Aspark signs contract with Manifattura Automobili Torino to develop and build the Owl

ASPARK ANNOUNCES THE SIGNING OF THE CONTRACT WITH MANIFATTURA AUTOMOBILI TORINO FOR THE FINAL DEVELOPMENT AND BUILD OF THE ASPARK “OWL”

Aspark Co. Ltd has selected Turin, a town that has a very long, successful history on automotive, as one of the major development, testing and manufacturing centre of the OWL project. Turin is well known for delivering exceptional products thanks to its network of world leading companies.

With this decision, Aspark wants to accelerate the OWL project, and is honoured and pleased to do it in Turin.

Aspark is sure to have found the right place and the right partner to develop the fastest accelerating EV Hypercar, the OWL.

With the OWL project, Aspark is going to expand the boundaries of the automotive world and plan to continue innovating with its future automotive projects.

Aspark Co. Ltd, founded by Mr. Masanori Yoshida in 2005, is renowned for providing engineering services, particularly on the automotive sector.

M.A.T. srl, is proud to announce that it has been selected as the Development and Manufacturing partner for the Owl project.

M.A.T. will support Aspark in the vehicle development and in reaching the very aggressive targets that Aspark has set for this full electric Hypercar.

The Owl will be manufactured in a bespoke facility that will take full advantage of M.A.T. experience in Hypercars manufacturing.

The Owl project will allow M.A.T. to continue the company growth and to expand into a new sector: the full electric Hypercars. M.A.T. strengths and experience are well known internationally and have been recognised during the selection process.

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 1,90’’. The first customer car is set to be delivered in April 2020, with only 50 cars to be produced.

Mr Masanori Yoshida President of Aspark has added:

"I am very happy to bring this project to MAT and to Turin, where I am sure that we will confirm the exceptional results of the car and we will do a jump forward towards the production. The Owl for Aspark is the first stepping stone of a grander vision: It is our intention to continue to growth and to deliver exceptional products to our customers all over the world."

Mr Paolo Garella Founder and CEO of M.A.T. stated:

“I created MAT to respond to the never-ending human need to set and reach new goals. The Owl project perfectly fits this spirit and our company values. I personally love Japan and its culture, I am sure that MAT will grow and learn a lot thanks to this exciting project.”
