Largest Automotive Mall in the World

Madness! The Autopia Europia auto mall will be the biggest of its kind in the world, under construction now, is said to have five-stories, in a 708,661-square-foot building and will have room for 200 car galleries, displaying 2526 different kinds of vehicles.

Located in Turkey, Istanbul, 24 banks will be standing by to help you pay for that dream machine, and 56 bars, restaurants and cafes await for you to think over your purchase. On top of that (literary!), there will be a full race track on top to test cars before you drive one home!
