Blade supercar.

From Divergent Microfactories. Don't go there is you want to see more about the car though. Go to The Daily They did a really great job talking about the technicals and describes the 3D printed chassis. (with video) This model was a CNG car. 0-60 in 2.6 seconds.


  1. CNG is looking way less attractive with gasoline at par. Even with oil crashing, they have kept it at $2.42 a gallon. Felt a lot better about that price when gas was kissing $5. Call me crazy, but it kind of feels like I'll see gas under a dollar per gallon again in my lifetime. DF

  2. Wow. I was wondering what was happening with that. It seemed to me that CNG had stalled a bit. I just wasn't sure why. It hardly seems worth it to hunt down a CNG station at this point when you can get gas anywhere for the same price. I don't know that I would have placed money on things turning out this way. It's kinda fascinating.

    As for gas.... I'm out on the betting. I doubt that it will get too much lower because the dollar is almost maxed out. But honestly I would never predicted it would have gotten this low. While I love low gas prices - if gas gets sub one buck - this world is going to get really sideways for a while.

    So.... how many miles to the gallon do you get with CNG? I know you are probably getting traffic mileage, but you are the only person I know doing CNG.

  3. We get 11 mpg, but when gas was at $4 that was like getting 20 - 25 mpg. Since we have a gas truck too, we can pick one or the other depending on what prices do. Fuel doesn't ever seem to run more than $500 per month and we drive all the time, so we can afford to see prices double and it wouldn't slow us down.

  4. wah menarik sekali ya artikel supercar dari printer 3D, ane baru tau deh gan...
