With the technological revolution still in full swing, it’s easy to forget about one of the first forms of innovation that created a worldwide competition and industry; that is the automobile industry. Ever since the inception of Ford Motors and creating consumer priced cars, companies have popped up all over the world to compete in providing the best cars possible. Now we take a look at the top 10 most impressive car company headquarters and see what it takes to succeed globally.
10. Bentley Motors
After being founded in January of 1919, Bentley Motors has gone on to become a leading name in the sector of luxury cars. While they are a part of Volkswagen subsidiary group, they keep their own identity in design and function. Their HQ located in Crewe, Cheshire, UK holds their incredible design team along with the corporate offices. Also in the building, you will find a collection of rare cars from their lengthy history.
The Audi American HQ is located in Herndon, VA, although the company originally began in Germany in mid-1909. They specialize in a variety of cars from the small family car to the full-sized luxury cars. In the building you will find not just the latest and greatest of their retail cars but their retired F1 race cars as well.
This multi-national Japanese organization is well-known for all types of motorized vehicles from motorbikes to Jetskis. Their work began in the same place as their current HQ, in Hamamatsu, Japan. The small fishing village surrounding it is quite the juxtaposition to the amazing building housing the ideas and models for Suzuki’s latest cars.
The Whitley plant in Whitley, Coventry, England, was originally an air field in WWI but now holds the precious cargo of Jaguar innovation and design. The plant is not only where ideas are inspired but tested and developed into the super fast, luxury vehicles you see on the road today.
Cadillac is the high-end option for the General Motors Company, and their New York City office HQ surely represents this famed brand quite well. The 50-story building not only houses the brains behind Cadi’s state-of-the-art, luxury cars, but you will also find the very first Apple Store and FAO Schwarz, the famous toy store.
