This is the Aspark Owl, a rare electric hypercar that recently became the fastest EV ever.

This isn’t hyperbole, it’s actually a certified Guinness World Record holder.

Now, the record-breaking car is available on SBX.

Electric cars are extremely quick off the line, chiefly due to the fact they’ve got fewer moving components.

But things are a bit more complex when it comes to the top speed.

Until not long ago, the vast majority of electric supercars came in with wild 0-60 times but relatively low top speed.

This is changing now, and the record Aspark just set proves it.

Aspark Owl, a record-breaking machine

The Owl is powered by four hub-mounted electric motors, for a combined power output of 1,953 horsepower.

It does 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in just 1.72 seconds, and it has a top speed of 413 km/h (257 mph).

In order to make sure fans, enthusiasts, and collectors know that Aspark means business, the company made sure they had Guinness World Records certify these records.

But wait, there’s more.

On June 8, a prototype derived from the production Aspark Owl, dubbed Aspark Owl SP600, reached a jaw-dropping top speed of 438.7 km/h (273 mph).

This means Aspark was not only able to beat the Rimac Nevera, but also beat the previous record set by the ‘standard’ Aspark Owl.

Combining Japanese engineering with Italian craftsmanship

The Owl has a unique history, because it combines Japanese engineering with Italian craftsmanship.

Engineered in Japan but designed and built in Italy by Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT), the Owl features carbon-fiber body panels built around a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis that weighs just over 260 lbs (120 kg).

And did we mention the dihedral doors?

There’s a place in supercar heaven for vehicles with dihedral doors.

Only one in the world

Aspark unveiled the first concept in 2017 and production began in 2020.

They’ve only built a few examples so far and production is capped at 50 units.

The one you see here – available from SBX Cars until July 3rd – is the only one in the world that’s available for sale.
