Given all the money in the world and little else to do with it, we don't doubt that a fair few automotive enthusiasts would spend a big chunk of both traversing the world, and visiting automakers and their museums. And to be sure, there's a lot to be seen, especially when those facilities actually open their doors to visitors. But most of us don't have those resources at our disposal. Fortunately for us, a growing number of those sites have been opening their doors to the Google Street View team.

We've seen Google's cameramen map out Laguna Seca in California, the Lotus test track in England, the Lamborghini museum in Italy and the Honda Collection Hall in Japan. This time they've gotten in to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England. The MTC of course is headquarters to both McLaren Automotive and the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, as it's currently known (but not much longer as the team prepares to part ways with both Vodafone and Mercedes). It's got assembly lines, carbon-fiber kilns, various workshops, a wind tunnel, restaurants, a swimming pool... even a handful of man-mad lakes.

Arguably one of the best parts is the McLaren Boulevard where various racing and road cars are on permanent display. Most of the time, these facilities remain closed to the public and only accessible to authorized personnel, but you can scope it out in Google Street View below.

      I wonder... if you took a job or volunteered to dust these cars every night for a couple of years, would you become an expert in aerodynamics?
