"I built a racer. It's the fastest ever."
Anakin Skywalker[3]

Anakin Skywalker's Podracer was a Podracer custom-built by a young Anakin Skywalker as a slave on Tatooine. It was used to secure his freedom and the replacement hyperdrive components for Queen Amidala's ship during the Boonta Eve Classic.[3]


The blue and silver Podracer, built by Anakin Skywalker, was equipped with a custom specification pair of 620C racing engines made by Radon-Ulzer Repulsorlift.[5] Skywalker's racer followed the basic design of other podracing machines, with two high-powered engines hauling a small cockpit behind them.[6] The engines were linked by an energy binder and connected to the cockpit with control cables manufactured by Steelton.[4] The vehicle was smaller and slimmer than other Podracers. The cockpit's total length was 3.15 meters and the engines were 7 meters in length.[6] While the engines were originally waste items discarded by Watto, Skywalker developed a new type of fuel spraying device and a system that efficiently fed fuel to the fuel chamber which greatly improved the thrust.[5] The Podracer reached a maximum speed of 947 kilometers per hour and was able to rise to an altitude of 105 meters with the help of repulsorlifts.[4]
