wow...
looks like solar cell on the back?

Doesn't really look like an .07 with all of the right angles and the front wheels sticking down.

They now have the Nuna 6 which is a little lower drag, but no Cd mentioned that I noticed:

It looks very much like a Cd of 0.07. it's a solar car -- the large flat surface is critical.

Humorously, I think the birds would like it!

The deck looks like an aircraft carrier!

As before mentioned; the looks somewhat don't match cd claims!

wow. that looks CLEAN to me.

I believe it has a very low CD. Simple, elegant.....

This looks a whole like the U of M solar car mold I found on campus recently.

These vehicles often look similar ;)
Same or similar solutions to the same problems, within the constraints of the competition rules.
