Aspark, a relatively new company out of Japan, is unveiling its first planned production car at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week, dubbed the Owl. It's an all-electric carbon-bodied supercar the company promises will go from 0-60 in under two seconds, which would make it the quickest production car ever to do so.
New supercar companies pop up all the time with neat designs and ambition, but most of them fail to ever reach production. Details on the Owl besides its 0-60 performance aren't clear, but it seems Aspark might be farther along into development than we think, meaning this car could actually become a reality.
A video shot by Japanese site shows a stripped-down test mule of the Owl doing short acceleration runs in an empty parking lot. From the video we can see the car definitely has front axles, meaning it has all-wheel drive. Also, it's using racing slicks rather than normal road tires, and has essentially no body. But other than that, we can't deduce much. Hey, it's a running, driving car, right? That's farther than most companies get.
Though details are pretty hazy on the Owl right now, we're sure a lot more info will be made clear once Frankfurt rolls around. Stay tuned.
