    SpaceX chief executive Elon Musk has released the footage of an epic Hyperloop pod run.

    Elon Musk has released a video showing a German team called Warr from Munich winning a competition against other university teams. Warr managed to get its Hyperloop pod reached a speed over 200 mph at the SpaceX headquarters in California, the US.

    The German university team managed to develop a pod that can reach faster speeds than the official Hyperloop One pod.

    ​The Hyperloop concept was proposed by US billionaire Elon Musk in 2012. The technology provides for the high-speed transportation of passengers and goods in tubes.

    New vehicles, powered by solar energy, will be twice as fast as the plane and three-four times faster than high-speed trains. The Hyperloop One and the Hyperloop Transportation Technologies are engaged in the project realization.
