    WOW!!! That is breath taking!!! I can't begin to imagine the cost of producing one of those cars, let alone the cost of some of the equipment they use.
    I like this bit "Test track under the factory."

    Truly awesome.

    It's clean enough to be a kitchen, let alone a car factory. Could happily eat your food off the floor there!

    Look at the block, always wondered what a W looked like, didnt think it'd be double banks, thought it was literally 2 Vs next to eachother.

    That is interesting Jace, I always thought it was like that to. That must save on so much space

    As for that factory, spotless and a great insight on how they do it

    I spose all 12 pistons are driving the same crank, must push out some crazy torque!!

    Looks like the cams are synched with a chain, but internally!! They're obviously not expecting them to go wrong ever!
    Would hate to have one of them snap - just picture the invoice from VW, to split aprt the block, replace some valves, prob pistons, head, cam, chain etc etc. Ouch.

    How cool would it be to have a nice job somewhere like that & id love to be able to pick a new car id bought from the factory too Like it says in the description! You can do that with stuff like ferraris I think, fly over spend the weekend in the factory, pick it up from modena and drive it back..

    I actually cant think of anything better than that..
