Alongside unveiling the second-generation Tesla Roadster in November 2017, Elon Musk made the audacious claim that it would reach 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) in 1.9 seconds.
This is made possible by the car's lightweight, all-carbon body and two 40kW electric motors sends a combined 429 hp and 563 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. Its Grimsel pint-sized electric racing vehicle has sprinted from 0-62mph in just 1.51 seconds, in a space of no more than 30 metres. That might not seem like much but the Owl only weighs 1,874 pounds. Indeed, the only reason we even pay attention to 0-60 times is because it's the closest approximation to the 0-100 km/h standard used elsewhere in the world. It's running on slicks instead of street legal tires but apparently, that doesn't make a lot of difference because Aspark says that the street legal version of the Owl will also be able to achieve similar times. How on earth engineering has become so refined and sophisticated that it has managed to shave off more than 1 second must either be pure triumph of humankind, or mere sorcery.
