Six Weeks To Print!

Watch This Car Be Printed

Developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which is backed by the U.S. Department of Energy, it took six weeks to print a car. And not just any car, but the Shelby Cobra, a roadster that was introduced by Carroll Shelby in 1962, and went out of production in 1968, with limited updated models. The result is less 1,000 original Shelby Cobras.

This cobra was printed in complete working condition, with an electric motor, which is illuminating the cheaper and more energy efficient techniques the auto industry is moving towards. It will be on display at the North American International Auto show in Detroit, Michigan.
