Last month's question:
Every two years the University of Minnesota Solar Vehicle Project (UMNSVP) researches, designs, and constructs a solar vehicle. On July 19, 2013 the team of undergraduate engineering students unveiled Daedalus— the newest U of M solar-hybrid car and also the first-ever two-seater car that balances practicality with efficiency. The team will compete in the Cruiser class of the 2013 World Solar Challenge this October—a 3,000km race across Australia.
Daedalus is the tenth vehicle constructed by UMNSVP. What was the name of the first U of M solar car constructed to compete in the 1993 GM Sunrayce competition?
