Cool Timelapse Shows How A Car Is Built In Under Two Minutes

It takes 19 hours to build a Seat Leon ST from scratch. In this timelapse, though, you can see it go from bare chassis to completed car, condensed into two minutes.

Seat, VW's budget brand from Spain, recorded this whole video on GoPro, showing how 5,900 separate parts and 1,580 meters (5,183 feet) of cable come together in their 20-year-old Martorell factory.

I'm an engineer in the auto industry and my family and people I know complain about working on cars and why you have to take so much of a car apart to get at 1 thing. This is why.

You saw how long it took to get the entire chassis and drivetrain into the vehicle, seconds. If you take the entire drivetrain out, it's easy to work on. But that shit has to go into the car in seconds otherwise they can't meet the production volume requirement for the plant.
