(CNN)The “fastest accelerating car in the world” was unveiled at the Dubai Motor Show this week.
The fully-electric Aspark Owl is capable of reaching 60mph in just 1.69 seconds, according to Japanese manufacturers Aspark.
This outstrips electric, high-spec rivals such as Rimac’s Concept Two and Tesla’s Roadster, which take 1.85 seconds and 1.9 seconds respectively to hit the same mark.
The Owl was first revealed as a prototype in 2017 but the final version received its “world premiere” at the prestigious car show in Dubai.
Beyond record-breaking acceleration, Aspark also claims this is the first Japanese-made, fully-electric, top-tier supercar.
The Owl is powered by a Lithium-ion battery boasting 2,012 brake horsepower (bhp) that is fully charged in 80 minutes. The listed top speed is just a shade under 250mph, placing it among the fastest street-legal cars in the world.
Aspark President Masanori Yoshida told Top Gear magazine that the company will attempt to set a world-record lap time on the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany by March 2020.
