103 year old Delage Type-S Grand Prix car brought back to life with 3D scanning and printing
The last-surviving 1914 Delage Type-S has been resurrected with 3D printing. The 103 year-old car, currently in Australia, has laid dormant for three years since its engine block cracked in 2014. With no original drawings and no replacement parts, it seemed that the classic car may have had its day. Now, the engine is running just as it was over a century ago in the 1914 Lyon Grand Prix.
One of only three ever manufactured, the car was brought to Australia in the 1920s, while the other two were melted down for World War One munitions. This meant that its one-of-a-kind status was both a blessing and a curse.
