The Blue Nova racer was introduced to the high performance racing scene in 3067. Priced at 80% of its nearest competitor, the Blue Nova uses a smaller utility vehicle engine developed in 2750 by Outworlds Motors. The creative use of a custom exhaust system makes the engine sound more powerful than it actually is. The owners and drivers of the Blue Nova don't seem to care though as it has been one of Durandel-British's best sellers. It is available as a hardtop and a convertable.[1][2]
