Nothing accelerates innovation like raw sporting competition. This belief is at the foundation of Airspeeder, the world’s first motorsport series for electric flying cars. Together with a team of leading technical minds, founder Matt Pearson is enabling a dream of establishing a full grid of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Engineered with a focus on performance and agility, these “Speeder” octocopters will compete closely and safely at a top speed of 200 km/h, fully controlled by a human pilot. Pearson’s vision is to use Airspeeder to accelerate the shift to more sustainable clean-air mobility technologies, eventually transforming aerial passenger transport, logistics and medical applications.
IWC Schaffhausen and Airspeeder share a passion for engineering, pioneering technical solutions, innovation, teamwork, design and sustainability. This engineering and timekeeping partnership brings together the dream of flying with an exhilarating aviation competition – combining IWC’s legacy in manufacturing robust and reliable pilot’s watches with the brand’s passion for racing.
