As it turned out, in four hours the volume of orders was already 20,000, in 48 hours – 50,000, in 72 hours – 60,000. The excitement, of course, is not the same as in the case of the Tesla Cybertruck, but for a completely new expensive between $47,780 and $56,750) of an internal combustion engine car in the highly competitive Chinese market, this is definitely a mark of success.

Revealed jet-powered Zapata JetRacer flying car that flies on kerosene
The JetRacer flying car was unveiled this month by former jet ski world champion Frankie Zapata. The Frenchman’s eponymous company has produced a number of other microjet-powered aircraft that operate above water or above ground, including the recently introduced JetRacer.
JetRacer Zapata differs from other aircraft in its unusual shape. Also, unlike other electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles, the JetRacer has no visible propellers and runs on kerosene instead of batteries.
It flies using 10 microjet engines, climbing up to 3,000 meters and reaching a top speed of 250 km/h. JetRacer can move at speeds up to 250 km/h.
“JetRacer is built on a lightweight and modular chassis, which allows it to meet a variety of needs, both civilian and military, as well as be remotely controlled,” Zapata’s official website says. “All critical systems are designed to provide an extremely high level of safety: propulsion, control, power supply, etc.”
The JetRacer is designed to keep flying even if two out of ten engines fail. Zapata is working on two additional JetRacer prototypes, with plans to sell the machine to individuals, businesses, security agencies and the military.
