5 Coolest Car Factories in the World
There’s an old adage that likens things to “watching sausage being made,” or seeing what goes into a product will make you less likely to buy something. While such is the case with many things, the car industry — a multi-billion dollar industry in an ever-changing, competitive selling landscape — has deemed this is decidedly not so. Instead, car companies and engineers tend to skew the opposite direction, believing that putting production and precision on display encourages investment and ownership. Read on to find out more about the five car companies that do this better than the others.
Founded in 1985, Wiesmann is a German automobile manufacturer of “puristic sports cars.” Based in Dülmen, Germany, every car that leaves the Wiesmann factory is totally unique; an expression of the future owner’s lifestyle and personality. Although each Wiesmann car is worked on for a total of approximately 350 hours, a tour takes you through the entire production process in one hour. Stops include electronics — where entire cabling is done by hand — and the factory’s own tannery. The best part? The manufacturing plant is shaped like a gecko, after the company’s logo, because “Wiesmann cars stick to the road like geckos stick to the wall.”
