Watch a Veyron assembled in the factory. The crankshaft is a piece of sculpture.

Where else can you witness one of these at top speed or drifting sideways on snow?

Most of the narration is in German. The test driver speaks in French-accented English.

I wonder how the mechanics who build those things are trained.

Apprenticeships, schools, and great network connections.

It's built in Alsace? But the design is Italian?

I don't think the Veyron was an Italian design (I thought some German or Slovak led it?). It's built in Alsace though. I imagine mechanics and engineers also get quite of a bit of in-house training as well, once you're in one of the major groups in Europe.

Bugatti is a French company, albeit one now owned by VW.
