• How To Build The Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE In 60 Seconds: Video

It’s kind of like watching ants build a race car.

Just a month ago, Aston Martin announced the 2016 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE along with a new partnership with TOTAL and Dunlop. When we reviewed the new Vantage GTE, we talked a lot about what makes it such a special machine, but we didn’t go into much about how it was actually built. When you look at the car as a finished project, it’s hard to imagine just what actually went into getting the end result. Now, you’ll have a little more insight into that process by watching this minute-long video of the V8 Vantage GTE being hand built.

The video is, of course, played at high speed so that the entire process takes just 60 seconds, but its long enough for you to get the gist of just how many people and how much work goes into hand building one of these track-bound monsters. If you’ve ever been a fan of taking tours of manufacturing plants or watching the documentaries on TV, then you’ll love this video. In fact, you’ll probably watch it a couple of times and notice something new each time.

With that said, go ahead and click play and watch for yourself. I wonder how hard it is for the all of these people to work together on one car at the same time. Sometimes I have issues with just one person getting in my way when wrenching, let alone five or six others. It takes a special breed of mechanic to work in a manufacturing facility like this. Enjoy the video!

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read full bio
