Man uses 3D printer to make a Lamborghini

A 3D printer can produce just about everything these days.

Even a luxury sports car.

A preteen asked his dad if their 3D printer could make a Lamborghini.

A Colorado physicist and his 11-year old son did just that, according to WCNC-TV.

They made a full-size, working model of a Lamborghini Aventador.

The car doesn’t have Lamborghini-certified parts. It does look like one though.

It is powered by a Corvette V8 engine. They used parts from a junkyard to fill in some gaps.

The father, Sterling Backus, says his interest in cars helped him more with this project than his job as a physicist.
