The Sonic Saber, much like its sister car Magnum Saber, featuring the curved, fully cowled bodyshell that covering the wheels. There's the rear body roller attachments in which user can install the 10 mm rollers on it. The bodyshell is mainly in white, with red and green trims on it.
The differences between it and Magnum Saber is that the Sonic Saber has the curve-like decals on its bodyshell and has the large, tilted rear spoiler and large winglets. Furthermore, it has the 'Retsu' (烈) emblem on the front of the bodyshell.
The original Sonic Saber comes with the blue-colored curve side-guard attachment and is equipped with the neon yellow small-diameter 3-spoke Fully Cowled-type wheels paired with high-profile slick tires. The sub-parts of the chassis for the original were molded in green.
The Premium variant, however, was equipped with the normal yellow 5-spoke Saber-type low-profile wheels with low-profile slick tires. It comes with the reinforced chassis made of Polycarbonate-mixed ABS plastic and much like the original Sonic Saber, the sub-parts of the chassis for this variant were molded in green.
Only the Premium variant comes with a standard motor.

Like his Super Astute Jr. before it, the Sonic Saber is specifically tuned for cornering and acceleration, with flat tires, large rear spoiler, extended front bumper parts and the Torque-Tuned Motor equipped. As such it has better cornering stability compared to Go's Magnum Saber.
The Sonic Saber, along with Magnum Saber, were destroyed all together as both cars fell off the track at Dr. Ogami's lab into the lava during the Seiba brothers' race against J's Proto-Saber JB.
In the anime, it was later revealed that Retsu still has the badly-aged Torque-Tuned Motor that the Sonic Saber used in its debut race and use it in his Vanguard Sonic during the Tokichi Cup until it finally stops working.
