While the biggest stories of the Paris Motor Show were the mainstream manufacturer reveals - the likes of the new BMW 3-series and the Hyundai i30 N Fastback - we mustn’t forget about the smaller companies showcasing their wares at the expo Porte de Versailles.

Japanese company Aspark is one, and although the dubiously-named Owl is a car we’ve seen before, we’ve learned quite a bit more about it this week. Notably, the price. It’s €1 million. For a deposit.

Yep, a non-refundable seven-figure sum to secure one of 50 of these all-electric hypercars. The full price is an off-shore account-busting €3.1 million.

For that, you’re getting an extremely low-slung coupe with two electric motors providing a combined 1150bhp. Quite an output for a car weighing 850kg.

The power figure is a significant increase on the 429bhp previously claimed, explaining how the Aspark is able to hit 62mph in under two-seconds. And that’s not just a bold claim - the company proved it was possible with the acceleration run you see above, held earlier this year in rather confined conditions…

The range has increased too, with Aspark now saying up to 186 miles should be possible on a single charge. Presumably when you’re not performing acceleration runs. The top speed, meanwhile, is 174mph.

The question is, would you have one of these or a Rimac C_Two?
