What is special about your car? Our car is specially designed with an innovative design, aiming at sustainability. The design is to raise awareness. This is because our country (The Netherlands) is not yet known for its sustainability. Our car has a teardrop shape to improve aerodynamics for more fuelefficiency. The black skyline represents the Netherlands, the green background represents the sustainability.

Why is fuel efficiency important to your team? We have to consider solving global warming issues by introducing innovative methods to drive more fuelefficiently. This way nature will not be harmed any further and our future generations will not suffer from our mistakes.

Who or what inspired you on the way to Eco-marathon? We were motivated to learn more about both the technical and the economical side of cars. Besides that, sustainability is always important.
