http://www.eurocarnews.com Lamborgini SPA: Even in the world of super sports cars, 515 kW (700 hp) at 8,250 rpm sets a new benchmark. Maximum torque stands at 690 Newton meters and is available at 5,500 rpm. The extremely well-rounded torque curve, beefy pulling power in every situation, incredibly spontaneous responsiveness and, not least, the finely modulated but always highly emotional acoustics make this engine a stunning power unit of the very highest order. Not only was it developed entirely in-house by Lamborghini, it is also manufactured from start to finish at company headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese. Highly qualified specialists assemble the engines by hand, with every single one then tested extensively and finely calibrated on an engine test bed.

Nissan GT-R Engine Assembly
Here are some quick scenes from the Nissan Yokohama engine plant's Clean Room. It takes an average of 100 minutes for an engine master to assemble one engine. Each man diligently checks and records the torque spec of every critical nut and bolt, and the data is stored for the life of the engine.
F1 Turbo - The most scary race cars ever (Feel the torque)
Brilliant footage of formula 1 driver Johnny Dumfries in the 98T Renault F1 turbo John Player Special. On the circuit in Adelaide he is in 11th place. Listen to the torque of this remarkable Renault F1 engine. You can "feel" the power when you turn up your speaker volume. Nothing is compared to the real thing obviously.
These drivers were genuine heroes with no fear at all and a big big heart. Listen to the engine noise and look at the skills the driver need to have to keep this beast on the road. These engines had up to 1400 Bhp.

Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen.
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December 2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of 2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive, all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen. With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest private-sector employer in the region.

This is the continuation of the video published Abril 29th 2009 with the first start of same engine.
In this video we compare the Exhaust notes between a 12-into-1 configuration against the original 6-into-1 per bank, double exit. The difference is noticeable.....and what you prefer depends on your taste.
The 12-into-1 configuration is the one to be used in the car when completed.
The car is a Lamborghini Espada S3 1972, upgraded to modern standards and with the Evoluzione addition, to be launched summer 2010.
