This giant vending machine dispenses a really small car. Put your $20,000 in the slot, and take your pick from a Smart Coupe or Cabrio. Smart cars have only recently been exported outside of Europe to Japan and the U.S.

This vending machine was located in a high traffic area of a Japanese train station and had some fun with the Japanese love for instant gratification. Smart cars are only eight feet long, so making a seemingly realistic (but fake) vending machine.
