Aston Martin DB4

Ivan Sentch is a software engineer and, by using a 3D printer, he has printed a 1961 Aston Martin DB4.

Sound crazy? It kind of is. Snetch uses different plastics to print the mold for the car, after which he will create a fiberglass exterior for his “vintage” car.

The best part is, the cost for the plastics he has used so far has been a meager $2000. At an auction or collector’s showroom, a DB4 can fetch over $1 million. The idea of 3D printing cars and creating replica’s has completely changed the way in which people can re-create or replicate famous cars.

Using an uncomplicated, consumer-level 3D printer, people all over the world can easily, and cheaply create these replicas in their own garages.

Although Snetch’s Aston Martin is not complete yet, he estimates that it will take round about another 5 years to completely finish the job – and by this he means that his Aston Martin will be ready to hit the road!

We’ll definitely keep an eye out for this one!
