The Alauda Airspeeder Mk3 has finally been revealed, and it’s touted as the world’s first electric flying race car. The company is currently building a number of these racing vehicles at its technical facility in Adelaide, South Australia, which will then be supplied to teams for the first races around electronically governed courses in late 2021. At 220-pounds, this F1-inspired flying car is powered by a 96-kW battery pack that enables it to reach speeds in excess of over 75mph. Read more for a video and additional information.
Its F1-inspired design consists of a heavy duty carbon fiber frame and fuselage, while its X-shaped rotor configuration will help it navigate around hairpin turns. LiDAR sensors enable Mk3 to fly in close proximity to others and the next-generation Mk4 is already in the works, with an expected reveal date some time in 2022.
