It was mainly in black, with blue canopy and the stripes-styled body decals with red, blue and yellow highlights.

Dash Boy! Ten
In one storyline, it doesn't explained on how the Ray Hawk-Gamma was created, what is known is that its performance is on par with Ten's Thunder Boomerang. In another storyline, Shortly after Rei's Boomerang Gamma was destroyed by Taiga's Shadow Boomerang, the Ray Hawk-Gamma was created after Rei got the hint from how the hawk is flying.
New Generation Racer Mini 4 Kids
In one of the two storyline, the Ray Hawk-Gamma was Kakeru's first machine.
What is known is that Kakeru had shaved the weight from the Ray Hawk's bodyshell to the extreme. Unfortunately, this extreme modification has proves to be a nail in the coffin for the car as its bodyshell was destroyed in a race against Kit Kodou and his Tiger Zap.
The bodyshell was later repaired and reconstructed into the Dyna-Hawk bodyshell, and was fitted onto the Super TZ Chassis until Kakeru got the Super X Chassis from someone and the GT Parts (The front nose guard) from Mr. Kutoba, thus the Dyna-Hawk GX was born.
