Numbered 5, 7 e 9, they are the only functional cars that were built during the project. Each explored new technologies, with BAT 7 achieving an incredibly low drag coefficient of .19, which is significantly less than any production car sold today.

The vehicles were privately owned, driven and even raced over the years by various owners until a collector bought all three of them about three decades ago.
