You wouldn’t download a car, would you? Ivan Sentch of Auckland, New Zealand would and is currently doing so. He is currently in the process of using a 3-D printer to recreate the classic Aston Martin DB4.
Its easy to see why Sentch picked the DB4 for this project. He is an avid Aston Martin fan and only 1,200 examples of the car were made and currently sell for around a few hundred thousand. So, if Sentch ever wanted his own DB4, he would either have to fork up a small fortune or do what he is currently doing.
He is creating the car by printing out individual 4×4-inch fiberglass sections and gluing them together. He says he is about 72% done with more than 2,500 molds being created. Once the exterior is finished, then it is on to the tricky part: the interior.
Sentch says he has spent about $2,000 on plastic for the printing process and is basing the car on a Nissan Skyline. (He gets extra brownie points for the Skyline.) He plans on creating a mold out of the body once it is finished, but he doesn’t plan on a road-ready version being finished for another 4-5 years.
