Touring the VW Phaeton Plant in Dresden

This image was lost some time after publication.

The globetrotters over at VW Vortex compiled photos from a tour of VW's ultra high-tech Phaeton plant in Dresden, Germany. From the looks of the Phaeton's swank birthing quarters, it's almost a shame VW's pulling the slow-selling luxodub from the US. But we'd imagine if potential buyers got to spend a day at the factory (which appears to be tidier than an Intel clean room) they'd pick one of the luxurious buggers up post haste, despite the badge on the grille. [Thanks to Tim for the tip.]
