“RATHER THAN DIMLY RECALLING ADVENTURES OF LONG AGO AS THE ONLY MOMENTS IN WHICH THEY TRULY LIVED, PILOTS HAVE A SENSE OF ADVENTURES YET TO COME”

DESIGN EXTERIOR & INTERIOR

Aggressive Exterior

The SkyRunner openly displays its attractive framework with its exoskeleton form suddenly serving aesthetic purposes in addition to their usual function. Thanks to the benefit of lightweight construction and high-strength, low-mass properties the SkyRunner chassis creates an aggressive and sporty look aimed at those who seek the ultimate pursuit of adventure.

Intuitive Interior

The cockpit of the SkyRunner uses a design centric approach to create a comfortable, functional environment that is a relaxing and truly great place to be. Devoid of distracting dials, switches and fiddly buttons, the SkyRunner cockpit is an exercise in ergonomic simplicity and satisfying tactility, to give the driver ultimate control whether in the air or on the ground.




2014 – Production Model

PERFORMANCE FORD ECOBOOST DIRECT INJECTION TURBO ENGINE

1l-ecoboost-engine
SkyRunner’s advanced 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine uses innovative technologies to deliver petrol engine response and refinement with the better fuel economy and torque performance associated with diesel engines. The compact and powerful new Ford EcoBoost engine boasts 125PS, delivering class-leading petrol engine CO2 emissions of 114g/km and 5.0l/100km (56.5 mpg) fuel economy.

Car Mode

With minimum weight, dynamic handling and peak performance, the SkyRunner is the ideal candidate for demanding terrain and sand dune adventures. The SkyRunner engine’s 125PS (92kW) power and 200Nm torque output rivals that of a traditional 1.6-litre petrol engine and has the highest power density of any similar production engine. Thanks to the lightweight chassis the SkyRunner accelerates to 62mph in just 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 115mph.

Flight Mode

The SkyRunner uses the latest reflex paraglider wing technology. Renowned for their extreme pitch and roll stability, the SkyRunner wing inspires confidence while retaining dynamic and responsive control. Once in the air the wing simply absorbs turbulence and provides a safe and comfortable flight. During launching, the SkyRunner’s EcoBoost engine gets you quickly off the ground with minimum effort and thanks to its innovative flywheel and pulley design counters engine vibration to deliver refinement without affecting performance, economy or emissions.

In the unlikely event of engine or wing failure the SkyRunner simply floats softly to the ground on its paraglider, or a ballistic reserve chute can be deployed.
