This jet-speeder is designed for wealthy young executives and politicians to race in through the streets of cities.
About this creation
In the metropolises of the solar system, cities such as Atlanta, New Berlin, and Port Jefferson, street racing is flourishing. Bored politicians and businessmen like the excitement and danger of flying through busy streets at 600 mph, while impoverished tuners relish the chance to be at the same social level as their aristocratic competitors. The XJ-2 is one of the most popular speeders in this class, at least for those who can afford it.
The XJ-2 is powered by two T-550A rocket turbines, which propel it to a top speed of 720 mph. To diffuse the immense heat created by the turbine blades, its two radiator booms release the heat a safe distance away from the vehicle. The sleek design has as few obstructions as possible to give the speeder an extremely low drag coefficient, but the lack of external steering fins makes it difficult to maneuver at high speeds.
The XJ-2 is priced at 2.1 million Reichsmarks, putting it out of reach of all but the rich. For its unique blend of sufficient luxury and surplus power, though, the XJ-2 is worth its cost.
