Video: How to build a Ferrari 458 Italia's body frame
As far as autoworker jobs go, putting together a Ferrari has got to be one of the plum gigs. The company is consistently rated as one of the best places to work in Europe, but if the pleasant atmosphere and long espresso breaks weren't enough, you get to go home at the end of the day knowing that you put together a Ferrari. Not a pickup truck, not an economy hatchback, but a Ferrari.
Unfortunately for most of us, that job isn't really feasible, but to give us a glimpse at what we're missing, Ferrari is apparently releasing a series of videos showing us what it's like inside its factory. Last week it was the engine assembly line, and this time it's the facility where the workers produce the frame.
The factory built in conjunction with aluminum giant Alcoa also happens to be the only Ferrari plant located outside the company's compound in Maranello - situated, as it is, in nearby Modena. Follow the jump to watch the ten-minute video to see the process unfold.Permalink | Email this | Comments
