This auto company in Singapore sells cars from a vending machine

This is one vending machine you can’t shake if the wrong product comes out. No, it doesn’t sell chocolate bars or packages of cookies. Singapore’s Autobahn Motors has a machine that dispenses luxury vehicles, just one to two minutes after you make your selection.

At the touch of a button, you can access their amazing inventory, from a 2013 Aston Martin DBS Volante to a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador, or even a 1955 Morgan Tourer.

According to SENATUS, the vending machine is a whopping 15 stories full of cars, four columns wide.

Autobahn Motors general manager Gary Hong told Reuters, “We needed to meet our requirement of storing a lot of cars. At the same time, we wanted to be creative and innovative.” Space is at a premium in a big city, and when Hong saw how Matchbox sells cars stacked on top of each other, it all came together in his head.

So he made an easy way to get snacks into an easy way to buy a new vehicle. And customers love it, as the vending machine has boosted profits by about 30 percent this quarter, the company told CNNMoney. For those who like the personal touch of a regular car dealership, don’t worry—Autobahn Motors Singapore also has helpful staff on site to assist you in the car viewing and purchasing process.

Oh, yeah, and they do bill it as the world’s “largest” car vending machine, because it’s not even the first. A site that sells used cars claims they opened the first one in Nashville in 2015. Carvana sells tokens that you use to purchase a car from the machine. They even give you $200 toward your flight if you want to pick it up in person at the vending machine and then drive it home. Carvana’s tagline? “Vending fresh cars daily.”
