If the 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds by the 1,500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron or the 1,244-horsepower Hennessey Venom feels a bit tepid for your speed-hungry self, there’s a new heavy-hitter in the form of the Japanese-made Aspark Owl. Though we’re not sure why it’s named after a sluggish nocturnal bird, the Owl is no slouch. The rigid and light monocoque chassis is full carbon fiber, and the body is made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. Most of the craziness, however, comes from the Owl’s four electric motors for a total of 2,012 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of earth-ripping oomph. The result is a 0-60 time of well under two seconds and a top speed of close to 250 mph. The 1,300kW lithium-ion battery pack delivers 280 miles of commuter-friendly all-electric range, but you’ll need to drive it for quite a while to make up for the $3.2 million price tag. No price has been estimated to put your facial features and internal organs back in their proper locations.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
