Pictured: Next-generation manufacturing takes on a 50-year-old icon as ORNL researchers transform this classic sports car into a 3-D printed laboratory on wheels. The 3-D printed Shelby Cobra incorporates “plug and play” components such as new engine, battery and fuel cell technologies; hybrid system designs and power electronics and wireless charging systems, allowing researchers to easily and quickly test out innovative ideas in a driving laboratory.
