More and more car companies are using 3D scanning and 3D printing to build and improve its cars to ensure that all their products are as advanced as possible. On the 2014 Autosalon of Geneva, Swedish supercar designer Koenigsegg presented the world's fastest car and a large 3D printed titanium auto component.

This week, a small American-based car company called Rezvani Motors has officially unveiled a striking new super sports car: the Beast, which features 3D printed parts. Based on the lightweight Ariel Atom from the UK, the car was designed by Samir Sadikhov, who has previously created the Aston Martin DBC and Ferrari Xerzi concepts. The Beast features also a lightweight and stylish carbon-fiber body - it weights only 1,550 pounds.

The Rezvani Beast gives new meaning to the lightweight, high-performance sports car, with the help of 3D printing. Built on the Ariel Atom's platform, BEAST uses the industry's carbon fiber production methods. Each body is custom fit using 3D printing technology and CNC milling techniques. Engineers used a CNC machine to make a 3D version of the car, which they used to make a mold for all the carbon fiber panels. They have also used 3D printer to make small pieces like mirrors, lights and the front diffuser.

Thanks in part to its 1,550 lb curb weight, the BEAST 500 can sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. The BEAST 300 can reach 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds, tipping the scales at a featherlight 1,470 lbs.

In order to celebrate Rezvani's launch of the BEAST, the first two models of the BEAST 300 and BEAST 500 will be offered at a special "Launch Edition" price. For the BEAST 300 Launch Edition, the first two lucky clients will be able to purchase this high-performance roadster for only $99,500 USD. The BEAST 500 Launch Edition begins at $124,900 USD.

Fardees Rezvani, builder of the Rezvani Beast, says the Beast was designed for an affordable price, thanks to 3D printing and contract assembly in California. "We wanted to keep the costs low," he told Yahoo Autos. "Our profit margins are small, but our goal was to make it appealing to the average auto enthusiast."
