Closer inspection reveals pretty uniform cuts on the bodywork, and the YouTube channel also features a similarly damaged BMW X5 model car, leading us to believe the YouTuber deliberately damaged the model to strut their restoration prowess.

It has released a number of videos detailing the construction of the new car, many of which are online at eurotuner. Several specialist teams also start working on building major sub-assemblies such as the dashboard and doors prior to installation. In the dashboard sub-assembly area the fusion of hand-assembly techniques and high technology components is striking. Six team members are responsible for the installation and testing of the complex electrical controls using touch-screen computers. They are supported by two other colleagues who are tasked with hand-fitting the leather top-roll to the dashboard. It takes the team approximately 20 minutes to bring the body and powertrain together, position the suspension and guide the subframes into their locations. It will then take another 80 minutes to secure the powertrain and make all the connections before the ancillary components such as exhaust, front-end module and radiator shell can be fitted. One of the most involved processes is building the cabin. By the time the Mulsanne nears the end of the assembly line it will have undergone over checks one section manager alone will need to complete up to checks before releasing the car to the next stage. It will then be fuelled and ready to be driven onto the shake rig and rolling road test areas.
