Forget a 3-car garage. The new status symbol for the haves in London is this £40,000 pop-up garage by Cardok:
The £40,000 parking spots can be hidden beneath a flowerbed, lawn, or even another parking space.
Owners simply press a button on a keyring to raise they car out of the ground much like the rocket launching apparatus in Thunderbirds.
There is already a four month waiting list to get the sci-fi style parking space installed and bosses of Cardok - the company behind the hydraulic platforms - say orders are pouring in faster than they can build them.
