From the creative mind of the automotive designer Ayoub Ahmad was born theHV-001, an entirely 3D printed supercar.
Innovation is the real key to its realization, which required the commitment of more than one algorithm. The hyper-modern look and the sheen of the material do nothing but remind us where it comes from: from generative design.
The HV-001 looks almost like the skeleton of a car, with essential and well-calibrated elements. For the first time, the car's chassis becomes its own bodywork, with no external covers or additions.
An exoskeleton car
The goal of Ayoub Ahmad is to obtain an exoskeletal structure with maximum strength and aerodynamics. Using as little material as possible, the HV-001 is beautiful and incredibly functional.
The supercar designed by artificial intelligence features hypnotic open spaces and connective pillars at points subject to gravitational stress, excessive physical loads or mechanical pressure. The vehicle is practically equipped with a mesh structure which helps to reduce its weight, making it more energy efficient.
A 3D printed supercar
The complex design of the car made it necessary to rely on 3D printing. As if to say: if a robot draws it, a robot must build it. In fact, it would not be possible to obtain an equally precise result without the use of a modern printer.
From top to bottom, the HV-001 is incredibly complex.
The supercar's wheels have 3D printed organic rims, while the interior echoes the same minimalist style as the exterior. Each element exudes coherence and elegance, for a final result that is certainly noteworthy.
Ayoub Ahmad's supercar is endowed with great strength and great speed.
Its defined profile features a number of attractive air intakes that keep the vehicle cool even when it reaches top speed. The flaps on the back help to channel the air and improve the stability of the car.
It is likely that the HV-001 is powered by an electric or hydrogen transmission, but we are not yet absolutely sure. The car is still only a concept, a bold project that may never see the light.
Or, in turn, give birth to a new generation of supercars: the next.
