[SOUND] A sports car with a loud engine is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think eco friendly cars.
This is the Blade, a car that's made in a very different way to other vehicles.
Being environmentally friendly starts long before it hits the road.
What we've tried to do is dematerialize auto manufacturing meaning radically reduce the materials and energy that go into a car.
The Blade claims to be the first supercar made from 3D-printed components.
There are 70 structural nodes that are used to connect carbon fiber panels and tubing for the [UNKNOWN] [SOUND]
The car took just eight months from design to production, whereas traditional car manufacturing takes several years.
Well, the cool thing about this is
That we're building modular structures that will be completely validated and safety tested and can be reconformed to be whatever shape and whatever body you want.
With a 700 horsepower, four cylinder engine, it can hit 60 miles per hour in just 2.2 seconds.
Other cars are being even more ambitious about using 3D printing like the LM3D from Local Motors.
75% of the vehicle will be made from 3D printed parts.
