Ford Motor Co. has an exclusive lease on the $120 million, state-of-the-art automotive laboratory, which has been operational for about a year. The facility offers state-of-the-art aerodynamics, and environmental and acoustic testing on a single platform. Because it can simulate climate conditions anywhere in the world, the facility can perform specialized tests without shipping vehicles and staff to remote areas. (Photo by Bill Pugliano/Getty Images)
