Watch the Aspark Owl electric supercar go from 0-60 in under 2 seconds

The new Tesla Roadster electric sports car has a rival in the speed stakes.

Japanese super car manufacturer Aspark has posted video of its fully electric Owl prototype travelling from 0-60mph in under two seconds.

The car, revealed as a concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year, made the run in just 1.92 seconds.

The car is using racing slicks rather than street tires, but that’s still ridiculously impressive.

The 1,874-pound Owl overs a pair of 40kW motors, delivering 429bhp and 564 foot-pound of torque. That’s enough for a 174mph top speed and 93 miles on a single charge (via TopGear).

Aspark is building just 50 versions of the Owl, each of which costing $4.4 million. That makes the $200,000 Tesla Roadster look cheap!

Speaking of Tesla…

Back in November, the 2020 Tesla Roadster was filmed hitting 60mph from a dead stop in just 1.9 seconds.

Tesla calls it the “Maximum Plaid” race mode, which will replace the “Ludicrous Mode” in vehicles like the Tesla Model S.

The new Roadster, which will be released in a couple of years, will deliver a top speed of 250mph, while it’ll travel a quarter of a mile in less than 8 seconds.
