A 15-story building in Singapore is being heralded as the world’s largest and most luxurious vending machine. But it’s not dispensing candy or coke; instead the building is selling luxury cars.
Opened in December by used car seller Autobahn Motors, the building displays its available vehicles in 60 slots. Those on offer reportedly include a number of Ferraris, Bentleys and Porsches along with a 2014 McLaren 650s, a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador and a 1955 Morgan Plus 4.
Once selected by a customer on the ground floor via a touch screen display, the car travels on a moving platform and is delivered to the buyer within a few minutes.
Gary Hong, general manager at Autobahn Motors, said the vending machine format was designed to use space efficiently and to stand out from the competition.
“We needed to meet our requirement of storing a lot of cars. At the same time, we wanted to be creative and innovative,” he told Reuters.
This isn’t the world’s first car vending machine, though it certainly might be the biggest. Down in Nashville, a building run by Carvana stores about 20 cars. Alas they’re quick to point out that, “You Can’t Shake It For A Free One.”
