Aussie Invader 5R


The car is Aussie Invader 5R, and its build (phase 1) is complete. We are at phase 2 of our project, the testing. We are currently trying to raise funds to facilitate this phase. We looking to partner with dynamic companies to get behind us and see Australia challenge for the world land speed record.

Aussie Invader 5R will weigh around 9.2 tonnes fully fuelled and will have the potential to accelerate from 0 – 1,000 mph (1,600+ km/h) in just over 20 seconds. In that time, it will burn approximately 2.8 tonnes of propellant and at full speed, will travel a mile (1.6 km) 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 from concept design to build completion by the Aussie Invader Team, with input from some of the world’s best engineers and minds.


We recently published a book on Rosco’s incredible life, 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.

Rosco McGlashan OAM is an Australian drag racing champion and land speed record holder. Read his true and remarkable story in 378 action-packed pages, with 160 incredible images.

It’s a fantastic 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! Don’t take our word for it, please read the reviews.

Major Partners

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.
