An anonymous reader writes "A group of 16 engineers named “Group T” have unveiled a racing car “Areion”. The group is competing in Formula Student 2012 challenge, and the car they have unveiled is world’s first 3D printed race car. The Areion is not wholly 3D printed but most of it actually is. It was tested on Hockenheim race circuit and went from zero to 100km/h in just four seconds. Maximum speed Areion achieved on the same circuit was 141km/h. The car is eco-friendly as well as a motivation for innovative fields of technology. Cutting-edge technologies integrated into their environmentally friendly race car included an electric drive train, bio-composite materials and 3D printing on a big scale with Materialise."
