In the drawing,the roofline is not represented as a phantom line once it gets to the rear structure (wing).It just disappears.I'm not certain how to interpret it.It does appear as background light is shining through.

The dotted lines in the 3-view are internally inconsistent. Compare the traverse lines in the top and side views. Drawn by RWA/TAT and checked by... nobody?

I'm more curious about the front end and doors on that black one. Do they butterfly open? Time to drop by the local Mauck dealership.

I do now see a sliver of light in both the images I posted and the one ennored posted.

The depth/length of the wing is just so deep it prevents very clear photos from being taken.

It's a "Mauck MSV". The doors hinge at the a-pillars in a semi-gullwing style.

Is that an updated of the Bochum University car? The caption says "2013 Powercore Suncruiser solar racing car". Here's some additional images:
