German engineering

From the Fortune magazine article: "The Scandal at VW"

Regarding VW, Audi, Porche emissions testing the article states: "..the method shows how finely tuned the cheating was. A key phase of the ...emissions test lasts exactly 1,370 was calibrated to emit a legal amount of emissions for precisely 1,370 seconds. When the 1,371st second elapsed the software switched settings, so that the car spewed up to nine times the permitted amount of NOx... How's that for German engineering?"

Made me laugh, but then maybe not so funny.

Interesting article though.
