Car production line at the Volkswagen Transparent Factory, Dresden, Germany. This factory, opened in 2001, was built to make the luxury Phaeton car model. The production line combines automation and manual craftmanship to ensure high standards of construction. Customers and tourists can tour the factory and watch the construction of the cars. The two workers here are polishing the body of an assembled car on a conveyor belt passing slowly through a 70-metre-long tunnel. The bright lights are to allow close inspection for any defects and damage.
