- "I built a racer. It's the fastest ever."
- ―Anakin Skywalker
Anakin Skywalker's Podracer was a custom-built podracer built by a young Anakin Skywalker as a slave on Tatooine, and used to secure his freedom and the replacement hyperdrive components for Queen Amidala's ship during the Boonta Eve Classic.
The blue and silver Podracer built by Anakin Skywalker was a custom specification pair 620C racing engine made by Radon-Ulzer Repulsorlift. Skywalker's racer followed the basic design of the pod race machine, cockpit total length 3.15 meters. The engines were 7 meters in length and was smaller and slimmer than other podracers. The two high-power engines are linked by Energy binder and are structured to train the cockpit (pod) at the rear by control cable made of Steelton. The engine used by Skywalker was a waste item that Watto discarded, but developed a new type fuel spraying device and a system that efficiently fed fuel to the fuel chamber. By doing so, the thrust was greatly improved. The maximum speed of this racer reached speed 947 kilometers and was able to rise to an altitude 105 meter by Repulsor Lift.
