Lamborghini created with 3D printer

A Colorado physicist is putting his scientific expertise to a practical purpose — using a 3D printer to build a Lamborghini with his 11-year-old son.

Erie resident Sterling Backus and his son, Xander, started work on their full-size, working model of an Italian su-percar — specifically the Lamborghini Aventador — when the boy asked his father if it was possible.

Sterling Backus said his background as a “gear head55 has thus far been more helpful than his training as a physicist. The car won’t be a proper Lamborghini, it contains a Corvette V8 engine and various parts procured from a junkyard, including Porsche components, but Backus said it will look like the real thing.

The father and son recently posted a video of the vehicle going for a short drive test. The duo said they hope their project will inspire more kids to get interested in STEM education.
