This is an electric concept car, suitable for 2040, with 3D printing being an important part of it. Ok, 3D prints aren’t new to us, but the capacity of 3D printing developed by Luis Cordoba is something different.

The great thing about it is that if any part of Firanse R3 gets damaged, it could be easily re-projected and printed again. This makes the car’s parts reusable and the possible damages – not so scary anymore.
