Here's a Google Video of Audi's Touareg Cayenne Q7 being built at VAG's Slovakian plant. The big ute starts as a couple of metal crossmembers, gets the full-on robotic workover with human assistance, and comes out a complete vehicle on the other side. Along the way it picks up a powertrain, chassis, wheels and tires, an interior, electronics and all of the bits and pieces to make it whole. Although the real process takes a little longer than the five-and-a-half-minute clip, it's an interesting peek inside the assembly line of a luxury sport ute. Perhaps not revolutionary, but kind of fun for a Thursday afternoon. Follow the jump to see the clip.

      Nice vid, nice car, nice music. And even before seeing how chevrolet make their cars, i wouldn't think of buying one - they just s-u-c-k! the only american car i enjoyed driving was pacifica - and only because it surprised the hell out of me - i thought i am down for another fat-ass kid-hauler, low quality interior experiences, but alas - pacifica was none of that things, and sure they cancel it... americans won't know a good thing if it hit them in the nutsack.

      cheers.

      Audi is one of the UGLIEST nameplates! Glorified VW..... As mentioned, the Do Rag (oops, Taureg) is (oops, Q7) simply a VW....... And ALL Audis are as beautiful as a week old bar of bath soap!

        Ignorant comment if I ever read one... Fine for you to have your opinion about their looks (even if it is opposite to the rest of the world) but the glorified non-sense is rediculous...

        I guess a Lexus is a glorified Toyota, an Infiniti a glorified Nissan, and an Acura a glorified Honda, a Mercedes a glorified Chrysler, a Jaguar is a glorified Ford, and a BMW a glorified Mini...

      I want to be the guy who test drives the new off-the-assembly cars and pushes up the odometer before people buy it and are like, "OMFG, 2 MILES?!"
