What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Achieving the Impossible

The world's most powerful car Aussie Invader 5R
The world's most powerful car Aussie Invader 5R

Imagine climbing into a rocket powered car and accelerating through the sound barrier in just 14 seconds, and reaching a 1000mph in just 20 seconds! This is what the Aussie Invader 5R project is trying to do. We have for the last 15 years been planning, designing and building the world's most powerful car.

The car is Aussie Invader 5R and it is now a reality, and will run a single bi-propellant rocket engine, producing 62,000 lbs of thrust (equivalent to about 200,000 horsepower).

The Car is Completed

The actual car is now built and our focus has now turned to the development of the single bi-propellant rocket engine. Aussie Invader 5R has brought together some exceptionally talented people from very different backgrounds and global locations, all volunteers and are working to achieve the impossible,  a car capable of 1000mph on land, and with YOUR help we can.

Aussie Engineering & USA Power

State of the art engineering
State of the art engineering

The rocket engine development is being undertaken by a USA company called Interorbital Systems, and a series of meetings, discussions and demonstrations are planned in the next month to move forward with the main engine build. However these meeting cannot happen without us raising some funds to engage Interorbital Systems and pay a service retainer, with a series of meetings and technical demonstrations to follow. The more we raise the further and quicker we can develop our power unit.

Risks and challenges

We are not going to tell you a project like this does not come with its risks and dangers, but we have never waivered in our determination in the 15 years, having hit setbacks, we have always managed to overcome them.
This never say die attitude has taken us so from concept to completed car build, and we don't intend to stop until the land speed record is broken. Please help support our project to get the development of our rocket engine started. For more information on this unique and exciting project, please visit https://aussieinvader.com.
