Watch Japan's Newest Electric Car Do 0-60 in 1.9 Seconds

It's a prototype, and it's running on slick tires, but still: That's ridiculously quick.


Remember the Aspark Owl? It's an all-electric carbon fiber supercar out of Japan, first revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show. Back then, it promised the quickest 0-60 time of any road-legal car, ever, with a time under two seconds. Judging by this latest test video, it looks like the company is well on its way to accomplishing that feat.

The video, uploaded by Japanese site , shows an Owl test mule doing a hard launch in what looks to be a back lot of an industrial warehouse. The video claims the car was able to reach 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds—precisely what the company promised it would do. There are a couple of caveats, however.

The car itself looks to be completely stripped inside, with exposed wiring and no sound-deadening. It was also equipped with Hoosier racing slicks—hardly a road-legal tire. There's no telling if the final version of the Aspark Owl will be able to pull of the same 0-60 time using street-legal rubber and a finished interior. Guess we'll have to wait to find out.
