‘Aspark Owl’ Breaks Electric Vehicle Speed Records

You may have a plethora of heated arguments reckoning the records Tesla’s electric vehicles have set in the last couple of years. Tesla cars may have the top power to throttle, but you must comply with the argument that Japanese EVs can’t be escaped from the list. Seems unbelievable? Have a look!

Japanese automaker Aspark is celebrating a remarkable achievement after their vehicle left the whole Ev industry into a daze – breaks two speed records, reaching speeds close to 200 mph.

The Aspark Owl supercar underwent rigorous testing at Alvington Airfield in northern England, securing Guinness World Records for average speeds over a quarter-mile and an eighth-mile distance.


The Holy Achievement

In the eighth-mile category, it achieved an average speed of 309.02 kph (192.02 mph), while in the quarter-mile category, it reached an average speed of 318.85 kph (198.12 mph).

This hypercar boasts impressive specifications, with the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in a mere 1.72 seconds. It has a top speed of 260 mph and a range of approximately 250 miles, taking just 40 minutes to recharge.

The Aspark Owl packs a punch with its 1,980 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque. However, acquiring this exceptional vehicle comes at a steep price, as one of the initial batches of 50 units will set you back £2.5 million. Aspark began selling the Owl to affluent customers in 2020.

Headquartered in Osaka, Japan, Aspark has dedicated years of development to their electric ultra-performance vehicles, starting from 2015. The company is experiencing growth with over 3,500 employees (as of 2022) and maintains 25 offices globally.

This record-breaking feat took place at Elvington Airfield, Yorkshire, under the supervision of the UK Timing Association during the Straightliners speed records event.
