Blink and you might miss this beast of a machine whizzing by you.

Claiming to be the fastest hypercar around, the Aspark Owl was officially revealed at a motor show in Dubai, and it boasts to hit 96.5kph in just 1.69 seconds. Yes, that claim is true then.

Manufactured by Japanese automotive firm Aspark, the Owl has a top speed of 400kph and can come to a full stop from 300kph in 10.6 seconds. Talk about a need for speed.

Under its hood, it uses four electric motors to give it a whopping 1,985 horsepower (that’s 1,480 kilowatts) and 2,000 Newton metres of torque.

This is an electric hypercar, and thanks to its 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery, it’s proven to have a range of 450km in a New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) test. Aspark even said that it will have an even bigger battery available sometime in the future to give it that much more distance.

It isn’t all about numbers though, as it also looks the part, too. The body features streamlined and smooth curves, with panels made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic along with a stainless steel frame in its roof.

If you have a few million dirhams lying around, the Aspark Owl will be priced at Dhs11.7 million (€2.9 million) when it officially releases onto the market at the start of the second quarter of 2020.

There will only be 50 of these lightning-fast electric vehicles made, so don’t expect to see too many of these vehicles driving around.
