Have you ever thought or wanted to know how your TT was or will your be made?

The MKII TT has come a very long way from the MKI originally designed by J Mays and Freeman Thomas, with Martin Smith and Romulus Rost contributing to the award winning interior design (all whom currently work for ford)

Overview of the process
The TT is assembled in two different locations, the bodywork and paint are done in Ingolstadt in Germany, and vehicle assembly is completed at Gyor in Hungary. After the body components are put together almost completely automatically by 247 robots the completed and painted bodyshells are then loaded onto trains at the plant. The TT bodyshells embark on the approximately 650 kilometre-long trip from Ingolstadt to Györ in Hungary in special closed wagons. Up to three trains make this journey per day. (or did)

Once in the 35,000 m2 assembly area at Gyor, the body shells are sent to the production line (which is 240 Meters long and has 65 individual workstations). The new Audi TT is built in an average time of just 10 hours!

The assembly process is being operated on the basis of a three-shift system. Approximately 800 employees.

How is your car tested before it gets delivered?
just kidding, only a few special cars get this level of TLC between factory
build and delivery to the dealer. (German, Sorry) :p
