Ever wonder what kind of painstaking labor goes with the production of a competition-ready World Touring Car Championship racer?

At the very least, preparations take about a few weeks to turn something like a Chevrolet Cruze into a high-powered, sticker-obsessed production car. The crew at Ray Mallock Ltd., however, can do it in just under two minutes.

Ok, that’s an exaggerated exaggeration, but this time-lapse video of the Mallock crew working on the Cruze illustrates the whole process of building a touring car in under two minutes. If you’re going to watch it, we advise you not to blink because there’s a pretty good chance that you might miss out on something pretty important.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Great exposure for what GM hopes will be its next world car.

Chevy already has begun testing the WTCC Cruze and plans to enter the opening round of the 2009 season in Curitiba, Brazil. The series will tour a dozen tracks in Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Good job! That was really a cool building car within a few weeks and turning for something like a Chevrolet Cruze, that’s really impressive.

That grueling eh? I thought that it would be machine or electric (robots or something) that creates cars like that nowadays? Well, to work as hard as that, it is still a very honorable job as you get to see in the street and say, that one good car, I was a part of creating that machine.
