Technical Specs

Key Data

 In line with the Formula Student trend of recent years, the nb013 consists of an undertray and front-and-rearwing.
Another conceptual highlight is the rear end of the car, which is made entirely of carbon fiber instead of a tubular steel frame like the rest of the monocoque. In this year special attention was paid to the packaging, since in addition to the proven Kawasaki four-cylinder engine, the electric drivetrain of the eb013 sister vehicle also had to be accommodated in the same monocoque.
