Volkswagen cars stored in a glass tower after they have been constructed at Volkswagen's Transparent Factory, Dresden, Germany. This tower, which is 40 metres high, houses the cars before collection by customers. The cars are the luxury Phaeton model. The Transparent Factory was opened in December 2001, and combines automated production processes with manual craftmanship. Customers and tourists can tour the factory and watch the construction of the cars in a clean, quiet atmosphere with wooden floors and natural lighting.
