Below is the interior of a 20-storey car tower in Volkswagen's Autostadt or "car city" in Wolfburg, Germany - basically a car dealership and theme park rolled into one.

The Autostadt, which opened in 2001 and boasts a hotel, restaurants, a museum, and other attractions, sees over one million visitors per year. Car buyers take delivery of their purchases via a fully automated procedure whereby the automobile is plucked robotically from a cubbyhole in one of the two "twin towers," each of which holds up to 400 vehicles, and brought to its owner on a special elevator.

We should so get multi-story car parks like this!
