No this is not some clickbait title to get people to read. A company called Divergent provides a disruptive new approach to auto manufacturing that incorporates 3D printed joints, which they call a NODE, connecting carbon fiber structural materials that results in an industrial strength chassis that can be assembled in a matter of minutes.
Not only is it the most environmentally friendly way to manufacture a supercar but the company claims their 3D Printed supercar can do a 0-60 mph time of “around” 2 seconds with a car weighing in at 1,400 pounds.
The creation is called, The Blade. Not only are the exterior parts manufactured from a 3D printer but also uses 3D-printed components for all the interior pieces aswell!
Powerwide will come from a 4 cylinder turbocharged 700bhp engine and the whole idea is from a former Goldman Sachs executive called Kevin Czinger. Kevin is no stranger to car manufacturing having previous tried his hand at another business creating electric cars but after raising $200million and only selling 100 units he stepped down from that business to create this one.
