Phaeton phantasmagorical

Saw this on Boingboing just a few minutes ago: a photo tour of Volkswagen’s Phaeton factory in Dresden, Germany.

Unbelievable. This is no factory, it’s a work of engineering and aesthetic art. I’d work in it any day.

Glass, steel, laminated wood flooring: it’s a modernist dream factory made real.

Of course, I think the car is a gas guzzling brute, even if it is somewhat better than a lot of SUVs, and incredibly, amazingly, wonderfully beautiful. However, it can be purchased in a much more efficient V6 turbo diesel TDi version.
