More like Thunderbirds (which W&G were ripping off). I hope the driveway is lined with palm trees that tilt out of the way as the car sets off!


Slatinho

Paying reference to something as W&G does regularly isn't the same as ripping it off


Krumpus8

I don’t know why, but I was kinda hoping a shitty rusted out Honda civic would be coming out of there.

A shitty shining olds-mobile came out instead. Can’t be more hanna barbera then that

That's not an Oldsmobile, it's a Citroën DS

I have an irrational fear of falling into the gears...


bloomautomatic

I wouldn’t say it’s irrational. There are no guards on it. if you fell into them it would crush whatever got caught in it. If the motors are strong enough to lift the car, they’d take a hand off for sure. Maybe an arm.

He had the Citroen in Germany. London was an Austin Maxi, and in Rome it was a Fiat Regata. I don't think they had a car in Paris. -Big National Lampoons fan

This car fun to drive aswell

Too many things that can and will go wrong.


memtiger

I'm pretty sure if you can afford this, you can handle the maintenance of it just fine.


[deleted]

[удалено]


n0exit

There is nothing home made about that. This is something that cost a couple hundred thousand more dollars than the Citroen, custom built buy a specialist in hard lifts.


Dektarey

You seriously underestimate the cost of heavy, custom machinery. Like, damn.


[deleted]

Something like this is planned to be able to handle basically whatever you can throw at it, as long as you regularly maintain it.


Ok_Stomach1171

Unless it’s a spanner.


[deleted]

It’s clearly far from new, and looks to be working fine. And it’s hardly complex - it’s not like it’s a jet engine or something. What is it with Reddit and it’s desperate need to fabricate a way to shit on anything and everything?


RapNVideoGames

If Reddit taught me anything it’s that everyone and everything is a piece of shit.


ThePotatoeMenace

This is also most likely not for personal use. Looks like it’s a public lot.


9neineinein9

Are you talking mechanically or human safety wise? There are some parts that could fail, but there are many other things that are more mechanically complex such as a car that are used in everyday life. Safety wise, that is a very valid point as it's next to a public street, if a person fell in and got mangled by the chains... that wouldn't end well


Anomaly1134

Yeah I was going to say, waaay to many moving pieces.


[deleted]

Where are the 13 ghosts?


Drjeco

That is a reference I have not heard in many years.


beansaregood

I rewatched it recently. It’s really terrible. Shout out to my buddy Herb tho, he plays the ghost called The Hammer, and got the job when the original actor got fired. Good dude.


Drjeco

Oh yea, pretty bad movie, but nostalgia holds it high in memory, lol. Back in the days when you owned Max 5 movies and had to rent, so you rewatched the rental movie 3x with your boys, lol.


freedomnotanarchy

That is some Bruce Wayne shit right there


jazzkzazz

Why does it need to rotate though?


zentrix718

It holds more than one car down there. You drive into it in one direction and it puts the car in a stall, and when you take it back out it points the car you picked towards the exit.


jazzkzazz

Oh just noticed the stalls!


gordo65

I was wondering what the point of this was. Makes sense when you realize that there are multiple cars in an underground garage. Still seems like a more practical solution would be to sacrifice a little space and have a ramp take you to the surface.


n0exit

If you're in a dense urban setting, there is no space to sacrifice. Car lifts like this are all over the place in Tokyo. They are usually towers instead of under ground. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XczmVZ7Eko4](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XczmVZ7Eko4)


soupie62

The difference between a tower an a well is the way you hold the blueprint.


arthurdentstowels

There’s a scene in Unknown with Liam Neeson that takes place in a parking garage like this where you can see the inside and how it works (I may have got the film completely wrong but I’m sure it’s Liam Neeson. I can’t find the clip).


depressedostrichstan

Pretty sure its for maximizing the dramatic effect


spychipper

As someone else already noted the tracks visible on the first level (there seem to be two levels below) are stalls. The car and the platform it is sitting on are stored in one. When it is raised up it rotates to face the exit. Someone who can afford that would *never* do anything as pedestrian as *shudder* backing up.

Anyone else humming the bond theme?

Yes

Pretty neat till you remember that you forgot your cell phone in there. Head out to get it, car goes back down. "Oh shit, forgot my tablet". Car comes back up, get tablet, car goes back down. "Where's my fucking head, left my wallet in there". Car comes back up..............

They got to be wealthy. That underground garage has different rails: one for a different car and they don’t seem cheap ones. Life goals


trevster344

Would hate to have to service that machinery..


jgnp

Goddamn I need a Citroen.


TimoxR2

What is happening with Citroën DS right now. In a span of 24h, I got jay Leno's video about the DS recommended out of nowhere on YouTube, and saw a post of a convertible DS and this on reddit. You may not care but I find it extra weird


Venvel

Or as I like to call it, the HumanCrusher 5000.

This is some James Bond shit.


sethorsesonfire

would have been much cooler if it was an Aston Martin


liarandathief

An underground garage...an underground garage. I don't even own *a* car, let alone many cars that would necessitate an entire underground garage. What am I gonna do with an underground garage?


LeonardGhostal

You don't like it? *Fine*. You know, Wayne, if you're not careful you are going to lose me!

Psycho hose beast.


liarandathief

at least someone got it

Its a public garage. You pay to park and it stores it for you.

Build it in a relatively rich city with parking problems and let people use your garage for a certain fee.

If that's a French car then that's actually a trash compactor vomiting up an inedible vehicle.

Imagine having a garage that cool only end up owning a Citroen.

Yeah, a car that cool and beautiful should never be hidden away.

I feel like you may need some kind of cover between the hatch opening and the car though, as not to scratch the paint with falling rock and debris

Anyone else thinking they should have made it wider?

God not now I just watched Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Isn't that a ds-2?


untakentryanother_

Yes


Kumshotte-

Wonder what the parking fee’s would be like


nonnybeast

Oooh a jaguar that one nice car


Drjeco

At the very end of the video the car starts dropping, but the platform stays at ground level, anybody know what's going on?


spychipper

My guess was that the car is lifted off the ground/platform to lock it in place and prevent it from rolling off the platform. That leads to my question of how different length/wheelbase cars are handled, but I'm sure they thought of that when designing it. It appears there is one platform per car, brought out on the tracks visible on the first below ground level.


kewlmex

I imagined the theme music from cowboy bebop when I saw this


SuperCoupe

That's not a garage. That's a car-hole.


Fallen_Walrus

What if there's a black out lol


qwwqqq

I can't afford to watch this gif.


Wwwweeeeeeee

They have these in Paris, but they're literally just simple car elevators. I could never figure out how so many different cars were parking in one single garage... I was thinking "gosh, do they take turns?" Garage door would open, car would drive in, door would close. Then the light bulb went off and somehow, these old buildings figured out how to put parking garages underneath. Probably dug them by hand, even! Very logical and practical.

I seem to remember a more modern one going wrong and it crushed the car it was moving and another that got in the way, I'll pass on owning any of these

I probably wouldn't trust an underground garage like this. Because I would think it would just crush the car against the concrete or falling into the gears

After all that fanfare I hoped the car would be a busted ‘93 Camry. F-ing good car


BigDickRick77

So looks like it is custom built for that size car. You won’t fit a lot of modern cars in the same space.

PEPSICOLA123456

Is there any need for all the spinning? Just have a platform that goes up and down like windows cleaners use.


spychipper

For everyone thinking this is unique and amazing it is indeed uncommon, but it's merely the underground version of the Cravana car vending machines, to which people say "cool" and drive on without another thought.

That's no garage... that's a secret spy base!
