The car is Aussie Invader 5R, and its build is complete. We are entering phase 2 of our project, the testing. We are currently trying to raise funds to facilitate this testing.

Aussie Invader 5R weighs 9.2 tonnes fully fuelled and can accelerate from 0 – 1,000 mph (1,600+ km/h) in just over 20 seconds. In that time, it will burn 2.8 tonnes of propellant and, at full speed, will travel a mile (1.6 kilometres) in 3.5 seconds! This will be the world’s most powerful car and is being built in Perth, Australia. This car is an engineering marvel. It has taken nearly 20 years to build by the Aussie Invader Team with some of the world’s best engineers and minds.


Fewer people have driven a car at over 620 mph (1,000 km/h) than have walked on the Moon, and Rosco McGlashan is one of them!

We have just published a book on Rosco’s incredible life and his obsession with speed, raw horsepower, and living on the edge. It is called “ROSCO The Fastest Aussie on Earth”, and it is certainly not your typical motor racing memoir. It’s an incredible story of highs and lows, good and bad, and triumph over adversity. But most of all, It’s a human story about one man’s journey and obsession with speed to become THE FASTEST MAN ON EARTH!

Aussie Invader 5R is being built with the help of some great Australian and International companies, big and small. Without their help and support Australia’s Land Speed Record Challenge would still be on the drawing board.
