Race Car Flying Faster Than Ferrari
Flying cars are now real and will soon even have their own racing series. Airspeeder MK4, which resembles the flying form of Formula 1 vehicles, is almost challenging with its high speed.
While we were making the flying car news, we had overlooked that a phenomenon that did not come to our minds was actually very close: Flying race cars. That’s exactly what we’re getting with the Airspeeder MK4, developed by South Australia-based Alauda Aeronautics.
Like a flying F1 car
Alauda Aeronautics describes the vehicle they announced as the world’s fastest hydrogen electric “Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft”. Airspeeder MK4, the single-seater electric flying race car, can reach speeds of 360 km/h, confirming the company’s “fastest” statement. The vehicle, which can reach top speed in just 30 seconds after takeoff, weighs only 950 kg. This high thrust is provided by the 1,340 hp ‘Thunderstrike Hydrogen Turbogenerator’. The range of the vehicle is 300 kilometers, which is quite impressive considering its high speed.
Races start soon.

On the other hand, according to the company, the first crewed flying car races will start in 2024. It is even reported that races were held in a remotely controlled manner last October without any accident.
