Currently undergoing final testing, the SLS AMG has a super-lightweight aluminium spaceframe
body and the same-style gullwing doors as the SLR, which in turn are based on those of the 300SL of half a century ago.
The team aims to use a steel tubular spaceframe
to give the most stiffness and strength for the minimum weight.
Mechanically similar to the coupe, the Roadster's spaceframe
has been strengthened to compensate for the loss of a roof.
One was an aluminum spaceframe
. Another used a steel subframe with plastic fenders and aluminum decklid, tailgate and doors.
Believed to be the first self-propelled howitzer built on a spaceframe
chassis (hence the light weight), it can travel at 80 km/hr, with a cruising range of 600 km.
The car's aluminium spaceframe
chassis, and its composite material `clamshell' body panels, allow drivers to reach the sort of speeds that would have your average fighter pilot digging their fingers into the dash.
The Ford Contour has a lightweight aluminum spaceframe
built from extruded components fitted together like Lego blocks (see "Contour: The Shape of Cars to Come?" May 1991, pages 36-42).
Le train de cavits est insr puis accroch dans un cadre support appel spaceframe

It has a light, high performance spaceframe
chassis and retractable hard top.
It features the manufacturer's spaceframe
mid-engined chassis with double-wishbone suspension and four ventilated brake discs.
Pontiac's Fiero introduced the idea of a steel spaceframe
clad with plastic outer panels, and this was repeated with the droop-snoot Chevrolet Lumina APV and Pontiac Transport minivans.
