Description and History

Eye-catching in scarlet red paint, the two-seat Renault A-510 Sports Car is a fast and comfortable personal vehicle often seen in use by the civilian population aboard the SDF-1 during Space War I. After an attack upon the SFD-1 Macross by Zentradi forces, Hikaru Ichijo and Lynn Minmay were trapped inside a damaged section of the ship. After they were rescued, Minmay drove off in an A-510 Car, driven by her cousin Kaifun. A popular and stylish vehicle, the lasting influence of the A-510 can be seen in personal vehicles made in following decades. Most notably, the influence of the A-510 can be seen during the late 2030's and early 2040's when several different cars and even motorcycles appeared, taking obvious design lineage from this stylish vehicle.
