The Spacebird 42 is a vehicle from the Space Channel 5 series. It is Pudding's personal vehicle, and a race car in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed used for racing competitions.


The Spacebird 42 is a green and yellow vehicle. It was designed to look like a bird, as it was originally just a hovercraft. It made its debut in the Sonic series in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed as Pudding's personal vehicle on the racetrack. On the sides of the vehicle, it bears a yellow "42", signifying Pudding's relations with Channel 42.

Pudding's vehicle has different appearances while in different modes:

  • Boat Mode: As a boat, Pudding's vehicle becomes more curvy towards the bottom in an upright position, poking up from the water.
  • Car Mode: As a car, Pudding gains a set of four blue wheels, having the Space Channel 5 logos written in yellow print all around it. The Spacebird's blue "beak" will also open.
  • Plane Mode: As a plane, Pudding's vehicle appears to look almost like her original vehicle, except she sits inside and not on the outside like a bike. The Spacebird's blue "beak" will also open.


The Spacebird 42 only appears as Pudding's primary vehicle in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The vehicle itself has the following statistics:

  • The Spacebird 42 is the one of only two vehicles in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed that originated from its user's original franchise, the other being the Crazy Taxi.
  • Although Pudding dresses in her Part 1 outfit and uses archive footage from the original game in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Pudding drives her green variant Spacebird 42 from Space Channel 5: Part 2 as opposed to her pink variant from the original game.
  • The wheels on the Spacebird 42 read "Space Channel 5" although Pudding works for Channel 42.
