This electric 3-wheeled car doesn't require charging. Created by American motoring start-up Aptera Motors in San Diego, Aptera EV is charged purely by the sun. The futuristic-looking vehicle features more than 32 square feet of solar panels that are integrated into the body. This setup allows the driver to travel up to 45 miles a day and up to 11,000 miles per year, purely using energy harnessed from the sun. The sleek, lightweight two-person vehicle is made of lightweight composites that are stronger than steel, allowing its unique body shape to slip through the air with an unheard-of drag coefficient. Its front-wheel drive vehicle can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, and its three-wheel drive model can get to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. The company began taking orders from Friday, December 4, with deliveries expected to begin next year.
Car blowing up!
A car explodes while stuck in traffic. The driver and passenger escape.
This is the world's first 3D printed powerboat. Boasting a sleek, shiny coat of paint in ‘snapper rocks blue’, MAMBO spans 6.5 meters long by 2.5 meters wide. With a dry weight of approximately 800kg, the boat is equipped with a navigation system, cork flooring, white leather seats, and 115 cv engine. The vessel was built by Italy’s Moi Composites Srl. who say their uniquely-shaped boat cannot be achieved with traditional manufacturing. Instead, it was built using Moi's Continuous Fiber Manufacturing process which uses a computer and 3D printer to simultaneously build and shape the boat by adding individual layers of composite materials that are then cured by laser. The boat was unveiled at this year's Genoa International Boat Show.
