Mega Factories Ferrari FF

A rare look inside the new Ferrari factory where they are building the Ferrari FF, the first four-wheel drive Ferrari with four full size seats.

The FF’s 12 cylinder engine is one of the most powerful engine ever built at the factory in Marnello with 651 Horsepower. The engine block is actually cast there and must go through multiple quality checks before it’s ready to join the final assembly line.

The FF’s unique four-wheel drive system uses a seven speed dual-clutch manual transmission which sits at the back of the car to off set the weight of the V12 engine and achieve better total balance for this unique vehicle.

There is a second transmission at the front of the engine and this is the unit that makes the Ferrari FF’s four wheel drive system revolutionary. Ferrari emphasizes that its four wheel drive system is intended primarily for all weather capability. Normally the FF sends power from its from mounted V12 just to the rear wheels.

Mega Factories Porsche 911

The challenge of redesigning the Porsche 911, an automotive icon.

This is the 7th generation of the car and while it clearly looks like a 911 it is virtually brand new in terms of size, design, and performance. It may just be the best Porsche 911 ever.

Designers and engineers faced a double challenge. Not only did the have to redesign the car but they had to redesign part of the original Porsche factory in which the car is built.

It wasn’t easy to do either. The legendary 911 has a league of loyal fans who don’t like change and the factory is located in the middle of an officially declared historic district and nothing could be changed on the outside of the complex that would change the way it looks.

Mega Factories Ford Mustang

Go inside Ford’s Mustang Factory where the latest versions of the original pony car are built.

Amazingly, both the cars and the factory are designed to produce 4 different models, from the base V6 to a 650HP fire breathing V8.

In terms of horsepower, the 650HP V8 is the most powerful V8 built anywhere in the world.

And in terms of speed for your dollar, the top of the line Mustang, the Shelby 550 GT, has a top speed of 200 miles an hour yet a base price of approximately $65,000.

There’s no other car available that comes close in terms of bang for your buck in top speed.
