The 150-foot glass-fronted showroom can showcase all together 60 cars, making it the "world's largest luxury car vending machine."

Customers can choose a vehicle from a touchscreen display on the ground floor and their desired choice will be delivered to them in less than two minutes.

Hong, general manager of Autobahn Motors, said he came up with the idea for the vending machine after acquiring a small piece of land in the land scarce city-state.

"We need a showroom for 60 to 80 cars. After all, the solution we got is to put them in a 15-story tower," said Hong.

The showroom was put into operation last December and the eye-catching selling mode has pushed up their sales by 30 percent.

"The car itself is beautiful. After we add the proper light, turntable and promotional video, it becomes more convincing to customers,"said Hong.
