Hyperloop passenger pod that could one day hit 760mph revealed...


The world's first commercial Hyperloop could be in operation as soon as 2019, ferrying passengers at near-supersonic speeds of up to 760mph. 

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), one of the companies vying to make Elon Musk's vision of futuristic transport a reality, unveiled its first full-size, passenger-carrying pod in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain on Tuesday.

Dubbed the 'Quintero One,' the massive capsule is more than 100ft long and weighs in at five tons. In a nod to Marvel Comics, HTT says the pod is built out of the firm's special 'Vibranium,' a sensor-embedded carbon fiber material.
