I.materialise is 3D printing company. For years, the company churned out concept cars years. "We make a lot of concept cars using 3D printing but we're never allowed to talk about them," says i.materialise's Joris Peels. This time is different.
First unveiled in 2008 at the Paris Motor Show, the Citroën GT is a concept car co-developed with Polyphony Digital, the studio behind Gran Turismo, and i.materialise, who did the 3D printing (see the embedded video for how 3D printing works). Fans of Gran Turismo and of stunning cars will be familiar with the Citroën GT.
Apparently, an extremely limited production number of six cars was to be released, but as of 2011, they have not surfaced.
Since enough time has passed between the concept car's debut, i.materialise is finally now able to show how it created this concept car after getting the OK. "That's why we're very happy to be able to show you how we 3D printed the interior of the Citroën GT," Peels continues.
