These Volkswagen’s Car Towers are part of 'Autostadt' is located in Wolfsburg, Germany. These gleaming car parking towers of glass and galvanized steel where cars are automatically moved from the Wolfsburg plant and on to the customer center where they are collected by their owners. Each tower is 60 meter tall and houses 400 cars and connected to the factory through an underground tunnel which is about 700 meter far. A conveyor belt system transports finished cars directly from the adjacent manufacturing plant to the towers' basement. From there they are lifted into position via mechanical arms that rotate and run along a central beam, moving vehicles in and out of their bays at a speed of two meters per second. So, car odometer is on "0" KM. Visitors can explore the tower via a panoramic glass elevator and view it from 20th floor. Many Germany buyers are picking up their new vehicle from Wolfsburg.
