It rockets from 0-60mph in 5.6 seconds and reaches 155mph before an electronic speed limiter says "that's fast enough". It handles so well, the G-forces might make you lose your lunch before the Z4 loses its grip on the road. To manufacture such an artful instrument of automotive pleasure requires three super factories.
The first factory, in the Bavarian heartland of Landshut, Germany, casts the automotive industry's first magnesium composite crankcase, which results in the world's lightest six-cylinder crankcase. The second factory is in Munich, Germany which takes the lightweight crankcase and precision assembles a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that delivers 255 horsepower. The lean German muscle is then shipped to a third factory -- in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, USA. This last plant is a forerunner in environmental innovation, being the world's first automotive factory to recycle landfill methane gas from rotting trash to power its plant.
Now onto the sleek and raw power of the Corvette Z06, the fastest most powerful production Corvette every built. Visit the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the only location in the world where a Z06 is built from start to finish in 36 hours.
The materials used to make the sports car's body and frame are more technologically advanced than what is commonly used in a racecar. Every Z06 engine is hand assembled by one builder and the structure of the sports car has been painstakingly crafted to be lightweight. It is the most aerodynamically efficient Corvette ever, travelling almost half a kilometer in less than 12 seconds at two hundred kilometers per hour.
All these components make the Corvette Z06 a fierce competitor in the sports car world, surpassing most in road performance and handling.

Ferrari An Emotional Drive
" It's the plus that we put on the car in order to give this kind of car a
" That plus is the unique way they build cars at Maranello. Where else but
inside the Ferrari factory do you find trees to brighten the spirit and
some of the most famous examples of the brand to stir the soul."
" State-of--the-art, emotion to drive, technology, innovation, and a unique
piece of art. So, this is a common goal for each Ferrari car."
" There are no public tours of the Ferrari factory. Maybe that's because
they don't want you to ever see a Ferrari moving so slow. Each car stops at
more than 30 different assembly stations for up to an hour. There is no
rush. Part of making a Ferrari is making it hard to get. Total production
is intentionally limited to 5400 cars a year."
" If you think that most of our customers wait over 20 months to get in
touch, to take deliver of their car. That's one of the, you know, the
measure. You have to understand how deep is the link, the relationship
between our cars and our customers."
" Building a Ferrari is remarkably high tech. Robots paint each aluminum
body without any human workers in sight. The engine is a special part of
any Ferrari, and watching them being built is no exception. One technician
builds 1 entire engine from start to finish. Crafting the heart of the
Ferrari especially for their newest car, the 599 GTB Fiorano, is a very
" The engine which is the V12 engine, most powerful that we add into
production today. The engine is coming directly from the Enzo Ferrari and
it delivers 620 horsepower."
" The V12 is built by both hand and machine. A robot drops each valve seat
into super-cooled liquid to microscopically shrink the metal while another
machine heats the engine block to make it expand ever so slightly. Then, a
third robot soaks the whole assembly to match temperatures and fuse the
pieces together. The fit is perfect. Wait is the enemy of all super sports
cars. Each new Ferrari car is an aluminum body over an aluminum space frame
and each car coming down the line is unique."
" What is different from car to car is the way you can configure your car.
16 different colors, 12 different genuine leathers, colorful interior, and
8 different carpets. On top of this, to configure the trimming, for
instance, for dashboard or door panel and we got light aluminum, dark
aluminum, carbon fiber. "
" Years of mind-blowing number add up all the color, trim, and
factory-installed options multiply the different combinations by your
choice of the F430 Coupe or convertible, the 612 4-seater, or the new 599
GTB and there are about 4 million different ways to build a Ferrari, and
the factory will build whatever you want as long as it's still a Ferrari. "
" In some cases, we have very strange requests, adding some doors, adding
some hatchback style. I mean, in some cases, they really want to change the
style of this car. So, I mean, we have to say yes, we have to say no."
" The most popular Ferrari color is red, Ferrari red. It is the only shade
of red you can get."
" We have a limit that we put"
