The Bloodhound supersonic car is going to take a shot at going supersonic in the summer of 2015, and it is relying on rapid manufacturing to speed past the 1,000 mph speed barrier.

The tip is subject to forces as high as 4,915 lbs/ft2. To cope with such loadings, a prototype tip has been designed in titanium and will be bonded to Bloodhound's carbon fiber monocoque body.
