Phantom is a speed class that is featured in the Wipeout series, debuting in Wipeout 2097. Traditionally, it is the fastest speed class in the game, considerably faster than Rapier class.


Phantom Class


Phantom class was developed for the 2097 F5000 League season, bringing the sport to extraordinary speeds never before seen. Unfortunately, the speed was too much for the pilots, and the class was banned a few years later. The class returned in the F7200 League, but was more controllable.

Phantom class is the fastest, and the hardest class in most of the games. This class brings out the full power of an AG craft, reaching speeds of over 700 km/h. Pilots that can race at these speeds must be experts at craft control and have extensive knowledge of the tracks if he has any hope in finishing, let alone in first place.
