American physicist Sterling Backus and his son have been working in the courtyard of their home for a year and a half to create a full-scale 3D printed version of the Lamborghini Aventador supercar.
During this time, they invested about $ 20, 000 in the project and managed to print body panels, taillights, headlights and even vents from several types of plastic. To keep the car safe to drive, Backus covered some of the printed fragments with carbon fiber.
It should be noted that the engine, chassis and a number of other structural elements were assembled separately in the usual way. While the design of the parts is based on the Lamborghini Aventador, Backus said they had to significantly alter each panel in order to bring something different to the design and avoid accusations of illegal copying or industrial espionage.
