It is the evolution of the Mk3 model. It has the following measurements: 5.73 meters long, 3.62 meters wide and 1.44 meters long, and weighs 950 kilos, according to the El Español page. The first prototype appeared in 2019 and it was not until 2021 when the Mk3 model was made public, which has made 350 flights.

Now, the new model has a chassis that imitates Formula 1 race cars, with a carbon fiber monocoque, air intakes and front and rear wings. It also has sensors, cameras and communication devices.

Instead, the new Mk4 model has included a 1,000 kW hydrogen turbogenerator to power the batteries and engines. It also features a Thunderstrike engine that features “a unique combustor made using 3D printing techniques developed in the space industry.”
