Airspeeder EXA, the world’s first flying race car makes its first flight ahead of the racing series.

Airspeeder EXA – the world’s first flying electric race car has made its maiden flight.

The unmanned flying race car unveiled earlier this year is said to be controlled remotely via a simulator, mimicking its dynamics & ergonomics. The flying car, manufactured by Alauda Aeronautics took its first flight in Southern Australia.

The maiden flight by the Airspeeder EXA is a precursor to the upcoming global flying racing series. The company stated that the first year of the racing series will act as a technical test-bed for the 2022 season, which Airspeeder hopes will be a manned flying race car series.

The Airspeeder EXA comes with a 96 kW electric powertrain, producing 429 BHP. It is said to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in under 2.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 120 km/h.
