Our first car, Stella, did attend at the prototype class for combustion engines at Shell Eco Marathon, Rotterdam, Netherlands 2013. The car was powered by a four stroke engine fueled with petrol.
Stella was made in the spring of 2013 to compete in the Shell Eco Marathon 2013. As time was short HiGtech borrowed a mold from Chalmers Vera Team. The body was casted in fiberglass, resulting in a very stable but heavy body.
Stella’s engine is a self-made single-cylinder four-stroke engine with a displacement of 58 cc.
Stella is a solid and reliable car, but in order to reach greater heights the team felt that a new, lighter car needed to be built already for next year’s competitions, therefore Nova was built.
