Airspeeder, the world’s first flying electric car racing series, is soon to have its own state-of-the-art factory to produce the eVTOL machines created by Alauda Aeronautics.
The announcement comes on the back of a historic first drag race between the two eVTOL Alauda Mk3 machines played out in the deserts of South Australia, the two internal Alauda Mk3 teams at speeds well in excess of 100km/h.
Located within the newly announced Australian Space Park in Adelaide, the new factory producing these ground-breaking machines is co-funded by the Government of South Australia, and $20 million (AUS) will be contributed by the South Australian government to the development of the Park.
Alauda Aeronautics’ Technical Leadership Team is drawn from the greatest minds of the automotive and aeronautical industries including Ferrari, McLaren, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls Royce, Boeing and Airbus. It is the first in the world to be in production with performance electric flying cars.
“This will rapidly accelerate a mobility revolution and place Adelaide on the map as a world-class centre of innovation,” commented Matt Pearson – Airspeeder and Alauda Aeronautics, CEO.
The EXA remotely piloted GP Season will take place in 2021 at three soon-to-be-revealed international locations, with the forthcoming crewed series planned to race around the world in 2022.
