Nuna, the first Dutch solar car, completed the 3021 km race in 32 hours and 39 minutes. The average speed was 91.8 kilometers per hour.
It took three years for the car to be ready for the race. Ramon Martinez and Tim de Lange started designing the car in the winter of 1999; in 2001 she was at the start of the World Solar Challenge. With the first participation of TU Delft in the competition, Nuna won the World Championship in Australia.
Nuna weighed 280 kg and had an aerodynamics CdA that was slightly below 0.1. Since then, these factors have been refined every new Nuna, resulting in increasingly better times.
