The folks at Hagerty sure do love their timelapses, and their latest one might be the coolest yet. It's a six-minute clip of a Volkswagen Beetle engine being completely torn down and rebuilt, start to finish.
actually owns this Beetle, and says it drove a full 2500 miles from Portland, Oregon to headquarters in Traverse City, Michigan before the rebuild occurred. The old Bug was in less-than-stellar condition, so the engine received a plethora of new parts, including an all-new aluminum case and a full exhaust.
The timelapse is compiled from no less than 30,000 individual photos, according to the description. We're able to see the carburetor rebuilt, and all of the refurbished parts made good as new. As with most other rebuild timelapses, it's incredibly satisfying to watch. Once the engine is placed back into the car and tidied up, the little Beetle fires up instantly. Take a look for yourself.
