A look at the Audi R8 Spyder being built – Click above to watch video after the jump

What we dig about European plants that build high-zoot cars is that it always looks like each car gets everyone's full attention, every step presided over by workers who want to make sure they've done everything they could. Its most telling examples were the lab-coated workmen assembling the Carrera GT or SLR McLaren and the one-engine-one-worker method of AMG, but the gents looking after the Audi R8 Spyder keep up the tradition.

This peek around the production plant making Iron Man's car is a little light on drama, but there are plenty of other nuts-and-bolt's reasons for the enthusiast to spare three minutes to watch it. Follow the jump for the clip, and don't forget to put a few pennies away today for a deposit on one of your own. Hat tip to Steals

      Wonder if they would put in place a "sweat equity" program where they knock a few thou off the price if you flew into Neckarsulm to help build your own car?

        I can't believe nobody got that.

        That was a line that Audi used.
