Lexus is using an automated, laser-guided giant 3D loom (video at New Scientist TV) to weave fiberglass and carbon fiber parts for its Lexus LFA supercar (h/t World Net Daily’s Technet).  Parts thus produced will reportedly be stronger and lighter and metal alloy parts.  Moreover, the weaving process is said to be more efficient by using fifty percent less material than more traditional manufacturing processes.

Lexus will reportedly produce only 310 of these 325 km/h cars, all of which have been spoken for by June 2010.
