This is not the original version of the Italian car. The car will use the V8 engine, which was borrowed from the American sports coupe Corvette. Work on the “printing” of the car began a year and a half.

Despite the fact that the Lamborghini Aventador was introduced more than eight years ago, this Italian supercar still attracts a lot of attention due to its wild style. Physicist Sterling Backus and his son like this car so much that he decided to print it on a hefty 3D printer. It is reported that they worked on the project for a total of almost a year and a half, giving it about an hour a day, for a total of 20,000 dollars.

The idea of ​​“printing out” on the Aventador 3D printer in my garage arose from video games, when Stirling and his son were playing in Forza Horizon 3, then the question was asked whether it was possible to build such a car.

With the exception of the chassis, gearbox, engine and some other structural elements, the whole body was created using a 3D printer and 220 thermoplastic coils. Even the headlights, taillights, vents and other interior details were printed using 3D technology, most of them made of Kevlar or carbon fiber.

Speaking of the engine, the car will not have a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12, like a real Aventador – instead, the 5.7-liter LS1 will be used, from the 2003 sports Chevy Corvette coupe equipped with a pair of turbochargers. Transmission borrowed from the Porsche 911.

As for the chassis, it was created from scratch by a Sterling with a cantilever winding system of the suspension, while some parts were taken from a real Lamborghini. Original parts include door windows, side window glass, wiper arms, rear view mirror, as well as the steering wheel and some switches taken from Audi.
