Secretary Moniz Test Drives the 3D-Printed Shelby Cobra

You are here

The 50th anniversary Shelby Cobra was printed at the Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory using the BAAM (Big Area Additive Manufacturing) machine and is intended as a “plug-and-play” laboratory on wheels. The vehicle will allow research and development of integrated components to be tested and enhanced in real time, improving the use of sustainable, digital manufacturing solutions in the automotive industry. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz recently took the Shelby Cobra out for a test drive to experince its innovative features first-hand.
 
The overall project was supported by the Energy Department's Advanced Manufacturing Office and Vehicle Techolologies Office.
