Kismet Hood Ornament

Hood ornaments, like the Mercedes three-point star or the Porsche crest, are easily recognizable symbols of stature. Billionaire owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team and the 308-foot Lürssen-built Kismet, Shahid Khan, decided his superyacht needed such a symbol. So thanks to the 3-D printing artisans at Materiallise, she now sports a ferocious-looking, 220-pound Jaguar made of 5,000 printed layers, and covered in a metallic-looking protective coating. The cat certainly makes a statement. For some extra wow, (because, you know, why not?) the eyes illuminate with a deep-blue hue and the strength of six 100-watt light bulbs.
