Aspark Owl is a hypercar designed by Aspark, a Japanese company. Owl is claimed as the world’s first all-electric hypercar, and Aspark backs up this claim by revealing the final product specs.
The Aspark Owl’s $3.2 Million price tag is justified with its fascinating features. Initially, Aspark Owl planned to produce 50 cars, which would be delivered by the middle of 2020. This is not an unusual event. Manufacturing has had a long struggle that has eventually resulted in some mind-boggling requirements.
Masanori Yoshida, CEO of Aspark, introduced the prototype of the full-electric hypercar Aspark Owl at the Dubai International Motor Show. The full-electric hypercar Owl is a combination of state-of-the-art advanced technologies, design, and functionality, blended with a real passion for beauty. The body, chassis, and much of the elements are entirely made of top-level carbon fiber composites, incredibly powerful four electric motors, a distinctive torque vectoring system, an exclusive battery pack, and handmade premium interior.
Exterior Design of Aspark Owl
Let’s have a look at the physical characteristics. With a dry weight of only 4189 pounds, it joins the ranks of lightweight speed vehicles. The use of carbon fiber contributes to the lightness of the design.
Downforce is another issue with sporty cars, therefore the Aspark Owl makes use of the streamlined side glass, which allows the active rear wing to fully extend for maximum downforce.
Although it boldly stands at 39 inches tall, its ultra-flat design makes it appear as a low flyer and confuses onlookers with the appearance of a LeMans sedan. It can potentially be confused with the Apollo 1E and McLaren F1, as well as the futuristic style of LeMans.
Interior Design of Aspark Owl
As previously stated, the Aspark Owl is a two-seat, two-door coupe with limited cargo space and a small passenger compartment. To retain the racing aspect, only 2 cubic feet of storage space is available, and the futuristic shape is also balanced by the elevation inserted at the rear wheels.
Even though the handcrafted properties are appealing, the interior’s dual-tone color palette is not particularly appealing. Because additional information about the interior isn’t available, the images show a Black and White, Black and Brown color scheme that clashes with the futuristic external contour.
Features and Specs of Aspark Owl
Let’s have a look at some of the most important specifications. The Aspark Owl produces 1984 horsepower, 1475 lb-ft of torque, and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 1.7 seconds. The Aspark Owl is the first production model in the multi-million-dollar hypercar series.
The four electric motors, which are driven by a 64kWh lithium-ion battery system and torque vectoring, provide an unbelievable amount of power. Owl promises a total mileage of 280 miles. The top speed is a mind-blowing -249 mph.
The hydraulic suspension features a ride height – flexible range of 80-100 mm, ensuring maximum safety. Every corner’s carbon-ceramic brakes are equipped with 10-piston caliper in the front and four-piston calipers in the back. Aspark Owl is also protected by a sophisticated security system. The steering has a flat bottom, and the center console is a gleaming feature made of a single solid block of aluminum. The gold rims that are set on it do not go very well with color scheme.
Battery and Charging of Aspark Owl
Four permanent magnet synchronous motors (Quad motors) drive both the front and rear axles, giving it a four-wheel-drive vehicle. As a result of these four motors, the Aspark Owl engine is regarded as the most powerful motor ever created. It can accelerate from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 1.7 seconds, from 0 to 100 miles per hour in 1.9 secs, and from 0 to 186 miles per hour in 10.6 seconds.
Aspark Owl’s battery is a lithium-ion pack with a size of 64kwh and a power rating of 800 volts. The NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) claims a range of 450 kilometers, which is unlikely to be the actual range of 280 miles. Even though Aspark has a cutting-edge drivetrain and impressive performance, it lacks the charging capability. Despite having an 800-volt system and the ability to produce 2000 horsepower, it only charges at a rate of 44kw, which isn’t exactly a fast or smooth charging procedure.
Pricing of Aspark Owl
It is out of reach for the average person, yet it can be earned by the wealthy and famous. Because this car isn’t meant to be driven on a daily basis, but rather for display. The price tag now demands a sum of 3.5 million dollars. Only 50 Aspark Owl production models will be available for purchase, according to the business.
