National Geographic Channel to debut new show "Ultimate Factories"

Ever wonder what goes on behind the creation of a supercar?

Thanks to National Geographic, now you’re going to have your chance. Beginning on October 1st, the National Geographic Channel will feature a new series called “Ultimate Factories”, a show that that gives us an unprecedented look into the world of supercars and takes us behind-the-scenes on how the cars of our dreams are created.

The month-long series will feature the making of a number of our favorite cars including the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV, the Rolls Royce Phantom, the Chevrolet Camaro, and the Porsche 911.

The first episode, which will air this Thursday, will take us inside the Lamborghini factory in SantAgata Bolognese, Italy for an up-close look at the creation of the ultra-exclusive Murcielago SV. Widely considered as the fastest Lamborghini to be built – it can reach speeds of up to 212 mph – the Murcielago SV can clock a 0-60 mph time in a mere 3.2 seconds.

Continued after the jump.

The episode will go into great detail as to how the car is made from the ground up, which, if you don’t know, is completely painted and assembled by hand. As far as the Murcielago is concerned, only 350 of this specific model will be custom-built and as we’ll find out during the show, the build is a slow and meticulous process with premium quality as the foremost objective. Judging from the number of cars that are done in a day – it’s estimated that only 2.7 cars are finished in one working day – the Murcielago SV is one for the rarest of the rare super cars.

If you want to catch the episode, tune in to National Geographic on Thursday, October 1st at 8 pm ET and be sure to keep your TiVos ready for the whole month of October. You wouldn’t want to miss a second of this can’t-miss TV special.
