So ya thought you knew just about everything there is to know about the 2010 Camaro…. until now. Here’s a list of some very interesting production facts behind the manufacturing process of the 2010 Camaro. The information is being provided by National Geographic Channel ahead of their Ultimate Factories: 2010 Camaro feature program airing tomorrow (Thursday) night at 8pm ET.
Here are some interesting tidbits (you can find the rest HERE (including some interesting design process photos)) :
- Each Camaro takes 18 hours of assembly time
- There are 734 robots doing the nearly 5,000 spot welds needed to create the body shell for each Camaro Coupe.
- In order to get to the paint shop the Camaro body has to be transported on a bridge over a city street where it is painted and then shipped back across the bridge to the trim area for final detailing.
- One Camaro rolls off the assembly line approximately every minute.
- The Camaro engine is produced at a different plant and has to be shipped approximately 2 hours to the assembly line where it finally meets the Camaro.
