[VIDEO] Singapore Car Vending Machine Dispenses Supercars
These days, it seems like there is a vending machine for just about everything—cupcakes, pizza, beer, caviar, cars. Wait a minute—cars?
Yep, that’s right. A luxury used car dealership called Autobahn Motors in Singapore, has opened a real-life luxury car vending machine filled with tasty automotive delights like Lamborghinis, McLarens, and Bentleys.
With the world’s population increasing on a daily basis, large cities are quickly running out of space. With more and more people moving to the city, businesses need to be much more creative in how they utilize their space, and Autobahn Motors’ car vending machine is an excellent example of that.
The vending machine consists of four columns, each with 15 cars (one per level). Customers can browse the inventory using a touch screen in the building’s foyer. When a vehicle is selected, the building uses an advanced technology system to retrieve it. The same system also keeps track of inventory, reducing the chances that the wrong car will be retrieved.
Watch the following video to see the vending machine in action.
Autobahn Motors isn’t the only company in the world to make use of a car vending machine. U.S.-based used car seller Carvana has several car vending machines, the most recent addition being in San Antonio, Texas. This structure consists of eight floors and can hold up to 30 cars total. Customers can either pick up their car at one of the vending machines or get free delivery if they live within a 100-mile radius.
While we’re surely a long way off from seeing car vending machines in every city, it’s pretty cool to see what dealerships can do with limited space.
