The Bugatti Veyron era finally comes to a close in the form of the 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale. And now, the VAG-owned Bugatti has released this video that takes us inside its lair in Molsheim, France to showcase how the vehicle came to life.
The production facility is unlike any other: each build room is a stunning laboratory with not a speck of dust to be seen and each part of the Veyron La Finale (as is the case with the Veyron in general) is manufactured by four- and five-person teams, tiny when compared to full-scale automakers like VAG’s own Volkswagen brand. In essence, the entire car is built by just 17 people and the whole process is overseen by a single foreman.
Perhaps the most stunning aspect of the build process is the specially-designed vehicle lift on which the La Finale sits. Its ingenious design allows the team to lift the vehicle on a myriad of various touch-points, depending on which part of the build process the car is in. Some of the lifts can actually slide fore and aft in order to sandwich various pieces of the car together. And once the work is done, the lifts magically slide back down and sit flush with the floor.
It’s a jaw-dropping process and it is definitely one of the best ways to waste 3:38 of your day. So enjoy the video.
