There are multiple parts on the GT86 car made from Additive Manufacturing. The layout of the car is very sleek and there is not an abundancy of space, just like a true racing series car, which creates a packaging challenge. There are also very high demands on the car to achieve its performance, especially with cooling the brakes. Additive Manufacturing was the best solution to obtain the unique shapes of the required parts. In addition, TMG has produced around 30 of these cars so far, so Additive Manufacturing is a cost effective solution, as they can directly print the parts for use in place of machining a tool for this limited series production.
