You really have to feel sorry for rich kids living in cities. Because even if their parents own an incredibly rare Ferrari 250GT, it will be parked in the underground garage beneath their luxury building, and their children will never achieve spiritual growth by sending the car over a precipice like Cameron did in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The car would have to be parked somewhere on an upper story, preferably on the same level as their tony apartment, in order for the kids to experience this kind of gravity-based emotional catharsis.
Thankfully, architects from around the world have been working to solve this problem, as we first saw in 2009 with NYC's En-Suite Sky Garages. And now there's a German counterpart in CarLoft, "an innovative lifestyle and parking concept" for "an exclusive apartment complex in Berlin."
