The Areion

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