The Nx1000 was the very first anti-gravity craft ever developed. It was a result of Pierre Belmondo's extensive research into anti-gravity technology.

It made its first, and only known flight on 14 April 2035 in the Nevada desert, and was piloted by Belmondo himself.

Background[edit | edit source]

When we gathered in the searing heat of the Nevada desert, we expected perhaps a crudely built prototype model and some embarrassed shuffling on the part of the discredited scientists. Instead we were met by the Nx1000 anti-gravity vehicle which flew across the special track so smoothly and with such speed that jaws promptly dropped, and from somewhere across the hills came the sound of words being eaten. It was the government officials who looked uncomfortable as the world's press asked, "Who are the fraudsters now?"

Overview[edit | edit source]

Nothing is known about the craft's capabilities. As the first anti-gravity ship, however, it is expected to be below-average by the future standards set during the Anti-Gravity Racing Championships of 2048. After all, the Nx1000 was never specifically designed to be a racing ship, which also featured no weapons technologies, and was meant to be a vehicle that demonstrated the application of anti-gravity technology.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This ship is not playable in any of the games. The picture shown above appears to be concept art from Wipeout Pure, however.
  • The ship is a reference to the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, where said vehicle was said to be the first-known automobile, and that the Nx1000 was the first-ever anti-gravity vehicle, made 149 years apart.
  • The ship may possibly be a precursor to AG Systems ships, as it was developed, designed and flown by Pierre Belmondo himself. He would establish the company five years later, in 2040, and that the design of the team's FX300/350/400 ships might have been inspired by this.
