Epson Stylus Printer Used to Cover Bugatti Veyron
One of Epson's stylus printers has been used to produce a vinyl wrap for the Bugatti Veyron, the fastest and most expensive car in the world. Epson worked with consumables firm Avery and modifications company SkinzWraps to produce the wrapping for the Veyron from one of its Stylus Pro GS6000 printers.
It took seven days to design, print and apply the vinyl cover to the supercar, which will be on display at the Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) 2010 event in Las Vegas. "Epson is extremely excited to work with Avery and SkinzWraps to unveil what's surely the most prestigious and high-priced automobile ever to be wrapped," said Reed Hecht, product manager, Epson America.
The Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 253 mph, which it can maintain for 12 minutes before all its fuel is consumed. Last month, a 3D printer was used to produce the outer bodywork of a prototype road car, nicknamed Urbee.
