Ultimate Factories Ford F150

The most popular selling vehicle in the United States isn’t a car, but rather a truck — The Ford F150!

From the basic ‘work truck’ to the super luxurious ‘Platinum’ edition, and now a factory built Baja racer called the ‘Raptor SVT’, there is an almost endless number of applications and uses for every single F150. You don’t become the best selling vehicle in America any other way.

Inside the Dearborn Truck Plant, one of the most modern Ford Factories in the World, each machine is crafted and created!

Ultimate Factories: Maserati

There were six Italian brothers, all born in the late 1800’s. Five of them became obsessed with a new invention called the automobile. The sixth brother was an artist. He would create a ‘Trident’ logo that would become world famous for cars carrying the family name — The name of Maserati.

Today Maserati occupies a unique place in the world of high performance Italian sports cars: The only marque whose cars are all four passenger super cars. Cars built in a factory that uniquely combines the very latest in high technology with tradition, history, and the classic Italian passion for things that look sexy and go fast!

Ultimate Factories: Mercedes Benz AMG SLS

There are cool cars. There are fast cars. And there are Super Cars… But there are only a handful of Automotive Icons… And fewer cars still that achieve eternal fame.

The Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing has done both.

Introduced in 1954, the 300SL was quickly proclaimed as the fastest production car in the World – In 1999, it was voted ‘Sportscar of the Century’– And it is widely considered ‘the first modern sports car’…

And now, it’s being reborn — As the Mercedes Benz AMG SLS!

A state-of-the-art sports car that retains the famous Gullwing doors of the original and heralds Mercedes-Benz return to the Super Car World!

Man Made: Bugatti Super Car – National Geographic

Man Made: Bugatti Super Car Premiere’s February 11th at 8PM!

Bugatti’s goal was simple—they didn’t want to build just another ‘Super Car’. Bugatti wanted to go ‘Beyond The Super Car’ and build the impossible– the Bugatti Veyron 16.4– the fastest, most powerful, most expensive production car ever built. Top speed, an unbelievable 253 miles per hour. Price tag, an incredible $1.7 million dollars.

But the engineering and design challenges would be the automotive version of climbing Mount Everest or landing on the Moon. The question to be answered was could it be done.

To check out some video and find out more, head on over to the National Geographic Website Page for the Show!
