It was mainly in red, with blue/yellow stripes and silver paints on it.

Following the race in chapter 8 of the manga where Leon's Black Hawk got damaged when it was pulled into the tornado that was generated by the circuit, it was repaired and upgraded into the Synchro-Master by professor Kubota.

It was later revealed, however, that unlike Bui's Variatron which retain the predecessor's Brain Core, The Synchro-Master has the new-type of Brain Core known as the Synchro Core, which make the car much more responsive to the racer's commands as it synchronizes with the racer's thought.
