This Aspark Owl was unveiled past year and like the Roadster, utilizes an all-electric powertrain. It will go 0 to 100 kph (0 to 62 mph) in under 2 seconds. The video seen below, from Gigazine, shows the Aspark Own hitting 62 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds, quicker than what Tesla is claiming and nearly anything else on the road.

Although there are a number of other performance metrics which are far more instructive than an impressive 0-60 time, that's the reality the automotive world operates in.

Undoubtedly the supercar was fitted with a set of Hoosier racing tires and a rear-wheel-only was heated up before the test and not street-legal tires.

If the Aspark's Owl lightning-fast 0-100 km/h time can be replicated on everyday street tyres, it could easily become the world's fastest accelerating auto.

China loses to South Korea in PyeongChang Games women's curling
Sweden tops the standings with five straight wins, followed by Japan and South Korea on four wins and one loss. The Korean team started the match strongly as they scored three points in the first and third ends.

We're yet to see if that time is achievable by the Tesla but small Japanese marque Aspark has shown its Owl prototype achieving such a blistering time. indicating that Musk's claim wasn't so outlandish after all. The Japanese company behind the electric sports auto revealed that it is powered by two electric motors and it will make 430 horsepower, 563 all-wheel lb-ft of torque, weigh less than 1900 pounds. The numbers are lower than a gasoline-powered supercar but the Owl is lighter at just 1,874 pounds.

Aspark plans to build just 50 Owl supercars, with starting price of 3.5 million (approximately $4.4 million).

A few tenths of a second quicker to 60 miles per hour may not sound like much but at this level, any improvement is incredibly hard to achieve.
