It is crazy to think that a car can be 3D printed, so it was only fitting that Divergent 3D's Blade – the world's first 3D-printed production supercar – was printed by the world's fastest 3D metal printer from SLM Solutions.

As the cost of 3D printing turns out to be more cheap and available, more organizations are putting resources into the innovation. Divergent 3D is one of those organizations and, to demonstrate to the world what it has, the company created The Blade: a mid-engined 3D printed supercar.

The Blade is capable of going from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.2 seconds, it weighs just 1,400 pounds and is powered by a 4-cylinder 700 horsepower bi-fuel internal combustion engine that is capable of using either gasoline or compressed natural gas as fuel.
The car chassis is made up of approximately 70 3D printed aluminium nodes, and it took only 30 minutes to build the chassis by hand. The chassis itself weighs just 61 pounds.
Have a look at the video below to see more about The Blade.
