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:

Nuon Solar Team Reveals Super Aerodynamic Nuna6 Solar Powered Vehicle Nuon Nuna6 Solar Car

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!

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