Do you love your car so much that you could go to bed with it or invite it into your kitchen? If so, a team of Berlin architects has designed the ultimate living space for you and your machine: the drive-in apartment.
The idea is simple, yet also faintly disturbing. An elegant but heavy-duty lift strong enough to hoist an armour-plated vehicle lifts the limo directly to the loft-style apartment. It is parked in a kind of conservatory with only a large glass wall separating it from the living space.
Whenever you feel the need to stroke the bonnet of your Mercedes you simply slide back the wall and bond.
Cars have become design statements, an expression of your lifestyle, says Johannes Kauka, the managing director of Topos, which is completing the pioneering apartment block in a run-down area of Berlin. So why not integrate them properly into your life? The effect is to make the car part of the interior decoration: a work of art that the proud owner can admire from his sofa.

A parking spot right outside your door? Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

They have devised all kinds of neat lifts to save space there, including a parking garage that the elevator puts your car in a slot for retrieval later"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

08-14-2008, 07:21 PMIn stunning news that will have wide ranging implications for many years to come, a man has been found who likes having sex with cars.
The details of mechanic Chris Donald's alleged romantic vehicular liaisons have been unearthed by (naturally) The Sun - who claim that in addition to a large number of cars, Mr Donald has also done the dirty with two boats and a jetski.
Mr Donald apparently says that his sexual fetish may have been triggered by formative childhood experiences watching Knight Rider.
'When I was a young boy I used to see human qualities in cars,' he says. 'As I grew up I noticed I was having feelings towards cars and they began catching my eye in a certain way.'
I'm saying nothing ... :D
