Yet another ‘eco-friendly’ hypercar is on the horizon. But unlike the Holy
Trinity (McLaren P1, LaFerrari, Porsche 918), this one is not a hybrid but a
fully electric beast. It’s called the Aspark Owl.

As you can see by these images, the idea behind the car is to come in as a
proper hypercar; it’s not a futuristic green machine. Check out the size of
that rear wing, for starters. And the super-low nose which obviously doesn’t
have to house a combustion engine.

It’s from a Japanese company called Aspark, and aside from sounding like
what one might experience on the toilet after a big night, it all looks
pretty promising. The design is only in digital form but the company has
created a working platform. Details regarding the electric powertrain
haven’t been released as yet, however, the plan is for it to be powerful
enough to see 0-100km/h happen in under 2.0 seconds.

At this level of acceleration passengers will be subjected to ridiculous
g-force, making it one of the quickest new vehicles out. It’s unknown if
Aspark aims for the Owl to be a road-legal vehicle, but judging by these
design renders it might have a hard time getting government approval in some

We’ve heard a lot from startups and Tesla wannabes in recent times, all
looking to break into new benchmarks in the race for electric vehicle
supremacy. The Owl looks like it is getting there though, with a demo video
recently hitting the ‘Tube showing the working prototype up and running and
showing off some serious acceleration.

More details are expected to be revealed at the Frankfurt motor show next
week. In the meantime, check out the video below for a preview.
