Let's face it. Most parking lots are quite boring. They are simply empty spaces where you leave your car and come to pick it up once you are done. But not all parking lots are created equal. Some parking lots are actually marvels of engineering.

The Autostadt Car Tower in Germany, for instance, is the world’s fastest automatic parking system. Cars are transported to the top of the tower with a record speed of 6.6 ft/s (2 m/s). The Dokk1 parking lot in Denmark has seen more than 1 million cars parked there. In total, it can host 972 vehicles, making it Europe’s largest automatic car park.

Then there’s the Hamilton Scotts in Singapore which features a ‘parking lot in the sky.’ It showcases a rotating platform that takes the car from an elevator shaft straight to the residents’ living rooms.
