A Vending Machine for Supercars?
The year is 2017, and seeing the advances technology has made over the past few decades, it’s hard to imagine where we might go from here.
For now, it appears we’ve reached a milestone. As far as vending machines go, this may be the greatest iteration. A Singapore dealer, Autobahn Motors, has created a 15-story vending machine – its sole purpose? Dispensing supercars.
Stacking German and Italian engineering marvels on top of each other allows all to enjoy the architectural goodness on display by this vertical dealership.
If you find yourself lucky enough to be shopping for a vehicle from Autobahn’s collection, you’ll be treated to a once in a lifetime experience.
Customers are greeted at ground level where they select a car for inspection via a tablet. The selected vehicle is then transported by a “fish bone” elevator system to the showroom turntable on the ground level–all within two minutes. Not the car you were looking for? Well, in that case, the process repeats itself all over.
The vertical system is an excellent workaround of Singapore’s scarcity of space. This unique system allows ABM to store up to 60 vehicles and stand out from the competition.
