Mini car factory. Newly-built Mini being quality tested at BMW's Plant Oxford site, Cowley, England, UK. This plant runs for 22 hours a day, 7 days a week and a completed car rolls off the production line every 60 seconds. There are only ever 60 members of staff tending and observing the robots on the production floor during each shift. Here, the car is in an extreme temperature testing booth, which exposes the car to temperatures from -30C to +50C to ensure it functions correctly.
