A true petrol-head has gone to great lengths, and great ink cartridges expense, to replace a Ford Mustang he had to sell in order to purchase an engagement ring.

Jonathan Brand managed to print off hundreds of sheets of paper on a wide format printer all with various parts of the car embossed upon them before painstakingly gluing them together to form what is an impressive replica of the famous car.

Mr Brand managed to complete the testing project using a 3D model created on his computer and a large-format printer. What is arguably more impressive is that the model wasn't created based on anything other than memory.

Technology website Human Invent noted: "Given the large amount of printed paper involved, and the cost of ink cartridges, we’re wondering whether Brand could have actually bought his original Ford Mustang back again?"

The finished piece of art is called One Piece at a Time, a nod to Johnny Cash's song about a Detroit worker who steals Cadillac parts and then assembles them piece by piece. Arguably an easier feat than what Mr Brand completed.
