Aspark‘s Owl electric hypercar — which was first unveiled back in September — has just posted a seemingly impossible feat in a recent test. In the video above, the Owl records a 0-60 time of 1.921 seconds placing it amongst the supercar elite.

There are some qualifying factors to this feat, with the Owl using racing slicks which had been warmed up prior to the test. However, Aspark has announced that it plans to continue development on the car until the sub-2-second acceleration is also available on road legal tires. Tesla is also planning a car that can reach 60mph in under two seconds, with the new Roadster unveiled last year tipped to become the “fastest production car ever made.” That Roadster will retail for $200,000 USD, putting it well below the $4.4 million USD Owl, with Aspark only set to produce 50 models.

In other automotive news, a 1961 Aston Martin is set to become the most expensive car ever sold in Britain.
