The 2010 car is the most recent solar car produced by the team. It was completed in 2010, and is the primary vehicle used by the team for races and other public events. It has competed in three American Solar Challenge and five Formula Sun Grand Prix races since its debut.
The car is not likely to compete in any future races due to its age and new regulations making it more costly to maintain.
- The car is the first three-wheeled design produced by the team.
- The car is one of only a few three-wheeled designs with two powered wheels.
- The car is numbered 20 because it was completed for the team's 20th anniversary in 2010. All of our other cars are numbered 786; the numbers you would push on a phone's numpad to type out "SUN".
- The car is considered by the State of Michigan, for registration purposes, to be an "Experimental Motorcycle".
