Ferrari 620 GT: Lots of Aluminum
Ferrari has launched the second teaser video of the 620, their 599 replacement.
In the video, there are quite a few processes between hot, molten aluminum alloy being poured into forms and an actual finished car: stamping, lamination, extrusion, etc.
It is clear that Ferrari used a lot of the stuff to save weight wherever they could.
According to autoevolution’s original article, “Aluminum was used as an alternative to carbon fiber because Ferrari wanted to keep the cost of their new GT down. Besides that, carbon fiber is difficult to fix in case of an accident.”
