The most powerful production car was unveiled at the 2019 Dubai International Motor Show. German? No. Italian? No. It is the Japanese car, Aspark Owl! The Japanese company Aspark unveiled it at the motor show and it made jaws drop. This new hypercar has some impressive performance figures which might just persuade you to sell any car in Dubai. Hear all about it at CarSwitch.com.
Till now, the most powerful production car to be ever built was the AED $2 Million, All-Electric Evija Hypercar with an output of around 2,000 hp. The Aspark Owl beats that figure as it cranks out a massive 2,012hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque, taking the title of the Evija. Even better, it goes from 0-100 kph in a mere 1.69 seconds, topping off at 248.55mph. In comparison, the Evija does in around 3 seconds. This also makes it the fastest accelerating car in the world. With these performance figures, you might have to be extra careful about the speed limits in Dubai.
The Owl was a concept car back in 2014 and after rigorous testing, it is now available for sale with a price tag of €2.9million(AED 8.8million) according to Top Gear. Even with such a hefty price tag, 15 of the 50 units have already been pre-booked.
The exterior of this car is made of carbon fibre to keep it lightweight. Moreover, it will have torque vectoring so you can have a blasting experience on some of the best roads in the world. It is powered by a 64kWh lithium battery and is fitted with four motors with one inside each wheel. The drivetrain is taken from a third party whose identity is under wraps. Nevertheless, it allows this car to go about 450km on a single charge. The ride height of this car is only 99cm which makes it one of the lowest street legal cars.
It is to be built in Manifattura Automobili Torino, Italy and will go on sale next year. However, we’re not sure whether it will make it to the UAE but what we know is that car enthusiasts will be willing to sell any car in Dubai to get their hands on this speedy monster.
