Cover for The Aspark Owl will do 0-60 in 1.72 seconds.

Japanese startup Aspark’s Owl hypercar has finally actually achieved it’s goal of 0-60 in under 2 seconds during testing, with an exact time of 1.72 seconds.

The 4188 lb Owl is propelled by four electric motors for a total output of 1984 horsepower and 1475 lb-ft of torque. And for those wondering, the tires used during the test were Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s.

This is obviously insanely fast and probably too fast for the road anyway, yet somehow this thing is going to be road legal.

So many startups trying to cash in on the easy huge electric hp, and charging big money for it. Soon we'll be able to buy electric cars with 1000hp just under 6 figures. But for now, they are trying to charge 7 figures for it.

This car has a 64kwh battery, small to maintain the power to weight advantage.
But then if you look into the figures, that's just 155s of full throttle from a full charge to a dead battery. That would last you literally minutes of fun on track, (the only place where you can actually unleash this car's potential).

Essentially it's only made for drag races. You can probably do about 10 runs realistically. Same thing with the Lotus Ejiva. No point in marketing yourself as lightweight and powerful, perfect for the track, when you can't even last 10 minutes out there.

Is the 0-60 mph time of 1.72 sec with or without roll-out?
