5. MegaFactories - Lamborghini

Lamborghini’s factory near Bologna, Italy, is building its fastest car ever: the Murcielago SV, of which just 350 will be made. The USD$450,000 Murcielago SV launches from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 212 miles per hour. The factory builds the car almost entirely by hand including its engine and body. The car is also painted and assembled by hand, including installation of the famous Lamborghini scissor doors. Every car is custom-built to order and only 2.7 cars are completed per day.Lamborghini’s factory near Bologna, Italy, is building its fastest car ever: the Murcielago SV, of which just 350 will be made.
