3D printing transforms vehicles

By 2050, car tuning is turning into a hobby for nostalgic youth. Street-racing movies from the early 21st century and the associated aesthetics are experiencing a new lease on life. 3D printing — long used in construction, medicine, design, and other fields — is spurring the revival.

Compared with modding in the 2000s, the scope for creativity is now far wider; any detail goes from the sketch pad to real life in just a couple of hours. There is no longer any need to scour online flea markets for coveted bumpers or spoilers (although fans of authenticity still do so). If there is no 3D printer at home, no worries —many specialized companies can print and deliver a new car body.

Just as it was 50 years ago, tuning is primarily a means of self-expression — custom modifications attract admiring — or, more often, puzzled — looks from passers-by. One such bold brainchild is a vehicle based on the golden ratio. Its creators wanted to honor the memory of Leonardo da Vinci — in 2052, the world will celebrate the 600th anniversary of the birth of the great artist, thinker, and scientist.
