[Watch] 'Vending machine' selling luxury vehicles
Asian Age Online
Forget about soft drinks and potato chips-- this “vending machine” in Singapore serves up Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
With slots for up to 60 luxury cars, Autobahn Motors hopes its 15-storey showroom will stand out above the competition.
On the ground floor, customers select the vehicle they want to see on a touch pad. A video detailing the car’s history and specifications plays in the background, while a complex retrieval system fetches the car within two minutes.
The car rotates on display until the customer makes another selection, sending the platform back upstairs.
Autobahn says it chose this ‘vending machine’ format to work around Singapore's land squeeze, creating a system better suited for the available vertical space.
According to the company's general manager, Autobahn’s vehicle management technology has attracted the attention of developers interested in using it for parking services.
