Reconsturction of a Delage racing engine using voxeljet’s 3D printing technology

  • Published on Mar 27, 2017
  • Today, rarities made by Delage such as the Type S, are considered priceless master works of automotive history. The vehicle, which is the only surviving example, took part in the 1914 French Grand Prix but after more than 100 years, the engine casting failed and was beyond repair. Only the production of a completely new engine casting offered a solution if the car was to keep running. The problem: After a hundred years, there are no spare parts, design drawings or even other engines to reference.

    You saved one of the most interesting and best car engines of all times! Where is AudiBmwMercedesPorsche?? They can't build such super engines.
