Used car dealership Autobahn Motors has opened a futuristic car ‘vending machine’ in Singapore. Called AIMS (for Automotive Inventory Management System), it is a 15-story transparent building that houses up to 60 luxury cars from brands like Ferrari, Bentley, Porsche and Lamborghini.

Customers can purchase cars using a tablet. A ‘fish-bone’ structure inside the building allows for quick retrievals. It takes an average of one to two minutes to retrieve a car from any lot. According to Covered Asia, potential buyers can view AV presentations at a viewing gallery, choosing a promotional video of a car that interests them. A spotlight is cast on the selected car as it arrives, presented on a large rotating platform. The AIMS is a glamorous, unique showroom—but whether it will actually be useful for customers remains to be seen.
