehicle to get into or out of.

Just 50 Owl coupes will be made by Manifattura Automobili Torino in Italy and pricing starts from $4.7 million. Customers deliveries are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2020.
