Just set the DVR to record and wanted to give you guys a heads up. They are also showing "Man Made: the Bugatti Veyron" right now. Check it out.

Thanks for the heads-up. One of the BEST supercars on Earth... period.
And one of my "most wanted".

I think its great that National GEographic has done as many of these as they have. I have on my DVR list

1. Murcielago
2. 599 GTB Fiorano
3. Roll Royce Phantom
4. BMW Z4
5. Corvette ZO6
6. Bugatti Veyron
7. Murcieago SV
and now
8. Audi R8



I love these guys. The cars they select are amazing and the production and quality of the documentary is excellent , serious, and informative. Typical National Geographic

For those who are interested you should search for "ULTIMATE FACTORIES" on the Nat GEo channel

I did not know they tested each Veyron to top speed before selling it. Man, I cannot wait until National Geographic does a segment on the LFA production process.

I think it would be a good one. I wish they would do the Ferrari 458, LFA, Pagani Zonda, and Keoenigsegg CCXR

I thouroughly enjoyed that episode. Really makes me appreciate the R8 for the car it is and not think of it as an Audi.

Default Nat Geo - Bugatti Veyron and Audi R8

Did anyone watch these 2 episodes on National Geographics Channel?

Showed how each was built...Hand Made frames!! The Bugatti is steel frame and the R8 is Aluminum....unreal.

If you have a chance...watch it...really interesting!!
