Article :Local electric/ethanol car definitely a labour of love

I came across this article on a small Winnipeg car which resembles a HPV .
Cool project ! I wish them the best of luck .

Local electric/ethanol car definitely a labour of love - Winnipeg Free Press

I got interested when i first saw this image. I thought i was looking at the back end of a highly streamlined car .

Urbee 3d printed car

It's curious that the article makes no mention of the 3D printed body. It's supposed to be the first (or second) ever produced.
