Aston Martin recently revealed its DBR22, a V12-engined two-seater, at 2022 Monterey Car Week in California. The sportscar features an additively manufactured aluminium rear subframe produced by Divergent Technologies, Torrance, CA.

The teams at Divergent and Aston Martin collaborated to make parts for the DBR22’s subframes, according to Lukas Czinger, senior VP Divergent. Aluminium components were additively manufactured prior to being joined together to make the full assembly.

“Technology is pivotal in the construction of DBR22, with extensive use of carbon fiber throughout, and the use of 3D printing for the manufacture of a structural component,” said Roberto Fedeli, Aston Martin chief technical officer in a statement. 

“As such,” Fedeli adds, “DBR22 showcases our unique capabilities, with world-class design combined with an agile, intelligent approach to engineering and production. For a car that was designed to celebrate the ultimate bespoke customisation service, the engineering developments mean DBR22 truly has the dynamic theatre to match, ensuring the drive is just as addictive as its looks.”
