Cars Made of Aluminum

I came across an interesting claim from Audi. Audi has patented its Aluminum space frame design. It says, Audi is the only car manufacturer in the world to use complete Aluminum parts for production cars.

But I can name many auto companies having 100% Aluminum frames.

Do you support Audi's claims?
Of course Aluminum is the lightest material, so for the fast movement of vehicle Aluminum frames are used.. 😐

Yeah how can Audi claim a patent as many auto companies are using Aluminum?

Engine blocks and mountings are usually made of aluminum alloys these days, at least in middle-class to high-end automobiles. The only other mainframe part left is the chessis plus space frames. As the article states, Acura (made by Honda) introduced an all-aluminum chessis and space frame before Audi did.

rkvasan68 The information posted by aarthivg and you is relevant in the sense that it relates with aluminum. It many times happen that a thread initially posted for some cause makes up some other good idea. Here we are getting some information on Al- vehicles. Let the discussions proceed.
Issue ok.... any one is ready with an idea that, Y audi applied for patent for its Aluminum space frame design....?😏
