It's a time-lapse video, of course.

Did anyone ever say it was easy tobuild a race car? This time-lapse video might appear to prove it, but that tendsto happen when condensing three weeks into 60 seconds. Make no mistake, though, it’s alot harder than it looks. In this clip the crew at Prodrive, a British racing andengineering group, construct the #98 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE in preparationfor the FIA 2016 WEC season. The Aston’s most recent available specs regardingits 4.5-liter V8 put it in the 600 horsepower range.

This season, the Aston will be piloted by Mathias Lauda (son of three-time F1 championship winner Niki Lauda), and former F1 driver Pedro Lamy, who scored the first point for a Portuguese driver in a world championship event at the 1995 Australian Grand Prix.
