Rolls-Royce Could 3D-Print Bodies of Future Cars

Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said recently that the fabled luxury carmaker use 3D printing to create the exteriors of future custom models. “We have done some 3D printing,” Müller-Ötvös said to Car and Driver at the launch event for the all-new 2018 Phantom, adding: “I think that our long-term goal is to print bigger parts; maybe even bodies are possible.”

3D-printed Rolls-Royce bodies wouldn’t lower prices. In fact, according to Müller-Ötvös, the carmaker would rather look to use it to help create bespoke project cars for its wealthiest clients. He cited the $13 million Rolls-Royce Sweptail as an example of the sort of custom vehicle the carmaker has plenty of demand for, but simply hasn’t been able to crank out very easily.
