The 3D printed prototype lamborghini family gets the real Aventador for Christmas

Lamborghini shocked the Erie, colo., family by showing them a new Aventador S supercar.Aventador’s unexpected arrival was in recognition of the dedication of Sterling Backus, who has spent the past two years printing his own 3D printed prototype lamborghini.

While the real Aventador only spends a few holidays with family, it can at least remind you of Backus’s work direction.

From screen to street

The story begins with Sterling’s 12-year-old son Xander playing in the Forza Horizon 3 Xbox One racing game.Xander found himself choosing Aventador to play the game.

This raises a simple question from Xander to his father about whether they can build their own 3D printed prototype lamborghini for real-world use. 

As a physicist, Sterling Backus thought it would be a cool experiment and help promote science and technology to kids.

Then armed with a $900 desktop 3D printer, Sterling set out to design and print the various parts and panels needed to create a life-size replica of the prototype lamborghini. 

About 24 months later, the project is still underway, and Sterling spent about $20,000 on parts and materials to make replicas.The chassis below the body panels is made of steel, unlike the real Aventador’s v-12 engine, which is powered by the chevy v-8.

Backus has been keen to point out that this is not a direct replica of Aventador and has made some of its own design changes to each body panel.This should avoid any accusations of copyright infringement or intellectual property theft. 

Sterling Backus’s commitment to the project, documented on his special Facebook page, was enough to win lamborghini’s approval.

Katia Bassi, chief marketing and communications officer of lamborghini motors, said: “lamborghini opposes any attempt at counterfeiting.However, it’s worth mentioning the true story of this true passion, which is why we chose to tell the story of Sterling and Xander’s project in our Christmas 2019 video.”
