The Future! Car spotted in Japanese vending machine


What this photo doesn’t show is the car salesman, who’s in the back getting the keys and a fistful of quarters from his manager to take this thing for a test drive. Ha!

You can’t actually buy this Smart Car from a vending machine (yet?). It’s just a marketing gimmick. The machine doles out brochures about the car – cruddy, non-candy brochures – and I can’t tell if you actually have to put money in the machine to get the brochures. If you do, let me be the first to say to the people at Smart Car, “You magnificent bastards.”

Oh well. We’ll always have London’s sneaker vending machine and the entire D terminal of the Dallas-Fort Worth airport.
