A photo tour of the Transparent Factory in Dresden: Boing Boing points us to this amazing photographic tour of the factory in Dresden where Volkswagen builds their Phaeton luxury car. Leave it to the Germans to completely transcend the auto factory assembly line and turn it into something more. They’re not kidding when they say these cars are “hand built.”
I have visited the Phaeton assembly plant in Dresden several times, and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. The building and grounds are beautiful, and the whole process of both making and selling Phaetons is totally different than that for any other car in the world.
