As Many of you will be unaware of the sheer scale and magnitude of the company that Mr. Masanori Yoshida, President of Aspark Co Ltd, has established in 2005 and presides over to now be one of Asia’s foremost providers of Automotive Engineering resource.

The Aspark OWL is the vision of President Yoshida, and the vision was to produce the world’s fastest electric high-level high-quality vehicle and to produce that vehicle in limited numbers to supply to exclusive clients around the globe.

Development of the vision started with an in-house test mule utilising Aspark’s engineering capabilities, normally directed and working with major automotive suppliers, their expertise was deployed to define the potential performance and set the benchmark for future targets.

The decision at Aspark to work on the development of a motorcar came from our desire to produce something exciting that had never been seen before.

Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 was targeted as the perfect time and place to launch the Project Aspark Owl concept car as the automotive world’s fastest accelerating EV. Demonstrating to the world for the first time, Aspark’s Engineers not only provided an insight into the concept of the world’s first sub 2*second 0-100kph performance but also the unique ultra-low profile low coefficient body design. The OWL is the supercar that has the lowest height.

Detailed feasibility studies were implemented and today, Aspark is developing a new version of OWL.

The Paris Motor Show 2018 marked an important milestone in the evolution of a vision in the Aspark Owl journey, just prior to the final specifications being announced and the realisation of a vision being materialised. Plans are now being finalised to ensure OWL production meets the demands of its discerning clientele and President Yoshida can start to consider the next step in the evolution of a parliament of Owls!

Aspark Engineers fully explored the key ways for achieving OWL’s major target 0-100kph in less than 2* seconds. As a result, we have done hundreds of simulations for exploring the best performance of OWL.

We built our second prototype car and in February 2018, Aspark engineers launched acceleration tests in Japan. All results were under 2* seconds and the best result was 1.89 * seconds.

After starting series production, Aspark Engineers fully concentrated on increasing the OWL performance, particularly acceleration performance, drive range, horsepower and other major performances.

For the Owl’s design concept, we focused on making conventional supercars look slow. As the traffic lights turn green, Owl kills its prey, as you rocket from stand still to 100km/h in less than 1.9 * seconds, your heart will race, welcome to the world of Owl.

The Owl is conceived, designed and engineered to be the fastest accelerating, fully electric, hypercar: the extreme shape of the design, the technological level of the components and the advanced studies on the materials will enable her to reach 0-100 kph in under 1,9*.

Aspark Co. Ltd will unveil the final production version of the OWL at Dubai International Motor Show in November 2019. The first car will be delivered to customers in April 2020.

There are two types of car design – correct design, and passionate design.

Expressed differently, logic and inspiration. 99.9% of cars on the world’s roads fall into the former category. Economical, safe and comfortable. Cars suitable for our age. But these cars don’t get your heart pounding.

We at Aspark are bringing something new to the table. We are injecting a fresh sense of surprise and excitement in today’s logic-governed world.

The first stage of our plan revolves around the Owl, our premium electric supercar. A simple and individually designed car, it offers unprecedented speed and beauty.

The Owl is not a car for everyone, only a select few can appreciate the true value of Owl.
