Just about everything can be printed with a 3D printer nowadays. We’ve seen 3D printed food, snowboards and toys all come fresh from a printer. Now, Divergent Microfactories has created the first ever 3D printed supercar, the Blade.

The Blade looks like a futuristic car from a sci-fi movie and sports a 700 horsepower bi-fuel turbocharged Evo motor that can switch seamlessly from compressed natural gas to gasoline. It was born out of the concern for the environment after seeing the environmental consequences of building electric cars. The Blade gets its modular chassis from 3D-printed aluminum nodes and aerospace carbon fiber rods, with them weighing a total of just 102 pounds when it is all said and done. The Blade’s total weight is just 1,400 pounds.
