The Ferrari plant was amazing. I want to be the guy putting the V-12's together!! It is amazing to see how a $250K car is put together and all the engineering behind it.

Default Corvette Ride

Its more amazing when you are driving one. I drive a Corvette. I would have like them to put the corvette up against both of them and see who azz got kick. Been through the Corvette Plant twice. Last time was to pickup my new vette. Was given the VIP tour which is different then the everyday tour for the public. They let you go beyond the green line. Got to talk to the people assembling the cars and even afforded the opportunity to started a car coming off of the assembly line which they call the "Birth of the Corvette".

The only thing lacking in a vette is snob appeal. It out performs everything in its price class, and competes with or beats the ones at double or triple the price. My Z06 is extremely quick, handles fantastic, and gets 30mpg on the highway. While doing all that, it qualifies as a low level emissions vehicle. THATS good engineering.
