14+ minute video starts off promising but then lingers somewhat. Some (but not enough, IMHO) sequences of the actual cars rather than of individual components (wiring harnesses, really ). Shop layout is quite impressive, however, as it appears you're in an office space, not a workshop.

^^^^ yeah, LOL. The "engine with spikes coming out of it" comment really made her hair color stand out.

Good video overall. Thanks for posting.

Jack11101 is on a distinguished road
Why exactly did they choose to build it in such a small facility?

Because the owner of Prodrive was the CEO of Aston until recently, they have been running several Aston Works teams for well over a decade and are renowned for their engineering of race/rally cars
